Create a Business Plan
From The Business of Camp, Ann Sheets and Dave Thoensen (release date February 2014)
Developing a business plan will force you, as the camp owner or director, to take an objective, unemotional look at your camp in its entirety. Often new or prospective camp owners and directors remember all the fun, the relationships, and excitement of attending camp as a child, overlooking the fact that operating a camp is much, much more.
Having a well- thought-out business plan can provide on-ongoing guidance as the camp is developed, as well as providing the basis for a financial plan that potential lenders or investors can use in evaluating your business.

- Cover Sheet

- Operations, Facilities, and Equipment
- Risk Management
