|Description (Please keep to 3 sentences or less)||If you are going to measure finances or registrations you can do so with statistics and charts and spreadsheets and graphs. It’s a pretty tangible effort. But when it comes to measuring spiritual objectives or mission accomplishment it is less so. How does a camp know that it is doing what it is supposed to be doing and even being what it says it is? We are going to take a crack at defining success.||30 YEARS OF MISSION, MISTAKES AND MILESTONES|
