If only one out of every six American children attends summer camp programs, there’s a whole lot of potential campers out there, just waiting for YOU to create a day camp closeby to their neighborhood.

So now what? How do you go from that great little idea to a fully functioning day camp that’s signing up campers, hiring staff, and getting ready for opening day? Stay tuned- and we’ll let you know.

In this episode, we cover:

  • Location location location!
  • Business, marketing and branding plans
  • Quick and easy camper registration.
  • Set up open house- “Meet the Director” events- Zoom, in-person, etc.
  • Create YouTube/Facebook/Instagram videos- Tell them who you are, why you’re doing this, and how awesome it’s going to be!
  • How do you ingratiate yourself with the local community and become a partner
  • How do you position your proposition? What does the local community need?
  • Who is the oversight in your area? DCFS, Health Department, ACA?
  • And much much more!
