Does camp make a difference? “Yes” always feels like the answer, but how do we know?
This is the question we have sought to answer in the Effective Camp Project.
As of summer 2019, 37 camps across the United States and Canada have participated in this exciting research project. They represent multiple Christian denominations. We survey campers on the first day of camp, the last day of camp, and again 2-3 months after they return home. We also survey camper parents.
The resulting data provide a robust picture of the immediate and lasting impacts of the Christian summer camp experience.
In summer 2018, Kuriakos participated in the Effective Camp Study.
Here's some of what we learned about the Kuriakos Community.
