The Logic of Camp in Christian Education

New research from the Confirmation Project and Effective Camp Research Project demonstrates that camping ministries are often integral parts of Christian education programs and have lasting effects on participants. Many of the best practices of camping ministry are also transferrable to other educational settings, allowing the logic of camp to enhance related ministries, such as confirmation instruction.
