This study utilized a modified Delphi technique to develop a standard definition of a Farm Safety Day Camp. Extension Safety Specialists from nine Midwestern states were asked to nominate individuals who had experience in developing and conducting day camps to form a panel. A three-round modified Delphi was used. In the first round key elements of a definition were identified by the panelists. The panelists then rated the elements on a Likert-type scale and added comments on the second and third rounds. Of the 15 elements created during the study, 14 were used in the final definition.
