Camp de Bennville Pines Connection Fall 2007/Spring 2008

The Camp de Benneville Pines Connection was a semi-annual tabloid style newspaper with a circulation of 4,500. Each issue contained articles of interest to campers, supporters, and donors, a 9-month calendar, registration forms and advertisements for upcoming events. I designed 6 issues, writing many of the articles, editing the others, and creating copy and art for most of the advertisements.

Advertisement for Jr High Summer Camp 2009

Advertisements for upcoming camps and events were included in each issue of the de Benneville Connection. I designed the advertisements. At times I was required to incorporate art provided by an outside group, but often I created the art, the copy and the design for each advertisement. I went on to create fliers and online registration forms from this copy. This ad for the 2009 Jr High Summer camp appeared in the Spring/Summer 2009 Connection.

Art Camp 2010 Pre-registration flier

Fliers and registration forms for mailing to campers were created using the designs from the newspaper. Forms allowing campers to register online using PayPal buttons were created and included in the camp's web site. Click the link to view the Art Camp 2010 Pre-registration form in .pdf format.

Sr High Winter 2009 Camper Packet

After registration, campers were sent email confirmations and an 8-page packet of information that included a what-to-bring list, directions to the facility, arrival and departure times, emergency contact and health forms, and information about camp policies. I developed the forms and information pages for over 10 events each year for 5 years. Click the link to see the Sr High Winter 2009 Camper Packet

Yoga Retreat Booklet 2009

Event schedules and booklets were created for special camp events. Photographs of workshop leaders, biographical information, and descriptions of the seminar or activity would be included. The booklets were given to each camper upon arrival to carry with them during the event and to take home as a remembrance. An online reservation system for massages and extra services were also created for two events each year. Click the link to download the Yoga Retreat 2009 booklet.
