What is

Camp Madness?

The Virtual

Intercamp Competition

Bring your camp community together to compete in a fierce and fun 64 Team March Madness style bracket competition

Enter as many camp teams as you'd like before the bracket fills up.

Each camp team will submit a 15 second to 5 minute video showing off their spirit. Content should be creative and original:


  • Camp Songs

  • Choreographed Dances

  • Campfire Skits

  • Wacky Talents

Entries must be original content and have licenses and permissions, including music. 

Why Compete?

This is a very difficult year for the camp community, and especially hard on our campers who are not at camp or adjusting to new changes this summer. Camp Madness offers an opportunity for you to stay engaged with your camp community and for your community to feel your camp spirit virtually while you are unable to come together in person. Bring your best camp spirit to the competition!
