For the past few summers, Camp Fire Camps across the country have field-tested the Camp Program Quality Assessment (C-PQA) process. The C-PQA is an observational tool that helps camps assess the types of camp interactions and experiences that contribute to youth development. Beyond Safe Environment to Youth Engagement
