FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

INFORMATION FOR CAMPS

Q: How do I get started?

A: Register your camp. Once you validate your free account, you’ll be able to scan and search through the available staff applicants. You can check out their skills, locations, etc. You’ll then be given the opportunity to upgrade to a premium membership.

Q: What does a premium membership get me?

A: A premium (paid) membership allows you to see full staff profiles, including contact information, and a whole lot more information on each candidate. Then you can move forward with your hiring process on your own terms. Also, shortly you will be able to post jobs for potential staff to search through.

Pricing model: Our annual subscription fee is $500 for up to 10 hires, then it’s just $50/hire thereafter. Once you’ve made a hire, we ask that you self-report this through a link in your dashboard. This helps everyone since it will keep the database as up-to-date as possible. We’re also asking the staff to do the same.

Q: Why should I provide a camp profile and specific job listings?

A: This information will allow staff members who have created a profile to learn about your camp and available jobs. If they think your camp may be a good fit for them, they can choose to contact you.

Q: Why is CampGig better than the other sites out there?

A: CampGig is designed to be the most useful matching/search tool for camps and camp staff.  Our site offers detailed, multimedia profiles, a great search engine, and the ability to save favorite staff and searches for the future.

To keep things equitable, if we feel there are too many camps on our system, we will instate a waitlist, not allowing more camps to join until more staff have uploaded profiles.

We will also work continuously to improve our site, offering state-of-the-art search techniques, and modern dynamic staff profiles. We’ll also want to learn from you. Periodically, we will send out surveys on your experience with us, we hope you’ll engage interactive approach and provide your feedback in order to help us provide the best camp/job search option available!

INFORMATION FOR STAFF

Q: How do I get started?

A: Simply register for a free staff account. Then you’ll be able to create a detailed profile, including your availability, skills, photos, video, and experience. Tell camps all about why they should hire you! Then sit back and let camps contact you. Enjoy the process, the more you put in, the more you’ll get out – promise!

Also, we will shortly be launching our job board. Once you’ve created your profile you will be able to search the database of jobs listed by our camps and find the right fit for you.

Q: When should I sign up or update my profile?

A: As soon as possible! Camps generally start hiring in October for the following summer. The sooner you get your information out there, the better your chances are to have your CampGig locked in months in advance!

Q: What should I put in my profile?

A: Anything that you think will show off your qualifications and general awesomeness! Be sure to fully communicate your skills and past experience, but also include photos and video to make your profile memorable – these are a MUST!

This site was started by camp owners, and we remember the best videos years after some of our favorite staff were hired. Good photos include you working with kids or showing off your skills. The best profile videos are fun, action-packed, a bit quirky, and tell camps why they should hire you.
