Advanced Reports: Campers

Advanced reports allows you to easily create custom reports by pulling fields from various places within CampSite. Creating custom reports not only gives you the ability to see specific information about your Campers but also gives you the option to apply filters to narrow down your report results. These reports can be used for mass e-mailing, generating canned letters, and posting mass transactions.

To create or view an advanced report, select Advanced Reports from the Campers dropdown menu on the navigation bar.

If you have any saved reports, you can select them from the dropdown. In this example, we will create a new report.

Creating an Advanced Report

As an example, we'll create a report for Campers enrolled in Week 1, including date of birth, their home phone number, and their t-shirt size (a question asked on their enrollment form).

Enrolled Campers can be added by selecting Sessions, or by typing session names into the text box, allowing for reporting on campers enrolled in any or all sessions.

Statuses allows for reporting on campers who are not currently enrolled for the selected year.

After selecting sessions or statuses, campers belonging to that session or status will display in the report results. In this example, all 45 campers enrolled in "Week 1" are displaying in the report results.


By default, report results include only camper first and last name. To add more information to your report, click +Add fields...

  1. Fields are organized into tabs by category. Click each tab to view which fields of information you can add.
  2. Check mark a field to add it as an additional column in your report.
  3. Once you've selected the fields you need, click the X in the upper-right corner to close the pop-up.

Additional columns will be added to the report with the new fields.

  1. Click and drag a field to re-arrange where the column is positioned in the report.
  2. Double-click the delete icon to remove a field.
  3. Click a column header to sort results in ascending order by the values in this column; click again to sort in descending order.


Report results can also be filtered according to each, in order to narrow down the results of your report.

In our example, we'll add a filter to narrow down our results to only include campers who are between 8 and 10 years old.

Click +Add filters...

To add an age filter, navigate to the "Camper Info" tab and check mark "Age."

Next, we need to specify the filter criteria.

  1. First, select how to filter by this field. Filter criteria are dependent on how the data in that field is collected. For example, age can be filtered by "is between", "is not between", "is blank", or "is not blank". To filter a specific age range, we'll select "is between".
  2. Enter the criteria details. Here, we'll enter 8 to 10, and then Add Filter.

Now that our has been applied, our report results lowered from 45 to only 23 campers in the "Week 1" session that are between the ages of 8 and 10.
