Summer Camp Email Marketing Olympics

The Email Olympics

Camper Machine is hosting the Summer Camp Email Marketing Olympics (Applause). A digital special event for the email creators at every summer camp. It’s time to connect & celebrate your email influence. Emails are the main way that you share information and nurture the relationships that drive your camp’s business.

There 15 ways to win some sweet prizes. Gold, Silver and Bronze winners will be awarded for 5 different audience segments. Camper Machine will also share some standard best practices to participants as an additional bonus.

Audience Segments

Most summer camps have the same set of audience segments. The messages sent to these different groups are usually very distinct. Each Email Olympics submission must be designated as primarily written for one of these 5 categories:

  • Enrolled Families
  • Prospective Families (Leads)
  • Staff
  • Alumni
  • Donors

Each camp pro can submit 3 entries to the Email Olympics. Think about each of your audiences for your best chance of medaling.

How To Enter

Submit your entry by following these simple steps:

  • Take a Screenshot or Screencast (if it’s fancy) of your email.
  • Complete the submission form with additional detail on your email campaign. Open & click rates are great, but tell us the story behind the email too.
  • Choose the most appropriate category for your submission.

That’s it. Super simple. You’ll receive an automatic email confirming your submission. Don’t wait to enter, the deadline for submissions is November 22nd.
