Through his experience as a staff member at an NCAA Division 1 University, Chris Chattin saw the challenges from dealing with thousands of pieces of paperwork, scattered payments, and complicated records. He felt there was a better way to manage camp administration, which is why he founded NetCamps.

Clients who sign up for NetCamps are given a free website with hosting and domain registration included at no charge. Clients are able to customize their website with logos, colors, and other branded materials. To help clients promote their website, NetCamps integrates with social media networks such as Facebook and Twitter. If the client already has an existing website, NetCamps integrates its registration forms seamlessly with the existing website.

NetCamps manages the entire registration process online, including sign up forms, payments, and liability waivers. Personal information is kept private, encrypted and backed up daily. NetCamps can track registration in real time, send reminder emails, and allow clients to easily export registration data to a spreadsheet. The website also provides secure payment processing and covers the cost of security scans, merchant account setup, and monthly fees.

What differentiates NetCamps from its competitors is that the system is less expensive, money flows directly to the coach, and it allows camp organizers to easily make changes to their custom website. Also, no long-term contracts are required for coaches who sign up for NetCamps. Finally, if your camp is free, NetCamps provides its services at no cost.

Through streamlining the administrative tasks of organizing a camp, NetCamps ultimately allows coaches and event organizers to spend more time running the camp and improving their program. Their list of clients – or rather, list of “happy campers” – includes Axiom, Boise State University and NFL camps Gridiron Dreams and PatrickPeterson’s Skills Camp.
