This bulletin is one of a series reporting the findings of investigations undertaken during 1936-37 under the Project in Research in Universities of the Office of Education. The project in Research in Universities represents a unique and significant innovation in cooperative research. This series focuses on the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) camps. The CCC camps were established to provide emergency work for unemployed, out-of-school youth. Soon after their establishment, educational opportunities were provided to enable these youths better to prepare themselves for employment and civic usefulness. After having observed the CCC for more than 4 years the American people seem quite universally convinced that the Civilian Conservation Corps has within it the elements for contributing not only to the conservation of natural resources but to the conservation of American youth as well. Now that the camps have been in operation for more than 4 years, they have thrown off their emergency aspects and are beginning to take on signs of permanency. It is well, therefore that the whole camp program should be deliberately and critically examined and evaluated to determine what their future course in American life should be. The two studies summarized in this publication are intended to add to this growing store of knowledge about the work of CCC camps. (Contains 5 tables.) Individual sections contain footnotes.
