The children’s camping industry is a vastly diverse industry. Once considered principally for recreation, the children’s camping industry has evolved into an offshoot of the larger industry of child-care. This has resulted from a change in focus by many camps, which have begun to incorporate day-care programs into their established schedules. This change in focus seems to have been spurred by the desire of parents to have more enriching alternatives when it comes to the care of their children, as well as the camp’s desire to improve their economic outlooks. With so many households made up of either single parents working full-time, or two parent families where both parents are working full-time, child-care has become an immensely important issue.
