Describe the campaign/entry
Summer will never be the same. Introducing Camp Vegas for grownups, where sexy camp counselors, waterfront recreation and luxurious high-rise cabins created a summer camp experience like no other. Summer camp is where kids get their first taste of freedom. Camp Vegas is where adults reclaim it.

Describe how the campaign/entry was launched across each channel in the order of implementation
Summer camp is where kids first taste freedom. Camp Vegas was created to give adults a place to reclaim that freedom.

Camp Vegas kicked off with earned media supported by TV and print. Bikini-clad women parachuted into MLB stadiums where Vegas celebrities threw out the first pitch.

A second television commercial announced a YouTube contest searching for camp counselors. They became the online face of the campaign - reporting on events around Las Vegas via postings on YouTube. Web banners and social media drove traffic to the postings.


Then Camp Vegas hit the road with a newspaper insert and street teams in our feeder markets. Las Vegas showgirls attended events where elaborate sand castles represented iconic Las Vegas resorts.


Camp Vegas created a unique framework to remind consumers about the only-in-Vegas diversions waiting for them. And it worked. In July 2010, Vegas saw its largest year-over-year visitation increase since 2005.

Give some idea of how successful this campaign/entry was with both client and consumer
Summer has always been slower for Las Vegas visitation. Camp Vegas created a unique framework to remind consumers about the over-the-top pools and only-in-Vegas diversions waiting for them. We questioned why kids should be the only one’s having summertime fun. They shouldn’t. Apparently, consumers agreed. In July 2010, Vegas saw its largest year-over-year visitation increase since 2005. Last summer there were two billion impressions in both paid and earned media.
