Chenery, Mary Faeth
Journal of Leisure Research, v13 n3 p195-207 1981
Eight to eleven year-old girls and their counselors in a summer camp were studied to ascertain the impact of the camp experience on the campers' self-concept and social competence behavior. Among the findings were that the campers' perceptions of the counselors as accepting and controlling were associated with significant changes in self-concept scores. (FG)
