2014 Camp Survey Feedback

_DSC0923Thanks to everyone who took the time to complete our online surveys and shared important feedback about their camp experience with us this summer. We learned some valuable information, both about what families believe we do well and about areas in which we can improve.

  • 95% rated their overall experience as “Outstanding” or “Very Good”
  • 90% of families heard about us through a friend
  • 2 out of 3 families visited our Facebook page daily or every few days
  • 92% of families say the are “Definitely” or “Most Likely” returning to us next summer
  • Favorite Middle/Upper/Senior Camp activities: Swimming, Sports, Adventure/Challenge, Archery, Woodshop, Cooking, Field trips, and Special Events
  • Favorite Lower Camp activities: Playground, Swimming, Sports and Outdoor Games, Yozumba, and Music
  • Favorite lunch: Friday BBQ!

We also asked parents to quantify for us the level of growth they saw in their children in eight developmental outcomes that they felt were attributable to their Beaver experience. Here is what we learned from you:

  • Friendship Skills – 62% saw moderate or significant growth
  • Independence – 65% saw moderate or significant growth
  • Teamwork – 61% saw moderate or significant growth
  • Perceived Competence – 68% saw moderate or significant growth
  • Interest in Exploration – 64% saw moderate or significant growth
  • Responsibility – 62% saw moderate or significant growth
  • Problem-Solving Confidence – 65% saw moderate or significant growth
  • Camp Connectedness – 71% saw moderate or significant growth

The Beaver camp experience clearly builds critical assets in children that will serve them well beyond camp. We continue to be intentional in all of our programming towards continued achievement of these goals.
