Dear (name): Summer staff salaries are an issue each of us will address shortly. For some time,
many camp directors have wondered how their summer camp staff salaries compared
to other positions in the same region and in comparable camp settings. Baseline
data about summer camp staff salaries may be useful information for the camping
movement in general, as well as for specific camps. Your camp has been randomly selected for participation in this project. We are
asking only a small percentage of accredited agency, religiously affiliated, and
independent day and resident camps across the United States to complete and
return this short questionnaire. Therefore, your participation is extremely important. You may be assured of confidentiality. The questionnaire has an identification
code number for mailing purposes only. This coding is done so that we may
check your camp’s name off our mailing list when your questionnaire is returned. The results of this survey will be made available to the American Camping
Association and will be distributed at the next ACA Conference in Denver. You
can receive a copy of the results in mid-February if you send us a self-addressed
stamped envelope along with your completed questionnaire. To get the results tabulated by April, it is necessary to have the data as soon as
possible. We are asking that you please return the questionnaire by February 18.
Since ACA is doing this study on a small budget, you can contribute further to the
organization by putting your own stamp on the return addressed envelope enclosed. We appreciate your assistance. We believe we are undertaking a valuable and
useful project. If you have any questions, please call us at 919—962—1222.
Thank you again. Sincerely, (names)
