Mindset Transfer Camp to School

  • Research Project

What We Do

The aim of the Mindset Transfer project is to (1) understand how campers and counselors talk about skill and mindset development and (2) help campers see the connection between the skills and mindsets they learn at camp and how to apply them in places like school, sports and the arts.
