Over 90 Seconds:

  • 10. A narrative video showing the transformations that happen because of your camp

Bonuses:

  • Special chants or traditions - If you have a special chant or tradition that happens on a camper's birthday record that from the perspective of the camper (you can't tell in the video who's birthday it is). Send this to each camper, who's birthday is in the fall, winter, or spring on their special day.
  • Special Holidays - Camp Ouareau (north of Montreal, QC, Canada) records a Bonne Année (Happy New Year) video, in secret, every couple of summers.
