Barb Gray, Director of Ontario Easter Seals Camps, knows how to make camping research work for her!
In a note to Dr. Stephen Fine, Chair of the CCA Research Committee, Barb writes:
“I use the data from the University of Waterloo Canadian Summer Camp Research Project when applying for grants to make the proposal more professional by providing quantifiable data. I also use the research findings when speaking to our Board members, Senior Management and fundraising staff as most never attended camp as children and believe that summer camp is a luxury. I use the research findings with case studies of our campers to make the presentations more powerful.
Thanks so much for doing this research and showing the amazing benefits attending a summer camp has for our campers.”
