The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Camp Katherine Parson Business Plan.

Denzer, Kristin

Today, Phyllis Wheatley touches the lives of more than 3,000 men, women, and children annually. The agency has structured its programs to support, strengthen, and empower families. Phyllis Wheatley's diverse programs range from academic enrichment and child development to social services, sports and recreations, and Camp Parsons. In keeping with Katharine Parsons' vision, our objective is to expand the camp into a state of the art facility while retaining the rustic charm of the past. Due to vandalism, poor maintenance through the years, and a lack of adequate funding, the camp is in disrepair and needs to be upgraded. Camp Parsons will represent a center for youth development and community building. The redevelopment and expansion of Camp Parsons will allow the Camp to better offer environmental education and ecotourism, in addition to expanding the day camp programming and offering meeting and event facilities to businesses, schools, and nonprofit organizations. To do this, PWCC's proposed strategies will build on its key strengths, resolve its weaknesses, avoid major external threats, and exploit external opportunities.
