Summer camp photo software that delivers

Waldo has come to camp, and he’s packed his amazing photo technology in his trunk. Using facial recognition, Waldo finds photos of each camper and delivers them via text message to their families as soon as the photos are uploaded to the camp album.

Your campers are living the moment. You should be too. No more worried parent phone calls, wondering if their child is having a good time. No more haphazard photo coverage. Just pure delight, delivered directly to your families’ phones every day.

Camp Director at Camp Balcones Springs, Texas

“Having Waldo be a part of the Camp Balcones Springs summer program was an incredible addition. Our camper families no longer needed to scroll through thousands of pictures to find their children. Instead, they would wake up to pictures of their children having an incredible time! Not only did it make the lives our of camper families easier, it also helped our camp photographer, as the Waldo application allowed her to manage how many pictures she had taken of each camper! It created accountability inside our offices and as a direct result, we received fewer emails and calls from parents about campers who weren’t in pictures!”

"I love Waldo because it so simple. Not having to scroll through hundreds of camp photos to find the few you’re interested in is a total game changer! My only question is, “Why isn’t everyone using Waldo!?" This is one app that definitely made my life easier!"

“The Waldo team is responsive, customer-focused and fun. Most importantly, the Waldo (fundraising model) helped us reach our goal of $75,000 for our “Bless a Coach” fund … we are so excited to send those “blessings” to our Coaches (counselors), which goes toward their college expenses.
