Moment #43: Focus on youth development . . .
In 1997, there was a resurgence of emphasis on youth development outcomes of the camp experience.
In the mid 1990s, the Search Institute began providing results of research in schools on child and adolescent development, risk prevention, and resiliency based on a framework of four developed assets, which are positive experiences, relationships, opportunities, and personal qualities that young people need to grow up to be healthy, caring, and responsible adults.
