Let Me Play is a sports, education and outreach organisation that focuses on positivity through unique programmes and a deep commitment to child protection, anti-discrimination and equality. Let Me Play’s enthusiastic and professional team believes in the power of fun, designing all their programmes to engage as many young people as possible in wholesome activities that will help them to grow as individuals and have healthy and successful futures.

Established in 2004, Let Me Play began as a specialist residential sports camp. Through rapid growth and diversification, the organisation now provides coaching and teaching programmes for local authorities, charities, housing associations, colleges, academies, schools and individuals across the UK, delivers on government-funded projects and operates NEET Education Centres in London. Let Me Play’s focus includes four separate categories: education, residential summer camps, community projects, and school programmes.

Headquartered in Hammersmith, London, Let Me Play employs 40 full-time staff and up to 200 freelance contractors at peak times of year.

Simplifying for parents and staff
Let Me Play’s administrative staff knew that programme management software was a necessity for their growing organisation, but the solution they were using no longer supported their needs. While its bookings function was sufficient, a change in the vendor’s payment processing triggered Let Me Play to search for a solution that would deliver on all needs. Specifically, they wanted to ensure:
• A strong alignment with the Let Me Play brand
• A streamlined user experience

Then they found ACTIVEWorks® Camp & Class Manager. Let Me Play felt that ACTIVE Network understood sporting events and had built their system to be easy to set up and use. Transitioning to Camp & Class Manager was smoother than expected. With a few conference calls and access to chat with ACTIVE Network support staff to get help straightaway, all issues were ironed out quickly and they went live with their own branded registration page.

Parents and staff have been quick to adopt the new system, citing ease of use as a contributing factor. Camp & Class Manager has afforded the Let Me Play Team at least an extra 3 hours per week of productivity.

Reaching more young people with advanced reporting
Let Me Play is just getting started. In the weeks and months to come, they plan to dig deeply into the software’s advanced functions, especially analytics for daily numbers, breakdown of demographics per activity, bookings vs. actual attendance and ad hoc bookings. They are confident that Camp & Class Manager will provide more and more value as they go along, taking the burden off back-end administration so they can focus on reaching more young people.

ACTIVEWorks® Camp & Class Manager

In 2000, ACTIVE Network® pioneered online programme management technology to make life easier for both kids activity directors and families. Our vision was to transform today’s youth into an active generation by providing superb technology tools that empower programme organisers to deliver life-changing experiences to young people.

We do that through cloud-based Camp & Class Manager, an all-in-one online booking, programme management and marketing software solution. No matter the type of programme, Camp & Class Manager lightens the administrative load and enables smart, data-driven decisions while also helping to deliver great customer service.

It’s Easy. Create customised, branded camp forms that are a breeze to complete and delight participants’ parents.

It’s Mobile. Work wherever and whenever. Access programme info on a smartphone or tablet. Let families register their children 24/7 – even on the go. They can also start waivers and finish them later!

It’s Complete. Grow online bookings with the help of email templates and integrated social media. Add merchandise sales to your bookings page or easily offer coupons and discounts. Get the latest branding, website, SEO and marketing tactics from a complementary, dedicated expert digital marketing consultant.

But we’re more than technology.

Camp & Class Manager not only takes care of bookings and marketing so directors can stay focused on their business, staff and participants, we’re also a partner in their mission to impact lives. We succeed when you succeed.

In 2016, with more than 3,000 youth programme customers, the largest team of programme technology experts in the industry, and more than a million programme registrations powered by ACTIVE every year, our clients and their participants continue to inspire us. We’re more determined than ever to get – and keep – this generation of young people active!
