Nannies from the Heart has the best nannies in Austin!
Camp Sloop lets you search by multiple criteria like themes, exact dates, gender, age, location and price. But best of all, unlike other Web sites and camp guides, you can download information for side-by-side comparisons, map your camps, “pin” camps to save them for future reference, and see which Facebook friends also are interested in your selections. Blog posts and profiles also give you a more in-depth look at many of the camps.
The site is the brainchild of Nannies from the Heart founder Rebecca D’Amico, who faced
the challenge of trying to find a good fit for a boy and girl of different ages and interests each year. “It was extremely frustrating,” she said. “I ended up with spreadsheets and all kinds of garbled notes on a calendar trying to see how I might find camps that fit both my kids while still giving me some space to work during the summer.”
Focus groups with families demonstrated the same level of frustration in planning for
camps, since camp Web sites often listed incomplete or outdated information and crucial material that was hard to find in one place.
Rebecca teamed up with another Rebecca—Rebecca Cole—to develop Camp Sloop, which has attracted thousands of registered users and camps.
“We had tons of positive feedback from parents,” Cole said. “Having all the pertinent information in one place that you can access easily when you log in again is a huge time saver.”
