What To Expect at DealerKnows Summer Camp

"A summer camp?!" We get it. You have questions. Before registering yourself or your team, we want to make sure you have a full understanding of all (amazingness) that is in store for you when attending DealerKnows Summer Camp.

What You Should Expect From Attending

The First-Ever DealerKnows Summer Camp

Attending the first-ever DealerKnows Summer Camp is more than just a unique conference experience. It's a promise of a lifetime of memories, knowledge, and skills to help you improve your performance in the automotive industry.

At DealerKnows, we understand the golden age of educational events in the internet sales field, and we have taken the best of those experiences and updated them for the current digital landscape. Our conference is a blend of nostalgia, whimsy, expert knowledge, outdoor activities, team-building exercises, and a campfire atmosphere.


Learning is not a buffet, so why not plan the day?

Day One

Day Two

Day Three

Day 1 will be dedicated to Trailmasters sharing fundamental best practices and tactics to compete in a do-it-yourself, high effort, limited budget, grassroots, guerilla-style environment. They’ll make your team cutting edge at the basics of each topic.

Day 2 is where our Trailblazers will build upon that education to help you dominate your market by incorporating in technology, measurement, and advanced strategies into your playbook.

Day 3 is when our incredible Camp Counselors meld the learnings from Day 1 and 2, add in their own recommendations of best practices, and work with you to provide actionable take-aways to implement.


Who Will Be There?

Expert Trainers, Not Speakers

Trailmasters, Trailblazers & Camp Counselors

A Look Toward the Future

Say goodbye to boring PowerPoint presentations and hello to hands-on, intimate learning sessions with hand-selected subject matter experts. Our trainers will share their best practices, implementation techniques, and real-world experiences with you and your team.

Our trainers are not just speakers,

  • Day 1, Trailmasters will share fundamental best practices and tactics to help you compete in a DIY, high-effort, and low-budget environment.
  • Day 2, Trailblazers will build on that education and show you how to incorporate technology, measurement, and advanced strategies into your playbook.
  • Day 3, Camp Counselors will blend the learnings from Days 1 and 2 and provide actionable takeaways to help you improve your performance.

DealerKnows Summer Camp is not just for dealership executives, it's also for the future leaders of your organization. We encourage you to bring both an executive manager and a protégé to form a bond and enhance your store's performance now and in the future.


What to Do

Team-Building Activities

Time for Self-Care

Vendor Village

Based on a pre-camp survey, you will be assigned to a "camp" with a mentor who will lead your team through various activities to strengthen your bond, leadership, teamwork, and communication skills. From kickball and soccer to archery and canoe relay races, there's something for everyone.

Whether you want to destress with breathing exercises or meet with a certified ayurvedic practitioner, or just relax in the vendor village, DealerKnows Summer Camp has you covered.

Trusted vendor partners will have their own educational opportunities, themed events, and a place to relax and network at cabins surrounding the campground.


At the Camp

Comfortable Environment

Safe and Inclusive

Worry-Free Accommodations

This is a casual, comfortable environment where you can wear t-shirts and shorts. Swag may be provided, so leave your stilettos at home.

DealerKnows Summer Camp is a supportive, caring environment where everyone is welcome and bullying is not allowed.

No one will be sleeping outside or on the ground. You'll be transported to nearby lodges in the morning and evening.


Planning Your Time

Indoor/Outdoor Learning


Fun Parties and Events

While eating and learning indoors, you will participate in outdoor activities to soak up knowledge and some vitamin D.

Like a real summer camp, you'll be asked to arrive at ATL airport on May 22nd, and we'll transport you to Camp Blue Ridge in Clayton, GA. You can return home on the 25th or 26th and we'll also provide transportation back. No kids allowed, but there may be some adult beverages available in the evenings.

From an educational scavenger hunt to karaoke, you're in for a fun time both during the day and in the evenings.
