Campers with Disabilities: Encouraging Positive Interaction.
Bedini, Leandra A.
Camping Magazine, v67 n4 p21-24 Mar-Apr 1995
Negative attitudes toward disabled people are fostered by society's body-beautiful ethic, success orientation, nondisabled guilt, the concept of "spread," and media stereotypes. Strategies for improving camper and staff attitudes toward disabled people include precamp training, social skills training, role playing, a positive camp philosophy, and securing role models for disabled campers.
