Camp tours are an invaluable tool for fundraising and enrollment—but only if they are done right.
Don’t wing it. Ensure the quality is there every time with a mandatory checklist. The JCamp 180 camp tour checklist
has been popular, and it has been adapted to the circumstances of individual camps a lot since we first released it.
We asked our most recent Enrollment Program
cohort to tell us where they stand regarding each item on the checklist. Take a look at the results to see how you compare
Are there things everyone else is doing and you’re not? Or maybe the reverse? As you look through all the items, it will probably be a mix. And we hope you’ll find some things you’d like to start doing to improve your tours, and get improved results.
