United Methodist Effective Camp Project

Desert Southwest Conference Camp & Retreat Ministries is so excited to have Mingus Mountain and Potosi Pines chosen to participate in an exciting research project called the United Methodist Effective Camp Project. The study is designed to assess the impact of the summer camp experience and we are one of more than 20 United Methodist camps participating this summer.
As part of this study, campers may be asked to complete a short questionnaire on the first and last days of camp. These are very short and can be filled out in about 5 minutes so as not to take away from the camp experience. A third questionnaire will be sent to campers after they return home from camp.
No names or other identifying information of campers will be used in any research documents or publications and parent/guardian permission will be requested when you register your camper.
Please note: There is no penalty or reward for participation or non-participation, it is totally voluntary. We are excited to see the awesome results and appreciate your help! If you’d like to learn more  about the United Methodist Effective Camp Project, check out their website:
