Gucker, Peter L.
Camping Magazine, v74 n5 p25-28 Sep-Oct 2001
At camp, children learn values and skills that are seldom included in school curricula. The community-based environment of camps is conducive to learning self-assurance, community respect, and healthy competition, and to understanding diversity. Exposure to Nature promotes an infectious enthusiasm for the wilderness and for learning outdoor skills, and fulfills childrens' appetite for adventure. (TD)
