Camp and conference center personnel, who identified "business and financial information" as one of their most challenging needs, provided figures on budgets, enrollments, weekly fees, and revenues and expenses by category in late 2005. Those data are summarized here!

Would you have guessed that:

  • New England resident camps gross three times the revenue of their counterparts in the Mid West while their weekly fee is slightly more than twice the Mid America fee?
  • Mid Atlantic day camps gross ten times the revenue of their counterparts in the south. The Mid Atlantic weekly fee is 2.7 times higher than those in the South?
  • Expense for year-round and seasonal staffing comprises more than 54 percent of a day camp budget but only 40 percent of a resident camp budget?
  • Thirteen percent of day camps lost money in 2005, and 25 percent of resident camps were in the red?
  • Seventeen percent of resident camps and 20 percent of day camps had a level of profitability greater than $100K?

Here is the latest information for day camps across the U.S.
