Practical Camp Marketing

Have you heard all the best camp marketing theories and ideas and STILL can't implement them at your camp? At the EPIC Winter Retreat, we're going to invest time into helping each Camp Pro tell his or her own (or their camp's) story. 

Whether you are thinking about ways to get more kids to your camp program or a method for advancing at your current organization or finding a great job in outdoor recreation, the tools that Travis and Beth Allison will walk you through at the retreat will leave you feeling much more confident in your ability to communicate the value of an outdoor, camp community.

The EPIC Winter Retreat is a not to be missed event!  Join us for a wonderful three days of learning, networking and gaining new insights from each other and our invited experts.  Travis and Beth Allison will join us to both instruct on the most current issues for camp professionals and participate in thoughtful discussions about the camping industry and our careers in youth development.  All are welcome!  We will cook together, take hikes, share our favorite camp activities, forge new friendships and strengthen existing bonds.

The retreat will be held at breathtaking Camp Merrie-Woode in Sapphire, NC conveniently close to Asheville.  We will start at 5:00pm on Thursday, December 8 and conclude at 2:00pm on Saturday, December 10.  Dress comfortably, this is a very casual affair.  Be prepared to share you big ideas as we have deep conversations and lots of lateral learning.

Space is limited.  RSVP by December 1, 2016.
