"CampBrain Review"

Comments: I LOVE CampBrain. Cannot say enough good things about it. It made life so much easier, both as an admin but also as a user. The software is easy to use, and any time I had trouble their support team made it so easy. We loved it so much that we expanded from using one portion (the regular CampBrain registration) to adding the Conference Centre portion as well. If there were other modules appropriate to our work I would add those in a heart beat too without looking at other options.

Pros: This program is INCREDIBLY easy to use and very intuitive. It is VERY flexible and you can almost always accomplish what you want with it. CampBrain's support team is also amazing, very quick to respond and no matter what I asked for help with they found a way to help me accomplish it. Setting up a program/registration is very easy, having people complete a registration is very easy, and collecting the information you need through reports is very easy. They include options to clone, or save items so that you aren't always starting from scratch again. I cannot say enough good things about CampBrain!

Cons: CampBrain is always improving, adding new features, so if there is anything they don't have currently I assume they are working to add it. Adding items to be sold as part of our registration (i.e. adding a hoodie to a child's registration) was a little bit messy on the back end but still totally doable.

"Camp Brain works for camps"

Comments: I have had a very positive working relationship with the Camp Brain software and the Camp Brain team.

Pros: The best aspect of Camp Brain is their fantastic support team. No software is perfect and no end-user is all-knowing. The ease of contacting their team with one phone call and getting help is priceless.

Cons: I have worked with Camp Brain software for 6+ years. In that time, there have been features that I needed/wanted that were not present. However, the development team at Camp Brain has worked and filled almost all the gaps I saw and others that I was not aware of. The primary element that I would like to see more development is a specific transportation module. The toll sexist to manage our transportation now, but they could be more straightforward.

"Camp Brain review"

Pros: What I like most about Camp Brain is the look. I also like the ability to click on a reservation and get more details.

Cons: Camp Brain frustrates me a lot. The thing that bothers me the most is going from one month to another. There is no flow. Also, that you cannot change your week to start on Sunday like a traditional calendar. I do not like that there is not an option to make a room/meeting space clean (ready) or dirty. We have to use a google document for that. Overall the software is laggy and needs major work.

"Excellent for Group reservations for conference center. I struggle with indiv. "camper" registration"

Comments: Keeps me organized and easily generates the reports and invoices that I need.

Pros: Note: I am on the desktop version. For group reservations, it is efficient. Easy to look up past retreats. Tech support is great. Nice features to forms. Easy customization. Creates invoices and contracts and lots of reports. I am happy with it.

Cons: For the few times I need to register individuals, the "Camper" side is frustrating. It may be that I haven't used it enough to truly learn it. And it is odd as this software is mainly designed for camps and camper registration. But I find I cannot find history on campers other than general info. Charges all appear on same invoice, even once paid, making invoices confusing for my older clientele. Some of the navigation features for moving through the pages are frustrating and not intuitive. Minor things: when I enter a payment, it would be nice to have the box to indicate "deposit received" or "paid in full" on that payment screen. I have to remember to navigate to the group's landing page and make that update. Often I forget and then I generate reports that a group hasn't paid when they have. This is the only camp software I have used, but I have few complaints of substance. I did not set up this software.

"Review of CampBrain "

Comments: Campbrain keeps all of our information and calendar organized in one place. it has become the main software we run our operations off of.

Pros: It pretty much does everything which is nice to have all of the information that is needed to do anything all in one place. with that being said it is still fairly easy to navigate and operate the software even though it does so much. It has the capability to run any report you could want to have and in many different ranges.

Cons: It has the capability to send out email information to groups of contacts that are in the system, but it doesn't have the option to send that same information in a text, even though it has that information in the system.
