Streamlining Summer Programs: Ebook & Webinar Video!

Strategies to Simplify Summer Programs

For most nonprofits, summer programs are more than just a reliable revenue source: they’re one of the most effective ways you deliver your organization’s mission. The best camps build happy memories, instill positive values and help grow a new generation of supporters.

At Doubleknot, our goal is to minimize the administrative tasks of program management so you can focus on what really matters: delivering an excellent camp experience. So, we wrote an eBook called Seven Simple Strategies to Streamline Summer Programs, which offers strategies to make every aspect of camp administration—from communications to registration and all the way to check-in, check-out and end-of-season followups—easier for your families and more efficient for your staff.

Response to the eBook was so positive that we used it as the foundation for an educational webinar. We invite you to download the eBook or watch the video (or both!) and contact us at if you have any questions or suggestions.

New Summer Camp Reports for Group Signup Programs

We are pleased to release three new reports to help streamline summer camp management for group signup programs including scout camps:

  • All Session Events – Roster. For each session event/merit badge class in the selected session, this report displays the name of each registrant and information about their group.
  • All Session Events – Roster with Completion Requirements. For each session event/merit badge class in the selected session, this report displays the name of each registrant, group information and the course completion requirements assigned to the session event/merit badge class.
  • All Session Events By Group. This report displays each registrant’s session event/merit badge class schedule, organized by group/unit.

To display and print these reports, follow these steps in Event Management:
