How can I see photos that were posted last year?
In the photos section, you can select a different Camp Season with the popup menu on the left side of the page. Using this menu, you can view photos from the past several years.
How can I organize my camper"s photos?
You can use our "My Albums" feature to collect and organize your camper"s photos. To get started, click on the "My Albums" link in the Photos section. In the "My Albums" area you can create as many albums as you would like (Some parents create one album for each camper.) Once you have created the albums you want, you are ready to start placing photos into them. Start browsing through the camp albums, and when you find a photo you like, click on the "Add to My Albums" link below the photo. You can return the "My Albums" section at any time to view the photos you have collected.

You can you use the "Delete" button under a photo in your album to remove the photo. You can also delete an entire album from the "Manage Albums" page.
When are photos uploaded?
Photos are uploaded each camp day at the end of the day. Photos from events that continue on past the end of the camp day such as 49er trips and late nights will be posted the following morning and added on as a separate album to the prior day"s photos.
How can I create my own photo albums?
You can use our "My Albums" feature. Please refer to the "How can I organize my camper"s photos?" question above for more information.
Can I create more than one photo album?
You can create as many albums as you would like. In the "My Albums" section, click on the [Manage Albums] link. You can use this page to create additional albums.
Why aren"t there any pictures of my campers?
The idea behind ColemanTown is to give you a flavor of each camp day. While we keep careful records and make sure to circulate our photographers because we want to include as many children as possible each day, it is virtually impossible to capture every camper every day! We hope that you will enjoy each day"s photos and that when you see one that captures your own child, you will place it in your own family album! We are confident that over the course of the summer, you will happily come across numerous photos of your child enthusiastically engaged in camp activities. (If you look only for your own child, we think you will miss out on much of the flavor of life in Coleman Country!)
How can I navigate the slideshow?
There are two options for navigating the slideshow. You can use your mouse or your keyboard. To control the slideshow with your mouse, move the pointer over the slideshow. A set of controls will appear that you can use to pause, reverse, or fast forward with. You can also use your keyboard. The "P" key will pause and start the slideshow and the arrow keys will advance or reverse the photos.
