We have exciting news! We have updated our photo sharing service! We are so thrilled to be working with Waldo Photos to bring our camper parents and guardians an even better photo experience during your camper’s session at Asbury Hills.
What is Waldo Photos? How does it work? What does it cost? Those questions and more are answered below! Consider this your own personal FAQ page for all things photo sharing with Asbury Hills and Waldo.
First things first, why are we now working with Waldo Photos?
Glad you asked! Over the last few years, we noticed that while our photo service wasn’t bad by any means, it could be better. So, Why Waldo Photos? The owner and founder of Waldo Photos is a camp dad. He knows what is like to search through dozens of photos looking for his camper. He understands what camps need in a photo sharing service. He gets camp.
Who is Waldo?
Waldo is photo-finding phenom who uses facial recognition to find all your camper’s photos in the album and then delivers them to your phone via the Waldo app, with notifications for new photos.
How does Waldo work?
You submit a photo of your camper’s face and enroll in the service. Waldo does the rest-matching that photo to all the photos in our camp album sending you all YOUR camper’s photos to your phone via the Waldo app.
How do I sign up?
We will be sending out a sign-up link soon to all of our 2019 parents and guardians. Should you opt in to use the facial recognition photo delivery service, you’ll be directed to download the Waldo App. You’ll need a join code (we will send you that, too!) and a pin number. Waldo will send you the pin number once you submit the join code.
Will Waldo share my selfie or matched photos with the world?
No way! Waldo respects your privacy! Your photos will only be accessible by you. (And you had to enter your camp join code and a pin code verification to even access the photos.) It’s up to you whether you want to share your photos with the world.
Can I easily share all the photos with my family?
Great news for you! The Waldo app allows you to invite up to 6 family members to your camper’s photo stream. That means they can get the same photo alerts and see all of your camper’s photos, too.
What does it cost to use the facial recognition photo delivering service?
The cost to enroll in the facial recognition photo delivering service is $11.99. Half of that goes towards our camper scholarship fund at Asbury Hills. Waldo believes in camping and believes that camp scholarships are super important to making sure each child has the opportunity to attend summer camp!
Do I have to sign my camper up for facial recognition photo delivery service to see photos?
Absolutely not! While Waldo loves to find and send you photos, he also provides a free web gallery for you to view photos online. You can view, download, and share photos from the web gallery. We will be sending that link out soon, too!
Can I still order prints?
Yep! You can order prints from the Waldo App or the web gallery.
We are thrilled to work with Waldo to bring our parents and guardians the best photo services! Not only are we updating our photo sharing service, we have also hired 2 photographers this summer to make sure Waldo has plenty of photos to share with you!
Over the next few months leading up to camp, we will be sharing more information about Waldo. Camper parents and guardians will receive the standard email prior to check-in with plenty of information about Waldo and camp in general. There will also be plenty of information available, along with the join code for Waldo at check-in. As always, feel free to email Paige with any questions.
We hope you are as excited about working with Waldo as we are!
