"The purpose of this field study in particular has been, first, to set up a plan for the reorganization of Life's Summer Camps, based upon the hypothesis that camping should be essentially an educational enterprise and not merely a relief measure or a means of providing fresh air; and second, to operate those camps for a four-year period, making such applications and recommendations as seems warranted, basing them upon an analysis of the program in operation." Analysis of the author's 1925 reorganization of these Fresh-Air camps and the outcome after four years. Important and uncommon work in the reform and creation of the modern summer camp experience. ; Columbia University Contributions to Education : Teachers College Series; Vol. 390; 114 pages.
