Social Media Tips
Use whatever social media platform is popular with your audience. Parents and grandparents use Facebook and Instagram. Teens flock to Instagram and Snapchat. Visit our Facebook pages (every location has one), share our posts, or download our graphics and repost them yourself (just tag the camp or camps you want to highlight). Be sure to link back to @umcamping.org.
The most powerful promotional tool is the personal story of a life changed through the camping ministry. We’d love to hear your story. If you post them, share them with us by tagging us (type “@” followed by the name of the site and it should pop up as an option to tag). Or email your story (write it up or make a short video on your smartphone) to email@example.com. With your permission we’ll share it either anonymously or with your name.

Flashlight Faith is a free special mini-camping program held at your faith community. We bring activities, stories and camp-style food (either a meal or snack depending on the situation). There’s something for everyone at camp – from the very young to those in their “golden years.” So find a time where everyone can participate and invite us out. We’d love to bring you our message at a weeknight dinner, a Sunday afternoon picnic, during Sunday School or worship. We’ll make it work for you! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you’ve scheduled your event, use these materials to promote it and bring in a big crowd to share the joy of camping!
“Thank both for coming and doing the program today! It was just great! I am hoping we can increase our involvement in local camps! — Tracy Kramer, Christian Education Director, Commerce UMC
