Summer Camp 2024: Process and Rates

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

  • Before you fill out the form, it's helpful to gather the materials you'll need: 
    • A high-res JPG flyer promoting your camp, with dimensions of 600x900. This is your chance to advertise your camp and include as much information as you need! Many clubs use Canva to create these.
    • The link to the camp registration site — this is where people will be taken if they click on your camp's flyer in the e-blast.
    • How many e-blasts you want to buy — and on which dates. The dates are below, and they get cheaper as you buy more. You can pick, for example, all 11 dates, five dates in a row, or you can pick select dates throughout the campaign.
    • Contact info for the person who should receive the invoice or be contacted with questions.

Step 2: Fill Out the Form Below

Now that you've gathered your materials, fill out the form linked here. Be sure to select "Summer Camp E-Blast (2024)" under the question "What type of e-blast are you requesting?"
