Four Weeks of Fun
What haupens to the kids who are growing up in an environment
that keeps them from a normal, haiapy childhood-kids who need
a second chance?
For 240 boys from the metropolitan areas the answer will be
four weeks at the Fresh Air Camp this summer. There they will
get good food, rest, outdoor fun and a chance for the adult care and
understanding they have never had.
The boys are between the ages of seven and fourteen and are
selected by social agencies because of behavior problems which
need the treatment that specialized camping can provide. .A
Some of them have trouble adjusting ait home, others at school
and others in the communitv. At camp, under the guidance of
psychologists and socicloghts they are helped to make these adjust-
ments by learning to live with adults and other boys of their own
Eight boy. and a counselor live in each cabin with the camp-
ing program planned on a cabin ba;ris. For four weeks they swim,
box, play ball and hike together, learning to cooperate and fit in
with the group. Individual problems are always considered by the
counselor who fits the program to meet each boy's need.
Counselors are graduate and undergraduate students with a
special interest in child welfare. They work in a combined program of
counseling and class discussions to determine the best immediate
and long range program of treatment for each child.
One of the important duties of the cabin counselor is to keep
a daily log of each boy's behavior. These logs are used to evaluate RESTING IN THE SHADE-Making friends is one of the things boys learn at camp and what bet-
his progress and are a basis for recommendations for further treat- ter place to talk with a pal than under a shady tree on a summer afternoon. That's the main
ment which are given to the agency which sent the boy to camp., lodge in the background.

LOOK MA, I'M DIVIN'-With the help of swimming teachers and lifesavers, kids who have done
their swimming in a bathtub are soon giving the fish some competition. Counselors say that boys
who are afraid of the water when they arrive often become swimming enthusiasts after a few les-
sons. It's fun when you know how.

SOUP'S ON-And it takes a lot of soup to feed 240 boys who have
been playing hard all day. To make sure that tasty, nourishing
meals are always ready the camp employs a dietician as well as
several cooks. After dinner comes dishwashing, but with every-
one helping it's done in double quick time.

OFF ON A HIKE-Three hundred acres of hilly, wooded land provide plenty of opportunity for
exploring trips, overnight hikes and nature study. To city kids the camp is a whole new world.

SUMMER HOME-Helping to keep the cabin clean is one of the
jobs that the boys do together and woe be to the one who doesn't
make his bed and spoils the cabin's record.
