For parents, finding the right summer camp for their children can be time consuming and quite a challenge. The lack of time to search through multiple sources of information, both online and offline, can make the task of finding the right summer camp difficult, especially with the summer season right around the corner. Parents pressed for time are looking for the smartest, most convenient way to find a summer camp.
Summer Camp Live aims to help parents solve this problem in an easy way. Traditionally, camp fairs are held throughout the spring and summer in multiple cities across the United States. The huge downside of attending a camp fair in a specific location is the time and effort required to attend. "Camp fairs may not be near you, and the selection of camps may be inadequate or not representative of the types of camps you are searching for," says Vicky di Colloredo-Mels, founder of Summer Camp Live.
Summer Camp Live is a revolutionary concept that offers an innovative solution. "Through our Virtual Summer Camp Fair, anyone can enjoy live interaction with hundreds of camps but without the travel or expense. We bring the fair to you!" says di Colloredo-Mels. Summer Camp Live offers a virtual experience unlike no other in the summer camp industry. With camps of all types and locations worldwide, the search is now simple, quick and cost effective.
"As the mother of two kids I didn't have the time to go from place to place looking for a summer camp. A lot of the information available online is dispersed and hard to find," says di Colloredo-Mels. "I had to jump from website to website, a very time consuming process. Besides, it was also very tedious to manage all the information."
Summer Camp Live offers the smart alternative. At the Online Fair, participants have a complete virtual view of each camp that is the next best thing to actually visiting. Parents and kids watch videos of camp facilities and activities but most importantly conduct real-time text or video chats with camp staff and other attendees right from their computer. In addition, camps offer downloadable documents and brochures, facilitating the parent’s research. All documents and brochures are stored electronically in the visitor’s virtual briefcase.
"Our aim is to provide a virtual camp fair experience year round, 24 hours a day. The Online Fair is always open and is always free," says Felipe Ospina, a Summer Camp Live managing partner. "We strive to provide the best summer camp search experience and a Virtual Camp Fair is the best way to save parents time and money."
Summer Camp Live also offers a comprehensive, state of the art summer camp directory. "We wanted to ensure parents also had access to directory services", says Ospina. "We offer parents the best search experience and results; our online directory complements the virtual camp fair extremely well."
To sign up, parents may visit Summer Camp Live's Information Page. Participants in the Online Fair are entered into a drawing to win a $500 Campership. "Giving out a campership award is a way for us to give back to the community and assist parents who may be trying to make ends meet in these difficult times," says di Colloredo-Mels. "It also helps contribute a small grain of sand towards a child experiencing the summer of their lifetime."
Camps can learn more and reserve a spot in the virtual fair by emailing us at the email address provided in the release or by visiting the For Camp Owners section in http://www.summercamplive.com.
