This article presents the results of a multi-site evaluation of Oregon's 4-H Camps. The evaluation assessed 3 main areas: 1) personal growth, 2) life skill development, and 3) camper satisfaction. Questionnaires were administered at the end of each camp, with the data aggregated and analyzed across camps. Results revealed significant changes in personal growth and the development of selected life skills. Results also indicated that the campers enjoyed camp and their camp counselors. The results are confirming of what we know about the impact of camp and are important for sustaining investments currently made in camp programs.
