S2 E5 What Does the Mom Say?

Nov 8, 2022 | Camp Research, Parenting, Podcast

Say it louder for the folks in the back! For outdoor ministries focused mostly on kids and families –  parents are your primary constituents. Camp is one of the spaces where the final decision makers are not necessarily the ones having the experience, yet their perspective on how things go at camp is so, so vital.

We’re deep in summer 2022 parent data right now, and have compiled and analyzed data from 37+ camps and over 2500 parent responses to important questions about your ministry. Here’s some of what those parents had to say.
