This week I've been sharing the truth about my first summer camp. Overall it was a big success! But I definitely made some rookie mistakes. This series is all about helping you avoid my mistakes!
(Did you miss the beginning of this series? Find Mistake #1 here and Mistake #2 here.)
MISTAKE #3 - I DIDN'T TAKE PICTURES
If you read my first 2 camp posts, you know that I did do several things right. I was very focused on registrations, daily plans, and activities. I was even smart enough to hire extra help.
But I never once thought about taking pictures.
This left me at a disadvantage on 2 fronts:
When the realization hit me, I was so bummed!
DO THIS INSTEAD
While you could take your own photos, you'll already be pretty busy! A smarter solution is to assign this job to someone else:
You'll love having this burden off your shoulders during camp week. Best of all, the photos will be invaluable to you when you're promoting your next camp. (Just make sure that your parents sign a waiver saying you have permission to use their child's photo.)
If you're planning your first summer camp, I hope this series has helped!
Sara Campbell and I have also created a FREE summer camp checklist to help you have a successful summer camp. Just print it out and you'll have peace of mind that you're not forgetting something important. Phew!
