Make the Most of Celebrating
The new decade is turning out a little different than what anyone might have expected — but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun. Right now we could all use a little bit more good news and a reason to celebrate. If there’s one thing we know how to do at WinShape Camps, it’s how to celebrate! With recent school closings and social distancing practices, your campers may be feeling a little separated from all the things and the people they love. There are a couple of special events in the life of your camper that you may be trying to figure out how to make a little more special given the circumstances. We want to help!
If your camper’s birthday falls in between April and July 17th, we’ve got some exciting news!
During the summer whenever a camper or Summer Staff happens to have a birthday, something HUGE happens. Out of nowhere, things go from normal-level-camp-loud to above-normal-level-camp-loud as we bang on pots and pans to catch the attention of the entire WinShape Nation within ear-shot. Once we’ve got everyone’s attention, all the voices at camp join together in the most EPIC birthday song you’ve ever heard, appropriately named the Birthday Rap. We make a BIG DEAL about birthdays at camp.
We started thinking — maybe if WinShape celebrated your camper’s birthday this summer it might make it a little better. If you have a camper with a birthday in one of those months, we want to have some of our Summer Staff give you a face-to-face video call to celebrate your camper by reliving some camp memories AND of course with a Birthday Rap. The key is you can’t tell them it’s happening. It has to be a total surprise.
So how does it work?
📝 Request your camper’s birthday call with this form.
✅ We’ll confirm your request and send you information about the call.
🎈 Time to Party — Our team will give your camper a call at the scheduled time.
Birthdays are just one of the ways we want to give you a little help as you celebrate big-time.
Class of 2020
One of the toughest things to navigate for many of our camp families right now is those of you who have students in the class of 2020. They’re having to accept that they won’t get to spend their last few months in high school the way they thought. Who would have ever thought you’d be glad that schools out?!
We want to give you another way to celebrate your graduate!
If you have a former camper who was supposed to graduate this year, we want to feature them on our Instagram account. All you have to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the things listed below. We’ll reply to your email confirming when we’re going to share. Before you know it, you’ll see their beautiful face right on our Instagram page!
Things to include in your email:
📸: A few photos of your camper (we would ❤️ photos from camp)
📝: Their name, camp location they attended, and number of years they attended
👨👩👧👦: A word of encouragement from your family
Send that email to us as soon as you can and we’ll begin featuring graduates later this month.
We’re Just Getting Started
