Camp Registration and Planning Can Be as Fun as Camp – Really!


If you’re a volunteer or staff member tasked with camp registration and organizing youth camps, you’ve got a big job. Not only do you have to help coordinate all of the logistics to make camp run smoothly, but you’re in charge of registering a whole bunch of kids! That means you have to collect pertinent contact information, assign the kids to their appropriate cabin, sign them up for activities, and even collect food allergy information for the cafeteria.

Wait, but isn’t camp supposed to be fun?

You may not think so after going through a few registration rounds with campers. That’s why, here at Wufoo, we decided to make your life easier by creating online template forms specifically for camp registration. After all, we loved camp, and we want to make sure you enjoy the experience, even if you’re not the camper.

A camp registration form for everyone

To capture online camp registrations, embed our super-handy Camp Registration Form into your website. You can also email it out to participants–either way, it’s already created for you. You can customize the form if you’d like to add additional fields, but it doesn’t require any programming! With Wufoo’s Drag ‘n Drop capability, you easily add fields to your form. Use this form for a variety of camps. It works beautifully for day camps, overnight camps, adventure camps, music camps, or art camps.

Campout registration

Perhaps the type of camp you run doesn’t involve cabins and archery outings…it’s a more “portable” type of camp. A campout. We think that’s a super fun way to get families together and arrange activities! Use our Campout Registration Form to collect information from all of the attendees. Find out how many campers are coming, if they’ll be staying in a RV or tent, and even collect their T-shirt sizes if you’re commemorating the campout with some branded clothing!

Event forms: Map included!

If your camp for kids (or maybe it’s a camp for adults–totally cool) involves an event of some sort, send out a separate registration form specifically for the event. Perhaps your camp concludes with a talent show, or you’re hosting a community-wide fundraiser as part of the camp. Whatever the purpose, you’ll need to make sure that people can sign up, and, most importantly, that they know how to get there! Use our Event Registration Form to provide details, show people the location on a map, and collect their contact info.

Keep yourself–the camp registration planner–organized

We’re 100% positive that campers and parents will love the convenience of our online camp registration forms, but we haven’t forgotten the fact that you, the camp organizer, need a way to keep yourself organized. For that specific purpose, we created the Event Planner Form. Use it to keep track of the various camp activities you’re planning. File the events based on their date, and add specific requirements the event will need, such as staffing needs or catering details.

Happy campers all around

We hope that your reaction to Wufoo’s intuitive and snappy camp registration process includes some dancing and jumping up and down. Don’t make your co-workers jealous, though! Wufoo has tools for everyone in a team to use. Assign users, set permissions, and give everyone on your camp-coordinating team the ability to create awesome forms through Wufoo. Our User Management portal is designed for all the members in your group, so share the love!

Let your camp’s brand shine through

Your camp probably has a special look, right? Maybe it’s a snazzy logo with a campfire icon, or perhaps the logo has a long history from its original founders. Regardless of the origin, we’re guessing you’d love to have your branding shine through on all of the camp registration and online forms you use. In Wufoo’s Theme Designer, you can apply your camp’s colors, logo, and theme, so that every piece of communication you send out to parents and campers includes your special look.

Still curious how Wufoo works?

Wufoo is an easy-to-use online tool that allows anyone to create and build online forms–no coding or programming required. And Wufoo hosts and stores everything, so you don’t have to worry about where your forms or data will live.

You can completely customize the look and feel of your forms using our Theme Designer by choosing colors to fit your brand or theme, as well as adding your company’s logo or your wedding colors to your forms. You can even use one of almost 300 form templates in our Form Gallery to jump start creating your forms, or look at our Examples to see how you can use Wufoo in your company.

Wufoo partners and works with loads of other applications, allowing you to accept data and information through your forms and send it other applications that your company uses. We have integrations with applications like MailChimp, Dropbox, Zapier, Salesforce, WordPress, and more.
