Hello camp researchers and evaluators! Welcome again to Research 360: ACA's new full circle approach to research and evaluation. I promised in last week's post that I would dive deeper into ACA's 5-year research project, which is one element of Research 360 (local camp evaluation is the other).

Because of Camp…®...so much is possible
Introduction
The American Camp Association is a community of camp professionals who, for more than 100 years, have joined together to share our knowledge and experience and to ensure the quality of camp programs. Just as our membership is diverse and our programs distinct, so are the children who come to us to participate in the camp experience. Through what we teach, the opportunities we offer, and the example we set, children become part of a sharing community.
