Summer Camp Directors: Reminder To Update Your Camp’s Listing

It is time to plan for the summer of 2017 at camp and update your listing on the Camp Channel.

Camp directors are encouraged to update your camp’s listing(s) on the Camp Channel with respect to any time sensitive information which might be different for next year such as dates, rates, and other programming changes. Click on the “Camp Directors” button in order to submit any modifications. You are welcome to update your information as often as necessary.

For more information about why it is a good idea to create a comprehensive and organized plan to update as much information as possible about your camp or program which resides on the internet, please read the following article:

Camp Directors: Keeping Your Web Listings Current

If you are a prospective camper or parent seeking a summer camp for the summer of 2017 please keep in mind that many camps have yet to provide their updated information for next summer. It is always recommended that you contact a summer camp directly for the most up to date and accurate information.

New Feature: Lightbox for Photos

A new tool has been recently installed to allow visitors to more effectively look at photos and other multi-media elements housed within camp listings and search results.

The lightbox photo interface is a more elegant system to display photos; helping to minimize viewer distraction by isolating the target image from other elements which may appear within the viewer’s display. ¬†Upon clicking a smaller “thumbnail” photo, a larger full-sized version of the image is presented; overlayed & centered upon an opaque background — providing an optimal contrast to facilitate an improved focus of attention in regard to the photo content.

Viewing photos on a mobile device via lightbox is now more user friendly than our previous system – which had relied upon opening a new browser popup window to display multi-media.

Please note: it is necessary to have JavaScript activated within your web browser in order to engage and fully experience the lightbox interface and related effects.
