Summarizes three studies relevant to camp. In focus groups, 68 adolescent camp counselors reported camp helped them become more responsible and confident, communicate better, and manage stressful situations. A study involving 400 campers found improvement in communication, leadership, decision making, working in groups, and understanding self. Eleven camp staff reported in interviews that camp improved leadership, teamwork, skill development, and self-esteem. Camp culture facilitated these outcomes. (TD)
