A summer project

We all know how much fun Camp PALS is, and how the memories stay with us throughout the year. But how does Camp PALS affect the way counselors look at disability? That’s the question that a group of former counselors and I are going to try to answer this summer with a research study. We will be surveying counselors before and after Camp to see how they approach disability. The surveys have been developed with the help of academics at multiple universities and employ many different techniques.

We are committed to making Camp PALS the best summer camp in the world. But we also want to fight stereotypes and change minds. This study will let us know how we’re doing and what we can do to make Camp PALS even better.

Stay tuned for the results.
