While I am still planning up a formal review of the camp to be posted, here is a quick summary of the 2014 camper evaluations.
1) Overall Rating of the Camp
Goal #1: Skyline Council tells camp directors to strive for a 90% rating of "Pretty Good."
This year . . .
Love It: 92%

Overall, we have actually gone up from last year which is impressive. Please note that NOT a single person marked it is "not so good" on their evaluation.

This year . . 100% of the campers indicated an interest or a willingness to return to camp.
3) Interest In Returning to Their House
Goal #3: 80% will wish to return to their houses
This year, 100% expressed a strong desire of returning to their house.
4) Approval of Activities
Goal #4: All Activities Will Receive An Approval Rating of 85% or higher.
This year, all activities rated at 92% approval or higher
5) Camper Recommendations For 2014
82% of the camp felt it was perfect. However, 18 campers provided feedback that will be considered for next year.
It is an issue of being able to pay the real life bills. If I had my way, this would be a summer long overnight camp.
We had some unexpected problems plaguing the kitchen involving Sam's Club. We will most certainly try for next year though.
I will be talking to the others about that, and we will see what we can do.
Duly noted for set up of next year.
