Why This Web Site Exists
The Onset of Insight
Hi, My name is Ray Paseur. In June, 2007, I drove my son to summer camp, about 180 miles each way. When I got to the camp, I found other families from my church and neighborhood that had just made the same trip. We drove big sedans and SUVs and we carried more empty seats than campers. Our kids were spending the week together at camp, and we didn't even know it. When it happened again in 2008, I knew something was wrong. We should have shared the rides.
What Went Wrong
A quick Google search found more than two million carpool web sites. How come not one of them could tell us that we had several perfect opportunities -- especially on a long trip like this? The answer is really quite simple: Those web sites are all anonymous and inert. They don't know you or me. Nobody asked us to share a ride.
Why Schools and Camps Should Organize CarPools
Easy: To save their families' valuable time and money! Convenience for their camper families. Conservation of our natural resources. Community among the camper families.
You May Have Wondered Why They DIDN'T Organize CarPools (until now)
Camps had no good way to know which families lived near each other. (Zip code lists have proven universally worthless.) There was no way to know who was interested. You needed an online data base to make it work, but Camps couldn't put campers' personal information on the internet. It used to be too costly and complicated - but not any more!.
How CarPool2Camp.org Solves the Problem for Everyone
Camps use this web site to invite their campers' families in the ride sharing program. The key to the program is called a "PoolPass®" and only camps can give these to campers. Campers use the PoolPass® and this web site to find their fellow campers who are going to the same camp on the same day. Camper families are in complete control of their personal information! So it's not complicated any more. It's easy and it's FREE!
