If you already run a summer camp, smartening up your existing property or adding new activities can also help you stay ahead of the competition when it comes to capturing lucrative campers’ dollars.

The bevy of beautiful barns for equine programs, the myriad of varietal structures that you can source all in one place such as outdoor living structures, playsets, chicken coops and buildings for other storage needs can all add fabulous experiences for the campers and build your bottom line.

Time wasted does cost money. Whether you subject your building plans to weather delays and budget overruns by building onsite, purchase structures that require constant maintenance due to use of the wrong materials or poor construction and thus involve additional labor every Spring, selecting the right structure that is properly crafted and well designed to fit form and function matters.

Large modular and prefab companies can provide complementary colored and designed buildings that can enhance the visual appeal of your property while providing perfect functionality. Make sure you leverage the discounts available when you make multiple purchases at the same vendor for more cost savings.

You can implement whatever individual design choices you can imagine as the manufacturer already has on hand a myriad of materials from which you can choose. Ideas include utilizing different colored structures for different purposes to highlight their activity: yellow sided chicken coops; white and blue cabanas and pavilions by the pool; red barns for the horses.

Kids love bright colors, and from swing sets to shady pavilions you have the chance to engage their minds with savvy designs and smart setup.

Buildings can be multi-functional and evoke a homestead feel, with barns to house all creatures great and small under one big roof. The options truly are endless.

Naturally summer camp set up costs do require a considerable capital expense so search for a company that will provide financing and can also guarantee a final price so you can stay on budget.

When you collaborate with a company that is staffed by folks that have specialty knowledge across the animal kingdom and can also provide practical solutions for the multiple gathering and living areas within your summer camp compound, then you take advantage of their wealth of experience that further saves you money, as it will help you avoid poor decision-making.

Summer camps are big business and financial rewards can be significant. Careful planning is essential for success. If you buy the buildings from multiple sources you will be spending a lot of time shopping around.

If you have one building company bid the entire project on site, their crew size may be limited which means they will have to work around the property, one building at a time. Material ordering and supply/delivery will be hectic and hard to oversee and construction is notoriously noisy and leaves a mess and the construction team may not have the experience in all aspects or types of buildings.

How much quicker, easier and efficient would it be to have an ‘instant’ summer camp setup and ready to go with buildings delivered over the road, placed and set up in days versus months? It’s not too late to develop your plans for the forthcoming season.

Do your homework and ensure the company you choose offers a transparent purchase process you can trust, with testimonials, defined warranties and workable contracts with clear, concise language you can understand. Look at both quality and price and be certain to compare ‘apples to apples.’

In business, your success often depends on the construction companies’ proven success. Choose wisely!
