WHAT IS CAMP?

Red Card’s CAMP app was founded in 2011 as a way to feed Wisconsin athletes off campus while remaining compliant with NCAA rules. It is now used by 11 schools in three of the Power 5 conferences to feed thousands of athletes every day. In 2017 we built a training table tracking system and in 2018 our new product line will include fueling station tracking and inventory management, and online ordering for smoothies.

HOW CAN UNIVERSITY ATHLETIC PROGRAMS USE IT?

CAMP can be used to supplement or replace expensive meals incidental to participation options for feeding your student athletes.  Simply tell us what allowance each of your student athletes should have and we take care of the rest.  Your student athletes can go to any of the restaurants you choose, at the time they chose, and present the card to pay for their food.  You maintain control of your budget and what they eat, and the student athletes get to dine when they have time in their busy schedules.

HOW IT WORKS

Each student athlete is given access to the CAMP app.

The student athlete checks into the restaurant they’re at when it’s time to pay. Their name immediately pops up on the restaurants CAMP tablet.

The restaurant cashier completes the transaction on the CAMP tablet

  1. The cashier selects the student athlete.
  2. The student athlete’s picture displays on the tablet and the cashier verifies their identity.
  3. The cashier sees the student athlete’s balance and enters the exact amount. The balance is immediately subtracted from the student athlete’s account.
  4. An image of the itemized receipt is captured.

The transaction and receipt image can be seen on the universities' dashboard immediately.

Red Card will give access to any university staff (compliance, nutrition, ops) staff that needs access to the CAMP dashboard to add meals, track what the students are eating and more.

Red Card pays the merchants weekly via ACH

Red Card takes care of dispensing funds to the merchants on a weekly basis. The university will be billed by Red Card for actual funds spent by the student athlete.

Red Card audits all transactions on the CAMP dashboard.

The POS receipts are carefully audited by Red Card staff to ensure that the student athletes stay compliant with all NCAA and state regulations.

The system can be configured to allow a large number of control options

  1. Daily/weekly max spend
  2. Daily/weekly max spend with maximum transaction amount
  3. One-time use meal
  4. Bulk deposit
  5. Reoccurring allowances
  6. Many more

CAMP can be used to track training table attendance

Red Card has built a system to specifically track athletic department training table attendance. Reporting can be pulled to show usage to save on food costs in the future.

BENEFITS

BENEFITS TO THE ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT

Compliance

Red Card takes compliance very seriously. Each transaction is audited by Red Card staff to ensure that no alcohol, tobacco, energy drinks and any other non-NCAA compliant items were purchased.

Cost effective

The cost for Training Table can be as high as $23 per student athlete.  The cost for a CAMP meal averages $9 when you factor in that you do not pay for student athletes who do not spend the full amount allotted and variety is factored in by having a choice of restaurants. PLUS: We make our money by charging the restaurants a per transaction fee so there is no cost to the athletic department.

Limited staff needs

Our staff handles all the compliance, restaurant settlement and receipt auditing. The athletic department has the ability to set up meals and add/remove athletes in our easy-to-use dashboard, but our staff can assist with that as well.

Control

The Athletic Department can control how much they are spending and where the students are eating.

Nutrition

The CAMP dashboard allows dietitians to monitor what food the athletes are purchasing which allows them to coach wiser nutritional choices.

Community outreach

Athletic Department money gets spent with local merchants and creates more student jobs at the restaurants.

Communication

The CAMP app allows the Athletic Department to communicate with the student athletes in a variety of ways.

BENEFITS TO THE STUDENT ATHLETES

Flexibility

Student athletes have a busy schedule. This program allows them to eat when they want.

High quality food choice

Student athletes are young people who still prefer a Chipotle burrito to steak and lobster.  They are being provided their preferred food.

Team building

Our data shows that the student athletes not only eat with teammates, but also with individuals from other teams.
