self-esteem, group dynamics and non-
competition were stressed.
In the 1980s, camps were competing
to see who had the best facilities. Now,
he said, is the decade of back to nature.
"But the theme through all those
years:' said Finkelberg, "is life-long
friendships and memories. The
child comes home a different person
because of the experience:'
