A few years ago, as we started to use Facebook more with our summer camp staff, we decided we needed to have a social media policy for our summer camp. If you you like me to send you a copy, send me an email jennselke (AT) gmail (DOT) com. I am always interested in what others have come up with. Thanks to a recent article by Mashable, I found out that Chris Boudreaux, author of the upcoming book “Social Media Governance”, has assembled nearly 100 (and growning) social media policies on the book’s website. You can sort by various industries or by company. Still waiting to see recreation and summer camps on the list. You can order a free preview copy of Chris’ book Social Media Governance on his web site.
If you are just starting out creating your summer camp social media or social networking policies, this is a great place to start. Summer Camp’s tend to think they have cornered the market on trying to control the brand’s message when corporate America is as equally sensitive about their staff talking about their products online. What is your biggest fear when dealing with social media policies and your summer camp staff? Do you have a summer camp horror story?
