Elementary school age summer camp programs are widely attended and supported in the U.S., but opportunities for economically disadvantaged students and non-white children are lacking. This session will provide an overview of a unique children's summer camp program created and implemented by university students as an additional field experience within their coursework. Presenters will also share focus group and survey data collected as part of the project.
