Pyles Participating in 5-year National Research Study

For decades, many in Southern California have known that Pyles Camp, and programs like it, are an effective way to help our young people grow and thrive. Now there is new research from our friends at the American Camp Association (ACA) to prove it!

Pyles is participating in a 5-Year Camp Impact Study, along with many other camps nation-wide.

In 2016, ACA set out to explore the lasting impacts and the ways camp experiences prepare young people for college, their careers, and their lives beyond camp. The study has three major components, one focused on youth, one on staff, and one that explores leadership development through CIT programs and other staff recruitment strategies.
