How it Works

Rusty Tent's simple interface allows you to easily input and keep track of information. Here we outline how to sign up and get going with Rusty Tent, as well as some of its features.

Fast and Easy Process

  1. You (the administrator) create an account.
  2. Purchase a Rusty Tent camp license.
  3. Create a schedule and users.
  4. Grant access to leaders and staff.
  5. Leaders input group information.
  6. Rusty Tent organizes and keeps track of information
  7. Your information is organized for you whenever you need it.

Users and Administrators

The camp administrator has a single account on www.rustytent.com, and can purchase and manage multiple Rusty Tent subscriptions for each of their camps. When you register a new camp on your Rusty Tent account, you will choose a unique subdomain which will point to your camp's Rusty Tent. (e.g. http://mycamp.rustytent.com) Your users are group leaders, who input their campers' information on your Rusty Tent.

All Your Data in One Place

Rusty Tent organizes the users' information so that you can print out documents such as class rosters and schedules. Your staff will know the amount of campers in their classes or sessions before the campers arrive.

Easy Enrollment Aggregation

Swim Tests

Don't waste a day of camp swim testing! Your leaders input their campers' swim test information to save both you and them time better spent on program activities. This also lets you know if the campers have prerequisites for aquatics classes and activities beforehand.

Scheduling

Manage your unique camp schedule, giving leaders and campers necessary information to enroll in certain classes or sessions. Rusty Tent organizes all scheduling information from yours and the leaders' input at once. You have the power to see the big picture and know which classes are filling up and which have less enrollment. Save scheduling headaches for everyone by using Rusty Tent's easy organization system!

Schedule Management

Pricing

Rusty Tent is an affordable option for your camp's administrative needs. Current scheduling software is overpriced and not suited to the unique needs of a summer camp. As we develop the system based on your needs, you will be able to add or remove additional modules to better match your budget. We keep the month-to-month costs at a bare minimum - to keep the service running - and are working hard to keep your costs as low as possible. Here is the breakdown of our simple pricing model:

3 Year License (per camp): $1,500

Monthly: $5.00 plus $0.25 for every registered camper after the first 20 campers*
*in the currently active season

If you are not satisfied with Rusty Tent, we will refund your license fee within 30 days of your purchase- no questions asked!

Who uses Rusty Tent?

"The Rusty Tent program is a tremendous help to our Camping program. We were able to schedule our merit badge classes, have a idea about class size and be better prepared to serve our Scout campers. The Scout leaders loved it because it eliminated a lot of paperwork on their part."

BSA, Westmoreland-Fayette Council

Security

The security of your camp and especially that of your campers is very important. Your camp's profile and information are hosted by a reliable application server. This server model allows for powerful scaling as more users access your Rusty Tent application and for traffic growth on your Rusty Tent. Financial information is stored on separate, highly secure servers following Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards. When you save or input your payment information, it is always processed safely and stored securely. Please see Privacy Policy for more information.
