5 Easy Ways To Effectively Market Your Summer Camp

Are you planning to have a Camp this Summer? If so, April is the perfect month to start marketing your Camp.

However, if you have been too busy to market your camp; it’s never to late to start today!

The summer time is a great season for the business of Child Care. In fact, school-age children are out of school and parents need a fun and enriching place for their children to be.

Today I want to share with you 5 easy ways to market your summer camp:

1. Create a festive Flyer about your camp on your computer. Be sure to include the dates of the camp, events along with field trip information. Include a registration form with the flyer.

2. Start Marketing your Summer Camp On Your Social Media Pages; using summer related images that include a link to your website or your phone number.

3. If you own a center, display Summer Camp banners on your playground fence or in your windows. (If allowed in your municipality)

4. Send flyers and information to families that attended your camp in previous years.

5. Plan lots of fun theme based activities along with field trips and be sure to market all that you have planned for your camp! Need Summer lesson plans for preschoolers, join the Curriculum Club!

All you have to do is Plan it, Market it and they will come!

Much Success to you!

Planning Fieldtrips For Your Summer Program

imagesCATF3502During the month of April, I plan my entire Summer Field trip Schedule. In fact, my field trip schedule for the preschoolers and the School-age children are slightly different.

The School-age children go on field trips every day and the preschoolers go on a field trip every other week. I plan daily field trips for the School-age children because they get bored being indoors all day and they need some time away from the program.

However, preschoolers need more supervision on field trips and I believe the liability is greater to take preschoolers on field trips every day.

So, here is what I recommend that you do before planning field trips:

  1. Create a field trip policy for your Summer Camp and train your staff on your policies.
  2. Places that you can take the School-age children every week include: The local park, Library, Free movie Camp and visit a local attraction. (For at least 1-2 hours a day)
  3. Plan to take the preschoolers on a field trip every other week and invite parents to join you, to assure adequate supervision.
