Thank you to all our friends who participated in our 2016 Camp Chanco survey. We are pleased to announce that Hunter Crum won the free camp session during our drawing of names of participants in the survey at Winter Camp! Congrats Hunter and we look forward to welcoming you back to camp in 2017 on us!
Our survey every year informs us of invaluable information such as favorite meals, favorite activities, suggestions for new programs, and areas where we can improve. We are pleased and proud to report that 98% of our respondents were satisfied with Camp Chanco, 92% are likely to return next summer, and 98% would recommend us to a friend! Zip lining, sailing, stand up paddle boarding and high ropes were the four favorite activities (in that order) and 40% of respondents could not identify a least favorite activity. Indian Night was far and away the favorite evening program and 56% could not identify a least favorite evening program. When asked “What aspect of Camp Chanco did your camper like the least?”, 75% indicated “none”. 73% of respondents agreed that their camper found opportunities to grow in faith at camp. 71% participated in our Change for Chanco program (almost $13,000 raised toward a Superman Swing for 2018!) and 80% felt our new Closing Celebration was “very good” or “excellent”.
Perhaps best of all, 100% of camper families responding agreed that Camp Chanco staff were “positive, trustworthy role models who took good care of my child during his/her session”! Thank you to all our 2016 camper families who participated in this survey for giving us your valuable feedback and please know that all information gathered will be used in our future planning to keep Chanco “the best summer camp in eastern Virginia” (as voted by Virginia Living readers four years in a row)! Chanco is you!
