Briefing Papers

The CCA wants to help camp professionals remain current on research that may affect camp programs and/or practices, be helpful with grant applications, or provide key messages on the importance of the camp experience.

“Briefing Papers” are short summaries of current research on a particular topic. They provide key findings from camp related research as well as research from other related fields such as sociology, psychology, social work, health sciences, and recreation. A bibliography is included for each topic for further followup.

The Research Committee continues to develop and update these resources and welcomes additional contributions! If interested, please contact: Stephen Fine at
