DescriptionThe Camp Initiatives Program was developed to increase revenue and visitation through a series of policy changes. During the summer of 1990, the program was evaluated at six Maryland State Parks and found to increase revenue and visitation by 3% and 16%, respectively. More intensive marketing efforts, implementation of a computerized reservation system, increased community relations, and status of interpretive programs were specifically addressed as management recommendations. With minor policy revisions, the Camp Initiatives Program will continue to enhance the visitor experience and meet management objectives.
