You can CHANGE the text in your Featured Camp Listing ANY TIME, or REPLACE or MOVE your Banner Ad up to 5 times per calendar year.
PAYMENT: You can pay online through our easy and secure PayPal portal -- you do not need a PayPal account, you can pay with any major credit or debit card.
YOU CAN RESERVE A SPOT NOW. You can reserve an ad space BEFORE your ad is ready to post. In other words, as soon as you submit your order and payment, we will reserve your spot for that page. You can then submit your finished ad to us as soon as it is ready.
If you don't have time or just need help creating your master ad, we have a creative team that will do your ad for you for an additional $45. You just need to provide the creative materials, ie. ad text, camp logo, photo, etc. OR we can collect the content from your website, if you prefer.
For the ads we create, we will email you the ad(s) for approval before we post them. You will own the ad once it is done, so you can use it anywhere you'd like. Make sure you 'own' any images you use, and have the 'rights' to use anyone's pic.

If you need us to create your ad, there is a space to order that on the form, too.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Can we change our Banner Ad or Featured Camp Listing during the season?
Can we advertise more than one camp in the same Banner Ad?
Sure. But, remember the Directories are organized by State, and there can be only one linked web address when someone clicks.
What happens if all available slots for camp ads have been filled?
Once the ad slots for a page have been filled, we will form a waiting list in the order requests are received.
What about advertising on the Home, Directory, and Campguide pages?
We're thinking about releasing those pages for camp ads later in the season -- current advertisers will have first crack at booking those pages when/if they become available.
SET-UP SPECS FOR ALL CAMP BANNER ADS
Image File Formats: we can pretty much handle anything: jpg, png, gif or tif would be the best. RGB (of course). If needed, we wil optimize image files for fast loading and web viewing.
