More than fun.
Research indicates that campers leave Camp For All with a sense of hope, growth in self-confidence and in an environment of understanding they realize they are not alone.
Drs. Clifton E. Watts, Ann M. Gillard, and Peter A. Witt from the Texas A&M University Department of Recreation, Park and Tourism Sciences, conducted a multiple year study on Camp For All. The purpose was to understand outcomes associated with camp participation and what key events, activities and processes lead to these changes for children with challenging illnesses and special needs at summer camp.
