Participation Trends Camp facilitated a learning community for 104 different incoming 9th graders with 24 current/former CVU students, two CVU staff, and an on-site director.
~20% of incoming 9th graders (1 in 5) attended between 2002-2006.
~33% of incoming 9th graders (1 in 3) attended between 2007-2012
Figure 1 summarizes the 2012 enrollment for each interest area by town. Every Camper chooses to participate in three interest areas which meet every day. In each Interest Area group, Campers are able to: (1) Meet peers with similar interests, (2) Learn new skills, and (3) Create positive connections to CVU resources.
Figure 2 shows typical results for annual exit surveys. Campers are constantly encouraged to participate in a positive learning environment. This year the CVU Summer Camp helped 9th graders make a smooth transition to high school:
~ 90% agreed they made at least one new friend,
~ 95% agreed they treated individuals and property with respect,
~ 75% agreed they learned new skills during interest areas
~ 80% agreed they could find their way around CVU resources,
~ 65% agreed they planned to join a club or sport,
~ 95% agreed they worked effectively in a group
