Organized camping has shown phenomenal growth in the twentieth century and has achieved recognition for its educational values by voluntary agencies, religious groups, schools, and public agencies. In our society, in which the working life is increasingly divorced from the soil, camping is of special value in re-establishing contact and familiarity with the out-of-doors. Day camping, church camping, and camping for children with special needs have grown especially rapidly in recent years; and governmental agencies have increased their participation. Camp programs are vitally concerned with the welfare of individual campers and their adjustment to a democratic society.
