The concern of this study is to determine the feasibility of the establishment and operation of private boys' and girls' camps on Indian reservations in the United States. It was instituted at the request of the Bureau of Indian Affairs in the course of over-all efforts to investigate further economic development for the various reservations. This study considered such development in terms of economic, educational, and sociological growth over a period of time. The private camp for boys and girls proposed by this study differs in many instances from other forms of camping in the United States today. Such a camp is customarily referred to as "residential" in order to distinguish it from the day camp which does not provide overnight accommodations for its campers. Residential camps are further classified as private, organizational or agency, and public; the camp to be considered in this study is privately owned and operated. Not just a study, this report also provides lots of practical information, building plans, and other material of interest to the prospective camp entrepreneur.
