This is nothing more than a sale problem.
Zig ZIglar says:
"People buy things when they want it more than they want the money it
costs. What you do is sell the need for the item, not the item itself."
Seems like if we apply that logic, we need to see why I need to bring my
troop to your camp. Why is your camp better than other camps? What does it
supply that the other camp won't. Hopefully, you've done that homework, and
can honestly make those comparisions.
As far as getting the word out, video presentations are hard to beat.
However, I've now started seeing some of the Minn family fishing resorts
with Web Pages, so maybe you might want to look at that and make sure your
camp has a good web page. That gets put into the system also for searches.
