The purpose of this research is to examine how themes related to Ulrich Beck's Risk Society framework have affected organizations that are positioned intermediately between the institutions of education and family. Specifically, the study explores how notions of risk and risk management have become fundamental in the goals, organization and activities of summer camp programs. In addition, the study considers how social class conditions, the range of perceived risks, and organizational responses to them across camps located in two communities characterized by very different socioeconomic conditions.
