ACTIVE NETWORK IS GREAT!

We saved probably $2,000 in man hours the first summer we used it. Now that everything is setup we going to save even more money. Also out accountants really like the way the money is handled and it improved out audit scores. Which was really nice!

Pros

Our team liked that the software is designed for camps programs. So many programs are trying to sell you something that was designed to register college students, or volunteers for company out reach days. ACTIVE knows camps and there support people know camps so they are able to really meet our needs as large camping programs.

Cons

The pop up adds have bothered some of our customers. Active was AMAZING to remove the request for camp insurance because it did not work with our program. This was more than I could have hoped for. They have always done what they say they will do. Also the fee is low so I can't complain to much...

SPoT Loves Active Camps

Secure payments and mobile friendliness sealed the deal.

Pros

Mobile friendliness was a huge feature that we needed for our camp software. Active allowed us to be mobile friendly right out of the box.

Cons

The email section would benefit from a mail to non-openers after a campaign has been sent.

Effective Solution

Pros

This software is a big step up from our previous camp and class management system. The financial reporting feature is especially helpful because you can customize reports and pull income by GL code for your accountant. The waitlist feature is a lifesaver - no more paper waitlists!

Cons

I wish that the email history on customer pages actually included ALL the emails sent to an individual/family. They are improving but I've found quite a few bugs since using this system.

ACTIVE Camps ROCKS!

Pros

It is very user-friendly. When I took over this organization, I was given no instructions on how anything worked. ACTIVE Camps was easy to self-learn!

Cons

There is no survey feature to send to parents of participants.

Active Camps

Pros

Once you learn it, it's easy to maneuver around and help customers with their registrations. Transferring in and out of classes is easy. Email is easy.

Cons

The registration process was not as user-friendly as it could be for customers. Many customers put their own names in where their student's (registrant) name should be. That was by far my biggest customer-service issue.

The Active Network camps registration system

Great experience. Outstanding customer service.

Pros

Easy to learn how to set up and easy to manage

Cons

It took a couple years to get the financial reports to match the data we needed. The problem was solved and the system now works perfectly.

Helpful but could offer more

Would be helpful if I could form reports needed. Also needs to be more user friendly for clients. We continue to hear that when navigating the registration the directions are not always clear.

Pros

After working with Active Works for three years it has become easy and efficient to use. Finally able to cut back on paperwork.

Cons

Not easy to extrapolate information from client data submitted.

Camp + Class Manager, my favorite co-worker

I have been with active for over 12 years, I love their customer service, their software, and their dedication to bringing healthy lifestyles to people all over. It's a wonderful company.

Pros

I like that once the initial set up is done, I can update everything myself. I love the ease of being able to change things on the fly, pull reports, and see the data I need.

Cons

I have a hard time when reconciling the finances at the end, but that could be user error as well.

ActiveNet's Camp and Class Manager

The greatest benefit of Camp and Class Manager is how our campers' parents and guardians can use their "device of choice" (the cell phone) to register their kids. The second greatest is how the system enables us to create and manage our own registration procedure. We are not computer wizards, and this application has been carefully designed so we can "build it ourselves."

Pros

Our church summer camp found this application very suitable to its needs and those of our campers. Lots of flexibility (but not too much) in the set-up. Very few parents and guardians had difficulty with the procedure. It also has permitted us to create the reports which we and our staff need to keep track of campers' dietary, supervision, and medical requirements.

Cons

I have no difficulties with the software.

Good tool for allowing online registration, having reports, but a bit pricey.

Pros

The ability to have online registration for events almost immediately. I've found the reports on financials and sign ups helpful as well. They also try and get extra signups for our events.

Cons

The signup process for attendees isn't the smoothest process in this day and age. It's also pretty expensive to have them process your payments.

Used for summer arts camps

It was much easier for our customers to use than our previous software. It helped cut down on our in office traffic for sure.

Pros

The customer side of the website was user friendly. It was easy to talk parents through who called in needing assistance.

Cons

Not all of the reports had what we needed. Also, not all reports exported into excel in a clean format.

The ACTIVE network has been such a great help for online registration for our church summer camps.

Pros

The registration reports are easy to run and informative.
Registrants receive automated confirmation emails with the required paperwork for them to print, complete and upload right to their family portal.
We can send group email reminders with the click of a button.

Cons

We run two summer camp programs in different states, and need to log in and out to go between the programs. I wish we could "toggle" between the two camps.
