Give Yourself A Pat On The Back!Donnez-vous une tape sur l’épaule!

In October, we invited camp directors to encourage their parents to go online and respond to Phase 3 of the Canadian Summer Camp Research Project .

Many of you did just that – THANK YOU! As a result, over 1000 (and still climbing!) additional parents are providing the research team at the University of Waterloo with the necessary information to complete this six-year study on the immediate and ongoing benefits of the summer camp experience.

We’ll publish the final results as soon as they are available! Your co-operation and your parents’ contributions are greatly appreciated.En octobre, nous avons invité les directeurs de camp à encourager les parents de leurs campeurs à répondre à un questionnaire en ligne dans le cadre du Projet de recherche sur les camps d’été canadiens . Plusieurs d’entre vous ont répondu à l’appel – MERCI! Grâce à vous, plus de 1000 parents ont fourni à l’équipe de recherche de l’Université de Waterloo les informations nécessaires pour compléter leur étude de six ans sur les bienfaits à court et long terme du séjour en camp d’été. Nous publierons les résultats dès qu’ils seront disponibles. Nous sommes reconnaissants de votre coopération et de la contribution des parents de vos campeurs.
