Access the most recent budget and finance data for camps. Questions this year included cholarship information, discounts, marketing strategies used, revenue sources, weekly fees, expenditures, profitability, and more. For ease of application, there are two sets of findings: one for resident camps and one for day camps. Each set (resident/day includes:

  • Succinct narrative of the summary of findings
  • Contents page of all the break-outs for the data tables
  • Breakouts that include sponsorship,region, camper days, gross revenue, and profit margin
  • Appendix that provides information on the way the data were collected and analyzed

We suggest you start by reading the findings summary to get an overview of the data, then look at the more in-depth information provided in the tables. Coming later this spring will be specific "profiles" based on sponsorship (agency, religiously-affiliated, nonprofit, and private for profit) that will specifically highlight the budget-finance information in a couple of pages for just that type of camp.
