Adaptation and Resident Camping

By Harmon Putter

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Spring 1967

Social workers have observed the differences in the speed at which different youngsters adapt to new educational and social experiences. Socioeconomic class is the greatest driving force behind speed of adaptation to resident camps; gender, age, family structure, and experience with camps or organized recreation were found not to affect adaptation. This should be taken into account when forming groups within camps, and when formulating admission policies.
