How often are photos uploaded to the site?
Camps try their best to update the photos on site on a daily basis. However, this will vary depending on the camp's availability. Please continue to check the site for updates.
Can I make the pictures bigger?
Yes. Click on the 'zoom' button while you are viewing any set of thumbnail pictures (4 to a page) and the picture will become larger.
Can I share this site with others?
Yes! Please share the camp experience with whomever you see fit. You may send:
(1) a picture,
(2) your personal photo album or
(3) invite others to have full access to login and see all pictures and newsletters. You may access options 1 and 2 whenever you have 'zoomed' in on a photo. You may exercise option 3 by clicking on the 'invite family and friends' button at the top of the right column.
I emailed several camp pictures to a friend, but the same one gets sent every time. What am I doing wrong?
You are not doing anything wrong. When sending camp pictures to friends and family, a link is sent in an email for this person to view the photo granting them access to this one particular area of the site only. Typically, browsers will cache this information which is why your friend only sees the one picture. Advise your friend to click on the logout button on the lower left side before attempting to view the other photos you sent.
How do I set the 'Favorite Picture'?
When you have zoomed in on a photo, a button will appear at the center button that says 'save as favorite photo'. Click this button. If at any time you wish to change this photo, you may repeat the process and the newer photo will become your favorite.
How many Favorite Pictures can I save?
You can only save 1 Favorite Photo at a time. However, if you would like to save several camp photos, you can create a photo album.
What is a photo album?
An album is a group of pictures. Your camp has made several albums for your viewing pleasure that are accessible in the 'photo archives'. You may also construct your own alum. To do this, simply zoom in on pictures you like and add them to your photo album. You may always access your saved alum by clicking the 'my photo album' near the bottom of the left column.
How do I change my photo album?
You must first click on 'my photo album'. While you are viewing pictures, you may select the 'delete from my album'. You may always add photos as you are browsing from anywhere on the site by clicking 'add to my album' once you have zoomed in on a photo.
Can I print these photos to my printer?
Yes. Feel free to print as many pictures as you like, they are here for your enjoyment.
Can I save these photos on my computer?
Yes. To do this, hold the mouse over the picture, click the right mouse button and select the 'save picture as' option.
How long will these photos be available to see online?
All photos, albums and archives will be available through the end of the camp season and into the early fall. Your camp may choose to maintain after this period has ended. In all likelihood, eCamp will offer a CD-ROM photo yearbook which will encompass all photos, newsletters and more from the summer web site.
Can I buy these photos?
It depends on how your camp is set up. Some camps yes, some no. You will see buttons if the pictures are available for purchase in print, mug, t-shirt or other possible formats.
I still need help or have questions.
The above questions and answers cover 80% of all questions posed. If you have not received your answer yet, please click here to be transferred to the Customer Service page where you will have access to email and telephone support.
How much do emails cost?
Each email costs 1 credit despite the length of the email. If you choose to add borders, photos, or games to your email, each add-on costs 1 additional credit.
I sent an email to my camper today. When will my camper receive the email?
Each camp has its own specified time for mail delivery. This time is posted on the email page. The camp will receive the emails at this time, download them, and print them. It is then up to the camp to distribute them at the designated mail call time.
I wrote an email to my camper and I was timed out of the site. Why did this happen?
For security reasons, you will be logged out of your account if you are inactive for 60 minutes. Please be sure to save a draft of your email your email to ensure your letter will not be lost.
I saved a draft of my email. Where do I go to find it?
Please note that you can only save one email draft at a time. This draft will save in the textbox where you write your email. Once you have sent the email, you can view the message in your Mail History.
What is Mail History?
Your mail history keeps record of all the emails you send to your camper(s). In your mail history, you can view the message you sent, the date and time of sending, how many credits were used in the email, and what add-ons you applied to the email.
The email I wrote sent twice accidentally. Can I get the other credit back?
Of course. We understand that there will be circumstances when internet browsers or computers do not function properly 100% of the time. If you send an email twice by accident, please contact your camp directly and they will be able to assist you.
I used up all the credits I purchased. Can I buy more?
It depends on your camp. To make an additional credit purchase, please login to your account and click on the email button. If this option is available, you will see a drop down menu on the upper right hand side of the page where you can select an amount of credits to purchase, and the corresponding prices. Please follow the on site instructions to complete the purchase.
My camper just came home and showed me the emails I sent. Why were the borders and photos not printed in color?
Most camps use laser printers that print in black and white. Considering the hundreds of emails the camp receives on a daily basis, a laser printer is the fastest and most cost efficient way to print emails.
I gave some of my credits to one of my invitees and the credits were not used. How can I get these credits back?
For any questions regarding invitees and credits, please contact your camp directly and they will be able to assist you.
What is in the news?

I read a news article the other day, and now I cannot find it. What should I do?

I clicked on the news button, and it says that there are "no articles available". What do I do?
Typically, the most recent news article(s) the camp posted will be displayed when clicking on the news button. However, if your camp has not updated the news articles for several days, you may see this message. Simply click on the news archives button if you would like to review the articles again.
What is a login code?
