Larry Johnson, Owner and Director of Camp Skyline in Alabama, President of CODA (Camp Owners and Directors Association) and proud Waldo customer, was recently featured on the ACA CampWire Podcast speaking about his experience using facial recognition at camp. Johnson, who was once a skeptic of the technology, is now a huge proponent of it. Also participating in the podcast were Darby Dame who is the Director Of Communications and Marketing at Camp High Rocks and Sam Hirt, Director of Marketing at Camp Tecumseh YMCA. The three camp industry experts had an open conversation on how the camp industry is changing due to technology.
Larry opens the conversation with a powerful comment on camper safety and how this technology helps ease parents’ minds. “The biggest thing it did for us, was that it gave parents’ proof of life. When kids go away, their parents are terrified. We had a lot of parents on closing day that said: “I don’t care what you change at camp, don’t change Waldo.”
