The Summer Camps industry is tied closely to overall economic indicators, such as per capita disposable income, population growth and leisure time. Disposable income has grown since 2010 as unemployment has fallen, contributing to industry revenue gains. In the coming years, the industry is expected to experience a marginal increase in the number of children and adolescents it serves, rapidly improving expenditure on recreational activities and marginal gains in sports participation. At the same time, competition from day camps is projected to increase, especially from programs offering a niche focus on a sport or educational avenue.
This industry includes overnight recreational and instructional camps for adults and children. Camps may have themes, such as hunting, acting or academics, and the industry includes outdoor adventure retreats. Camps generally provide accommodations and other amenities, such as cabins, fixed campsites, food services, recreational facilities and equipment, and organized activities. Campgrounds and instructional day camps are excluded.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
