Property Use: Troop Leaders & Service Unit Members

 
The purpose of this survey is to help the Council learn more about its camps and what your girls would like to be able to do at camp. You'll be asked questions about whether you've taken your girls to camp, which camp(s) they've been to, what you thought about that experience, and what activities your girls would like to do at camp. It will probably take about 15-20 minutes for you to complete the survey. Please answer every question as accurately as you can. Your participation is completely voluntary, and will be anonymous. Your name will not be shared with anyone. Taking the survey means that you have given us your permission to participate. You can stop participating in the survey at any point, but completed surveys will help us the most with our goal of providing the best camps possible with our resources.

Thank you for your help with this very important project, and thank you for helping us learn more about our camp programs and property needs.
