Thank you to all who participated in our 2015 Camp Chanco survey! We had close to one hundred families participate giving us valuable input helping us to make the improvements and changes YOU want to see at Chanco on the James! It is wonderful to hear what we are doing well and what you want us to keep doing. Thank you! Thank you for taking the time to participate in this valuable tool for the benefit of our future programming.
And, as promised, one lucky survey participant will win a FREE Camp Chanco session for summer 2016 – a one or two-week session, your choice! Stay tuned to our website and Facebook page to see who the lucky winner is! We are thrilled to know and pleased to share that 98% of our survey recipients agreed that our camp staff were positive, trustworthy role models who took care of our campers. 94% of our survey participants would recommend Chanco to a friend. Far and away, the zip lines, sailing and high ropes were the favorite camp activities, so we will be sure these activities don’t go away and that we continue improvements in these loved program areas. Feedback like this from previous years’ surveys have led to the addition of the “Leap of Faith” high ropes element and an additional zip line added in 2014!
Battle of the Bands and Indian Night hold the top spots as the favorite Evening Programs. Thanks to your input, we know to continue these beloved programs next year! 73% of our respondents could not identify an aspect of Chanco they liked least. 75% of our families surveyed indicated that their camper found opportunities to grow in faith this summer at camp. We received valuable input on the meals you loved the best and those that could go away without being missed. It is incredibly helpful to learn that most of our friends found Chanco through a friend, their parish, or are second generation campers whose parent is an alumni. Thank you parishes, alumni and friends for those grass roots referrals! You are helping us to spread the magic of Chanco and because of you more and more campers each year are able to call Chanco their “second home”.
Again, we cannot thank you enough for taking the time to share your opinions with us. Your input makes the difference! And to all our fantastic survey participants, be on the lookout for our 2015 Camp Chanco session winner – it could be YOU! (Survey winner will be contacted directly as well as announced on our Facebook page).
