When it comes to marketing your camp, there’s no better strategy than to get people on the property. We take a lot of pride in the site and the work that we do and we know that getting people on site is the way to get them to buy in to your culture and see the true value of their money.

Whether you do it in the spring, summer or year-round, it’s so important that when you can get families in the door, that you are being extra intentional with the time they have with you. From the welcome, to the activities, to the presentations, to the departure, every moment should be considered to help parents understand why your camp is right for their child.

Seem a little daunting? Have no fear, The Day Camp Pod is here! For this topic, Andy, Ehren, Sam are joined by the mysterious “H” Rothenberg from Camp Coach and Triple C Day Camp to give you the inside scoop on how to get the “yes” and the “wow” from families at your visiting day.

Tune in to this episode to find out about:

  • Why do these visits? What’s the point?

  • How can you make these happen at different points of the year?

  • How do you manage the visit if they happen mid-camp day?

  • What are some tips to put your best foot forward when parents are on site?

  • What are the nitty gritty details that you might not think about, but what you need to do?
