Cancer Survivor Camps: Programming for Young Adult Cancer Survivors
MetadataShow full item record
This research project is a study of cancer survivor camps and their programs for young adult cancer survivors. The study analyzes the benefits of these camps and the programs’ effectiveness in improving the quality of life for camp participants. The literature review emphasizes that social support for young adult cancer survivors is very important, specifically for psychosocial rehabilitation. The social support young adult cancer survivors find at camp through the use of camp programs can be extremely beneficial. The research addresses the gap in the literature as to what programs are effective and engaging for young adult cancer survivors. This research consists of document analysis of peer-reviewed articles which survey young adult cancer survivors to determine their resource needs, reflective journals about camp participants engagement in programs collected in my role as a program facilitator, interviews of camp administrators as key experts in the field and an online survey of young adult cancer survivors about camp programming and its effectiveness.
