A Case Study – Reopening Providing Day Camps


As recreation facilities look ahead to how and when to reopen, Arena Sports is taking an unique approach in preparing for day camp programming during this upcoming summer and what that might look like.

Arena Sports owns and runs 5 indoor sports facilities in the Seattle area and uses the Dash Platform to manage these facilities. In Washington, schools are closed through the end of the school year. Based on the “curve,” Arena is anticipating the stay-at-home restrictions could lift sometime in May in the Seattle area. In addition to first responders and healthcare workers, many families that generally rely on the school system for childcare during work hours will be in need of safe childcare options. Using Dash Software, Arena identified a list of families with elementary-aged children and conducted a survey of their interest in a “Pre-Summer Camp” as a solution once businesses open (with schools remaining closed). Within 24 hours Arena had received nearly 600 interested participants.
