In a world where free time is at a premium, Summer Camp allows parents of campers to easily answer the question "What is happening at my child's camp today?" Rather than sitting down at a computer and visiting multiple Websites in order to see the current weather, the latest photos, new videos and contact information for the camp, the Summer Camp app brings all of these things--and more--together in one easy-to-use, portable package.
From the main menu, multiple modules give a snapshot view of the latest events taking place at camp, including current weather conditions, Picasa photos, the latest Twitter post, the camp's Facebook feed and the camp blog. Clicking on most of these modules brings up additional information. Clicking a photo thumbnail, for example, brings up a larger image of the photo. Clicking a button on the weather module shows the current and five-day forecasts. Clicking a blog post loads the camp's blog in a browser window.
Summer Camp also contains important information for current and prospective campers, including 2012 camp dates, contact information (mailing address, phone numbers, and email addresses) and a link to Google Maps showing the camp's location.
Additional optional content includes:
-An easy in-app interface for accessing the camp's YouTube videos
-A media player which allows users to play camp songs and view each song's lyrics
-A Games section with a concentration-type card game
As a free app in the Google Play store, Summer Camp is a unique and engaging marketing tool designed for the camp's current clients (parents and campers), as well as the families of perspective future clients. During camp, it gives parents easy access to all of the latest media being produced by the camp, as well as all of the camp's contact information. During the school year, it allows campers to relive the magical experiences of the previous summer as they view camp pictures, watch videos, and listen to songs. Rather than merely _talking_ about summer camp with their friends, Summer Camp app users have anytime/anywhere access to all of the camp's media on their portable device, and are easily able to share the fun and excitement of the summer camp experience with their friends and family.
