Abstract

The objective of this experiential project was to examine the function of an administrative position in a recreation department's summer activities program.

Major areas that were studied were program offerings, personnel management, task structure, and budgeting.

Examination of these areas revealed that program offerings are basically determined by community demand since the Recreation Department exists to serve the community. It was discovered that personnel management is an important and ongoing process. It became evident that the organizational aspect of recreation department work i s the key to success fully run programs. Finally, it was learned that budgeting was done on a "break-even" concept and was actually quite flexible.
