The following article was written by James Davis - Executive Director of the Vanderkamp Center, and the founder of Summer Camp Revolution. James saying other smart things Every year as I plan staff training, I find the most clarity of purpose when I reflect on things that went poorly during the previous summer. The way I figure it, the things that went well did so because the skills involved in making them go well were taught well e...

Marketing Summer Camp MUST be Personal. New camp parents don't care about your 2 to 1 ratio or being "nestled down by Lake Whatsitsface".   They have no idea what you mean by the words "traditional summer camp". You won't reach them by spouting these clichés of summer camp marketing. You have to reach out to people emotionally if you want to develop the kind of relationship that culminates in them handing over care of their childr...

The Nakasendo is an old road in Japan that connects Kyoto to Tokyo. It was once a major foot highway, but today small sections retain some of its historical feel. In October I walked along 5 short sections of it, staying at traditional inns along the way. My guide was +Craig Mod who is fluent in Japanese, his ease with the language made the trip possible. And he is a great travel companion (he took the picture of me in the onsen). The Nakasendo is full of history and many artists and poets over the centuries have travelled along it, including Basho, the haiku genius. We met a lot of characters, too, and thoroughly enjoyed the exquisite details that make up this country.

Making great camp marketing videos is so important! Birch Trail Camp for Girls just released their new 2015 marketing video and it is AWESOME. [We're totally biased, of course, because we were involved in the production of the video but even if we weren't we'd still LOVE it.] BTC's director, Gabe Chernov, came to me this past winter and said that he'd like to be the one to create the video that I've been talking about in so many ...

Every time I visit Kohai I am moved by what a great relationship there are between the teachers and these kids with autism spectrum disorder. I have heard great stories from many of the parents of these kids about how much their family has changed because of Kohai.

I'm so grateful to Jamieson-Hilts for all they did for my business insurance. I work in an unusual industry and Ron Lapointe from J-H went above and beyond my expectations to help me find the right package. I've also had the folks responsible for personal insurance work on quotes for me. They were so helpful and you can tell that they are all about relationships and that they truly want to look after their clients.

Kamarah Tree Farms is contracted to install shade trees for the City of Woodstock. When they were at our house they cut our cable and didn't even tell me when I was out asking them questions about taking care of the tree. I found, later that afternoon, a yellow paper in my mailbox telling me that the cable was cut. That they keep a bunch of these photocopied sheets in the cab of the truck to drop in a mailbox and skulk off says to me that this happens quite often. Dealing with them has been very frustrating. I can't believe that they didn't tell me immediately that they cut the cable. Cable Internet is essential to being able to operate my business. When I called the office to ask why they didn't do a "locate" on our property the woman I spoke to said that they used maps that the city provided which are "not very accurate". She went on to say that she is unable to locate cable (but can find gas, water and phone). I have no idea why they can't call Rogers, who is perfectly capable of finding their own cable, and have them mark it. Her attitude on the phone was: oops, we did everything we could. What I will say in their favour is that they did the install and cleaned everything up well.

The gang at PC Options has always been great to me: they have ordered in weird pieces for me, let me try new RAM (to see if that was the problem) before I bought it, etc. They have been wonderful at helping me with my Macs, even though that's not their main business. I think this is, by far, the best PC store in town.
