Description/Abstract

The American Camp Association has been integral in supporting youth development by identifying outcomes associated with participation in camp. The current study used the ACA Youth Outcomes Battery. The YOB provides youth programs with measures that focus on common outcomes. During the summer of 2015, we assessed a university outdoor day camp that partnered with a local private school (3rd-8th grade). Large percentages (i.e., 68%) of campers learned “a little” or “a lot” about the desired outcomes.
