Show and Tell: Successful Camp Visits for Donors and Prospects

On Tuesday, April 27th, JCamp 180 Mentor Natasha Dresner led a discussion about how to plan and implement successful camp visits. Do you struggle to schedule effective camp visits for your major donors and prospects? Are your visits well-run and do they yield real results? Bringing prospects and donors to camp can be a powerful way to build and foster relationships. Natasha discussed the nuts and bolts of planning for, running, and following up on successful camp visits.
