A Study of a Formed Group Within the Day Camp Program of the Coney Island Community Center, With Selected Descriptions of Four Types of Reactions to the Program
The writer of this dissertation first became interested in making a study of day camps during the summer of 1950. It was at this time that employment was secured to fill the interim between the first and second year of graduate education in social casework. The writer had made application to the Jewish Association for Neighborhood Centers for employment as a day camp counselor and after a screening interview by the Executive Director of the Association, he was accepted for the position with the concurrence of the Director of the Coney Island Community Center in which agency the writer agreed to work. While employed in the capacity of counselor, a keen interest was taken in the activities and operation of the day camp program and an excellent opportunity was seen for the development of a master's dissertation to be written in this field. After discussing this possibility with the director of the agency and with the dissertation advisor, it was decided to choose this subject for research.
