Single Parent Families at Camp: The Essence of an Experience

By Bernard Reisman, Gladys Rosen

American Jewish Committee (AJC), March 1984

The Summer Camp Seminar for Single Parents and Their Children Described in this publication was co-sponsored by The American Jewish Committee and B'nai B'rith Camps. The Seminar was carefully constructed to combine a family vacation in a camp setting with professionally guided exploration of the issues that trouble single parents and their children. This illumination of shared experiences helped to encourage a sense of community and mutual support among both the parents and the children who participated the in the program. The authors hope that this pilot project will provide a model for other innovative programs to serve single-parent families.
