They say first impressions are pretty significant. The first day at a new job can really set the tone for what you think of that company. You can probably remember the first time you met your spouse or a significant person in your life. Most of us can tell if a hotel is a nice place to stay as soon as we walk in the lobby. Churches put a HUGE effort into “first impressions” teams like the parking volunteers or greeters.
First impressions can set the tone for the entirety of an event or a season. It’s May – which means we are about to enter into one of the best seasons EVER — Hellooooo Summer! Your kids have been working incredibly hard at school over the last several months. They’ve had good days, bad days, and everything in between. The last thing you want is for their first week off to be just ‘meh’. They deserve to have the best summer imaginable, and we’ve got just the thing to help them get a great first impression of Summer 2019!
Something New In The Carolinas
Kickstart your kid’s summer by sending them to a spectacular experience they’ll talk about all summer long! This year we’re launching a BRAND NEW one-week overnight camp at Gardner-Webb University in Boiling Springs, NC. While 2019 may be our first summer doing overnight camp in the Carolinas, we’re no stranger to great camp experiences. Created by the founder of Chick-fil-A in 1984, we’ve been doing overnight camps for over 30 years now. When we say a summer at WinShape is memory-making, adventure-taking, life-changing awesomeness, we don’t take that lightly. But don’t take our word for it, let’s look at the numbers!
History of Excellent Experiences
After camp was over last summer, we surveyed over 1,000 of our overnight camp families about their camp experience. Just as you would expect of any survey, parents were asked to rank various parts of their experience on a scale that included Excellent, Good, Fair, Poor. When rating their overall experience sending their camper to WinShape Camps, our overnight camps averaged 91% of parents rating their experience “Excellent”. But we all know that sometimes parents love something that kids, well, may find boring. That’s not the case at WinShape Camps. Remember the old slogan “Kid tested, mom approved?” 91% of our campers also had an “excellent” camp experience! We’re not just kid tested, we’re kid approved too!
Kickstart Your Kid’s Summer
So what makes families rate camp with such high level of excellence?! We have lots of data we could share with you, but ultimately it comes down to our desire for over-the-top intentionality, just as you’d expect of Chick-fil-A. And while we’re talking about first-impressions, we can’t forget to mention the awesome “Noodle Crew” that will be welcoming you as you drive onto campus. 🙂
A saying you hear often at Chick-fil-A is “taste it once and you’ll love it for life!” We believe the same is true of camp. That’s why we pay 50% of the cost for all first-time overnight campers!
Get your kid’s summer off to a great start, and make sure they don’t miss out on the summer of a lifetime! There are two weeks to choose from this year at WinShape Camps at Gardner-Webb, but space is limited, so don’t wait! Join us June 9th-14th, or if your kids are still in school that week, sign up for June 16th-21st! Not able to make it either of those weeks? Join us at one of day camps located all over the Carolinas!
