Creating an Elite University Camp Program

Across the country, kids are pouring outside and onto the fields decked out in their official summertime uniform of t-shirts and shorts, swimsuits and tennis shoes, helmets and pads.

They’ve got clubs. They’ve got cleats. They’ve been waiting for this all year – sports camp at your university.

They’re ready. Are you ready for them?

Running a university sports camp–or overseeing a bunch of them–you know a good year is so much more than shaving tenths of a second off the dash or a 60-yard punt. You want your campers to have the time of their life, but you also have a business to run. And maybe you’d even like to see your camp grow into the type that kids can’t wait to be a part of and parents see as elite.

The ACTIVE C.A.M.P. Initiative is our vision for elite, successful university camp programs. It begins with all camps associated with the university being unified through the use of one university camp management software. Individual coaches retain management of their own camps, but the Athletic Department gains critical insight into four areas that ultimately reflect on and/or put them at risk.

4 High Risk Areas of Every University C.A.M.P.

Compliance: Making sure all camps are operating according to regulations

Accounting and Finance: Simplifying payments, refunds, discounts, and reports

Marketing and Brand: Protecting the university while growing the individual camps

Potential Risks: Verifying all risks are minimized and waivers are in place

Whether it’s one camp or many, aligning these four key areas will help you increase revenue while decreasing risk for your university and your campers. It will save you a lot of time, too.
