Abstract

THE PROBLEM AND DEFINITIONS OF TERMS USED

One of the most significant developments of education during the past quarter century is the guidance movement. This educational trend has not limited its usage to schools but also includes outside interests. The rapid growth of summer camping is one example of counseling and guidance, away from the educational system, as we know it.

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

It is the purpose of this study to show (1) the ideals and philosophy behind the beginning of the camp; (2) the development of the physical properties of the camp; and (3) to show the changes in the administration and program planning to conform with the ideals established in the beginning.

IMPORTANCE OF THE STUDY

The importance of this study is exemplified by the starting of new camps by other industries and private owners. The tremendous rush to out door living by both adults and children has created a vital interest in the development of worthwhile summer camps.

Subject(s)

Camping – West Virginia.
