Semper Fit wants your feedback

15 May 2014 | Cpl. Donovan Lee

Headquarters Marine Corps Semper Fit and Recreation is currently conducting a survey to collect information from active-duty service members, families, retirees and Department of Defense civilians on to assess their fitness needs and wants.


The survey will be open until June 1 for residents aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and surrounding areas and should take approximately 15 minutes to complete.


“Marine Corps leadership is interested in assessing the sports, fitness and recreation needs and interests of our patrons,” said Cathy Ficadenti, head of Semper Fit and Recreation Programs. 


The survey will help MCCS determine what programs to keep, and if they need to implement new ones to accommodate the needs of the community.


“While the survey is voluntary, it's important for individuals to let us know what they want,” said Paul Nilsen, the director of Camp Lejeune Semper Fit Division.  “If funds are diminished we want to ensure we are taking care of our customers’ most important programs and facility needs.”


The result of the survey will be available in the fall.


“The results are used by our headquarters personnel to fight for future funding and by local commands to meet the desires of their community,” said Nilsen.
