MetadataShow full item record
The proposed study looks to determine which camp setting influence children's positive growth in development. Starting with literature review that explicates the characteristics of positive youth development and proposing a study of manipulating the supervision ratios between staff and campers, the proposed hypothesis that lower camp ratios would result in greater positive development will be tested. A total of 235 children aged 8-11 participated. The participant's improvement scores from both the experimental group and control group will be compared using a between groups t-test.
