Our Kids Camp Expo has been the #1 must-attend event for more than a decade for families considering camps and kids’ programs.
Connect in person with families actively researching their summer and after-school options. Amplify your exposure, build your brand, and boost your registrations—all in one day.
“Loved it! Always a busy and fantastic time! We get quality leads and valuable time with our demographic.”
Expo attendees often actively search for options which enable them to register within two to six weeks. In fact, more than 60% of expo attendees will have already begun their search on OurKids.net or Camps.ca. Many are eager to meet you, speak with your staff, and understand how your programming fits in with what they’re looking for.
“We’ve really been exposed to alot more camps than we ever thought possible. It’s really nice not to have to go and travel to see them all. Even researching online, this way [at the Expo] you really get to meet with those running them, and get a real feel for them.”
Your participation is not limited to the in-person expo. You’ll also be part of a comprehensive marketing campaign spanning digital, mobile, social, and local platforms.
Each exhibitor receives a complimentary pre- and post-event digital campaign valued at $800 —powerfully promoting your organization and telling highly targeted families about your expo-specific offers. You’ll receive:
Parents really want to know who they are entrusting their kids and teens with and relish the chance to meet you. This is your chance to blow them away and sign them up on the spot!
Since the vast majority of camp and program registration decisions happen in early spring, the Camp Expo is designed to generate interest so you can fill your email list and funnels and either convert them immediately or at a later date.
The best counsellors and camp leaders were often campers themselves. The new Work at Camp Corner will promote the benefits of a career in camp. Teens and young adults will hear from young staff about why they chose to work at camps, and from recruitment professionals about the proven value working at camps adds to their resumes.
You can identify your camp or program as “hiring,” so potential job seekers can submit their resumé or engage personally with your staff.
We were able to engage with families interested in our March Break and Summer Camps as well as our music education curriculum. Our numbers this summer increased, and sales were made at the Expo itself! An important event to maintain awareness and educate parents about our unique programming
Camp Muskoka’s continued growth is in part thanks to the campers who find us through Our Kids online, in print, and at the camp expo. We would never hesitate to recommend Our Kids.
