    Description

    Understanding whether young people perceive camp to be supportive of their needs for autonomy, relatedness, and competence (ARC) is important for camp administrators and staff as they plan and structure opportunities for positive youth development. We conducted a study during the summer of 2006 at a Girl Scout camp in Pennsylvania. Through hierarchical linear regression analyses, we explored how motivation to attend camp, the camp's support for individuals' autonomy, relatedness and competence, motivation to attend camp, and the interaction of these variables predicted girls' interests in camp.
