10 Oldest Camps in America

Summer time is here in America and that means camp registration!! Most children are already at camp or signing up. Think for a minute about the registration process and how easy it was. Think about how everything was done electronically and all you had to do was click submit. Now, think back 100 years. I know your probably thinking what the heck, but there are a handful of camps that have been around since the 1800s. Thing about what there registration process included if they even had one.

Then it was all about the best filing system. Now, it is all about the best registration software. Having a great registration software can make it easy for customers to register and pay with no hassle. Now, unfortunately, these 10 camps I am about to mention did not have RegPoint back in their day.

Tips to Improve Your Summer Camp

Camps are a huge part of our society today, whether they be sport, dance, art, church, day or overnight camps. There is an incredible variety of summer and year-long camps for all age groups and levels of experience. With all these camps, how do you as a camp director make yours stand out from everyone else’s? Well, here are a few pointers on improving your summer camp and growing your business from our team of online registration experts. 

Newsletters and Emails

Don’t let those campers forget about you. Before and after the camp season, send out regular emails and newsletters with updates about the camp and keep them in the loop. Collect those email addresses by first having the parents or campers fill out registration forms. You can do this by simply getting good camp registration software that will store all the information for you in a database that allows you to access it at any time.

Simplify Your Registration Process for Summer Programs

The end of summer is almost here. That means camps, after school summer programs, and fun runs are or will be coming to a close. Bummer. But now’s the perfect time to ensure that next year’s programs and events will be easier to organize. If you’re not using registration software to capture applicant information, you’re making things harder on yourself.

Registration software virtually eliminates all paperwork, making the sign-up process simple for both participants and registrars. No more printing and filing paper permission slips or checks, and no more hunting down applicants who forgot to fill in a line to two. All the information you need regarding the applicants (including whether they’ve paid) is available to you 24/7, and is as easy to review as signing into Google.
