Bob Ditter, M.Ed., LCSW, Camp Consultant
"This is a great and important book for the camp industry.  Any camp professional truly interested in delivering what they say they deliver -- quality experiences for children -- or making changes in their camp that increasingly make them "better" needs to read this book.  People tell me I've changed the industry over the past 20 years.  True or not, this book is the next level.  You can publicly say I said so."  In reference to the culture resource.  See Ditter's full message on the cd.
