Camp Admin: Choosing Quality Software

Camp admin have their fair selection of camp management softwares to shop for these days. We stress the importance of choosing a software that meets all the needs of your camp. You’ll also want one that will be flexible moving forward as you evolve and grow. We’re big fans of flexibility and customization here at CampSite! To help you find the best software for your camp admin team, we’ve put together a reference list to remind you of the great benefits of customizable tools!

Increase Your Overall Ease of Use

The belief that running camp should be less about chaos and confusion and more about passion, meaningful programs, and happy campers is what inspired CampSite. So, we created a camp management software that would remove the headache from the pre-registration planning process. Plus, each and every camp admin can tailor CampSite to their own camps’ needs. Our easy-to-navigate admin dashboard highlights your favorite CampSite features and even boasts an Enrollment Setup Wizard expertly designed to guide you through the entire process.

Personalize Your Connection w/ Campers and Parents

Within CampSite’s admin dashboard is the opportunity to completely customize the Parent Dashboard (and registration process for parents). We designed the Parent Dashboard so that camp admin can easily create custom messaging and branding to represent their camp. This is a great way for your camp to offer a personal and unique registration experience while reinforcing your brand and mission. Of course, there are plenty of other customization options available to you in our admin dashboard, including registration forms!

Cater the Enrollment Process to Each Camper

Perhaps the most consistent feedback we get from our current clients is their love for how customizable the enrollment process is. Our Admin Dashboard has an Enrollment Setup Wizard that puts the control back in your hands. You can choose the information you want parents to see and elect which questions or inquiries show on forms. Better yet, you can create your own questions or prompts with multiple response possibilities (drop-down menu, open-ended text, and more!). Our flexible customization feature was the topic of praise at the American Camp Association’s National Conference this spring! Many camp admin are thankful they’re able to provide non-binary responses when collecting information on a camper’s gender. This is just one of the many ways CampSite allows you to create a comprehensive, customized enrollment process.

Fit the Software to Your Camp

More than anything, finding a camp management software that will fit to the design of your camp and its processes is crucial. A good software will also give you plenty of room to grow. CampSite software makes running camp easier, more efficient, and less time-consuming for any camp admin team. Our core package is an affordable bundle of some of our most sought-after features such as online registration, advanced reporting, our Parent Dashboard, and more! From there you can add on modules such as transportation management and medical management for an extra benefit. The power is all yours – we’re here to help along the way!

Online Camp Registration: The Benefits of Taking Camp Digital

Camp Management Software

CampSite was created by camp directors, for camp directors to help streamline and automate a lot of the redundant tasks associated with camp management. It’s hard to believe there was a time when we all conducted business solely on paper – even camp registration!   It’s even still harder to believe many camps are struggling to find the best camp management solution for them.

That’s where CampSite comes in: our robust, intuitive camp software holds a lot of power, but its accessible and easy-to-navigate interface makes it easy to learn. Therefor, even if you don’t have a lot of experience in tech, you’ll become comfortable with it in no time.

We built CampSite around the task of all tasks: camp registration. Where camp, and most camp director’s headaches, begin! Our Online Camp Registration portal is a total game changer. It gives parents the ability to enroll their campers quickly and easily whether from a desktop, tablet, or smartphone. This on-the-go functionality is a hit amongst busy parents who don’t want to sit down to hours of paperwork. There’s no scanning, faxing, or mailing either – everything is digitally filed and sent directly to your management portal!

Customizing the Parent Experience

Camp directors can customize the enrollment process, too. Add enrollment options, pose important questions, display necessary waivers and forms, and offer add-ons. In addition, you can set filters, such as age, interest, or other logic restrictions, that will allow parents to only see the enrollment sessions that are available to their children. This provides a more catered camp registration experience for the parents instead of having them browse through endless, irrelevant options. You can easily set all of this up with the help of our CampSite support team, or with your staff (it’s really that easy!).

Plus, for families who aren’t yet ready to enroll or just need some more information, camps can choose to add Request for Information forms and lead tracking tools for marketing purposes.

The Benefits of Online Camp Registration

So, what do the camps that use CampSite and our online camp registration tool gain? Time, energy, and the freedom and creativity to focus on other initiatives. Brainstorm up new program ideas, work on bunk scheduling, and of course, use our transportation module to plan and route all  bus and carpool schedules! The bottom line is that camps run more efficiently and professionally with camp management software. Online camp registration is a hit with parents; we’re sure your management team and staff will love it, too!
