Investing time into a professional and user friendly online camp registration system or camp management software can make some question if it’s really necessary. Below are a few reasons why we think it’s not only necessary, but also will help your bottom line!
What we hear all the time: “What we’re doing now works just fine for our needs and we don’t have the time (or energy, or money) to revamp everything”.
We can’t tell you what is right for you or your budget. But what we can tell you is, from years of experience, we’ve never had a client that wants to go back to paper after having a camp management software that really works! The ability to provide an
The ability to provide an up-to-date, technologically advanced and seamless online registration camp registration system to campers and their parents, with the ability to use the same system as an integral part of your internal registration database, is priceless.
Sure you still have campers and great activities every year, so obviously what you’re doing works.
But having something that “just works” and having something that can improve your business and allow you to spend your newly found free time on other projects that could potentially net you more income and improve other aspects of your camp can be worth the time, energy and cost of a registration system like this.
Having a system that works, for both your campers and their families, as well as for you and your team helps keep your team on task and informed, helps your bottom line and most importantly saves everyone time.
Internally, you’ll be able to generate an array of clever, intelligent and relevant reporting for your team, bosses, counselors and beyond.
Instead of wasting hours filing papers, inputting the data you need into long and ineffective spreadsheets and then attempting to create reports that are relevant and useful for you and your staff, switch to an all-encompassing system that serves you every step of the way, from a campers initial application to closing ceremonies all the way to next summer and beyond!
Most paper applications are long, sometimes confusing and full of forms that aren’t always relevant to each individual parent and camper. Some parents have multiple kids coming to camp, some have attended your camp in previous years and others are new!
An online camp registration system allows you to personalize the application experience, so based on questions you ask in the beginning, you can tailor make an application on the fly.
You’ll get the information you need and nothing more. Parents navigating your application online will spend less time scratching their heads and trying to make sense of what you need from them and you’ll spend less time assisting them with basic questions that arise from a complicated application.
Parents are entrusting you with their kids, whether for a day, a week or a whole summer session. Their first impression of your camp, your staff and the experience their kids will have with you, starts with a professional and easy-to-understand online application and camp registration system!
Don’t start off on the wrong foot before campers even arrive, get the information you need and build trust in your clients from the very beginning!
