As camp directors, it’s your job to plan, direct and supervise all camp programs and staff and be sure to provide unique experiences and opportunities for campers. To help you with this all encompassing job, Camppage offers a wide array of resources for camp directors on our Camp Directors Buyer’s Guide.
Since the season is just beginning, let’s focus on some of the resources that might be useful to you now…
Do your campers need to have a little more fun in the sun this summer? Check out iZoom LLC, distributor of the Wahii WaterSlide, and create a waterpark on the camp lawn. At 75ft long x 12ft wide, the Wahii WaterSlide is the largest lawn slide on the market. Based on the “wahii waterfall slides” on the Fiji Islands, Wahii WaterSlides are durable and extremely slippery.
