Research Shows Experiences at Camp Boggy Creek, a SeriousFun Camp, Deliver Positive Impact for Children Coping with Illness
Date:5/14/2013

Eustis, FL (PRWEB) May 14, 2013

Children with serious illness are faced with a myriad of physical and social challenges often resulting in isolation from peers, loneliness and limited personal growth. According to an evaluation conducted by the Yale Child Study Center, children with serious illnesses who attend a SeriousFun Camp showed improved confidence, higher self-esteem, a greater sense of independence and increased interest in social activities. The study also revealed that children’s stress related to their illness decreased as a result of the camp experience.

More than 250 families from 12 of SeriousFun’s U.S. and European–based camps, including Camp Boggy Creek, were surveyed before and after the 2012 summer camp experience, examining the impact of residential camps on the lives of children and their families. All SeriousFun Camps deliver the same or similar programs, and there were no material differences in outcomes among member camps.

“The study confirms what we’ve known anecdotally about the positive impact our camps have on children,” said June Clark, President and CEO, Camp Boggy Creek. “We plan to use this information to optimize the outcome-based programming our camp delivers.”

Significant findings from the study include the following observations from parents of children that attended a SeriousFun Camp:

  •     83% reported an increase in confidence;
  •     80% reported an increase in self-esteem;
  •     76% reported an increase in maturity;
  •     74% reported an increase in independence;
  •     72% reported an increased interest in social activities.
