“8 Small Busines Social Media Tips from the Pros” – a great resource for camps, too!

This morning, I took a break from sifting through the MANY emails about our new website (glad you’re all logging on and checking things out, by the way… I hope you like what you see!) to read this great little article from the Social Media Examiner on how to create an engaging social media page (be it Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube) for your small business — or in most of your cases, for your camp.

You know I’ve been harping on all of you to get into social networking more. Summer camp is built on young people. They’re your campers and they’re your staff. Chances are, they want to stay connected with you, and newsletters through the mail might not be the best way to reach this audience.

Social media can be a powerful tool to generate support for your camp. And it can be really easy. Feel free to contact me if you need any help!

We really do have lots of things to say.

Welcome to CCI/Canada’s brand new blog! Since we have so much to say, we thought we should create a space for communicating everything to you.

We’ve been doing all kinds of things to try to better connect with the world of Christian camping, both in Canada and worldwide. We started a Twitter account, we’re all over Facebook, and, if you’re a member you know that we send out a pretty sweet monthly newsletter. And even though our current website is not too shabby, we’re in the process of building a whole new one, which will be really interactive and easy to navigate!

I think one of the greatest benefits of membership with CCI/Canada is the opportunity to connect with others in the camp world. We truly are better together, which is why I’ve been bombarding everyone with CCI/Canada’s new social media tools. I really want to continue building on what is already such an awesome community. I’m hoping that everyone involved in camping ministry, including our valued members and supporters, will get involved by following this blog and our twitter, checking out our website, and liking our page on Facebook.  That’s how we’ll know who you are so we can start building relationships with all of you! If you don’t interact with us, we won’t be able to share resources with you and offer you our support.

So, what will this blog be about?

This blog will be a space where we can share interesting links, news and other resources with you. We’ll be able to keep you up to date on the happenings of CCI/Canada. And, most importantly, we’ll be able to connect with you in meaningful ways!

See you around, camp people!
