Sports Discovery Camp
Brand Positioning + Promotion
In need of a way to promote their inaugural Hamilton camp year and boost camper registration, Sports Discovery Camp (SDC) trusted Kitestring to find a solution. With just a few weeks before camp kicked off, we developed a marketing campaign that would lean on SDC’s reputation with STEM Camp and put Sports Discovery Camp on the map.
We opted for a bright, engaging design using playful sports illustrations and an intriguing headline: ‘Not Your Average Sports Camp’. Highlighting the camp’s point of difference allowed us to tell a slightly different story, focusing on the kids who feel out of place at sports-specific camps, and instead giving them a supportive environment to learn.
With the visuals in place, we began implementing our marketing plan, including:
- Earned media on The Scott Radley Show, CHCH News and in the Hamilton Spectator
- Giveaways for Hamilton Tiger-Cats tickets, an interactive booth at their Family Day game and camp giveaways to 11 families who attended the game
- Improved social media content and periodic contests
- Community outreach to over 50 local businesses, churches and neighbourhood associations
Each of these tactics provided opportunities to connect with parents/guardians living within close proximity to the camp, resulting in increased registration and an increased presence in the Hamilton community. We can’t wait for next year!
