- First and foremost is the importance of video to summer camp marketing. Video marketing and summer camps are a match made in heaven and the camping industry figured this out before just about anyone else. So as individuals and as an industry summer camps are very experienced producers. They have decades of experience using video to communicate their values and our challenge is to bring them something new and fresh that delivers unlike anything they have tried in the past.
- The second challenge comes with the importance of clearly showing the unique personality of the camp. Ultimately viewers will want to know what makes this camp different from all the others and why that is good thing.
- The third challenge is that we are communicating to 2 very different audiences at the same time. Campers and camp parents. It is important for each to be fully engaged in the whole video and be able to understand the unique perspective that we are communicating to each.
In order to achieve this we took our system that we use on all videos to do an analysis of the goals, target audience, and strategies, but we adopted it to fit summer camps. Now we have a system to help us tackle the unique needs that summer camp video brings.
