What is ActivityHero?

ActivityHero is a marketplace and registration system, built specifically for kids activity providers to sell camps and classes to families nationwide.

Families can easily search for kids in-person and online activities by age, category, location, and more.  They can save their kid’s profile for personalized recommendations and conveniently research, review, and register for multiple programs on one platform.

How it Works 

Businesses list camps and classes on ActivityHero risk-free, with no upfront costs.

Our marketing team uses social media, paid search, brand partnerships, and personalized email newsletters to over 400k subscribers to increase registrations for activities in our marketplace.

When a family registers or joins a waitlist, you’ll be notified. ActivityHero only charges a fee if we are successful in delivering a paid registration.

Success Stories

ActivityHero is invaluable for the new business that we wouldn't have found through our own marketing efforts. Their email newsletters are key to new customer acquisition. Highly recommend!

Jenna Vella

Owner, Ingenium Enrichment

Many ActivityHero families registered for our school holiday and summer camps! The system was easy to use and it was a very positive experience!
Parker-Anderson Enrichment

I recommend ActivityHero to all my franchisees because it's one of the most innovative ways to get new customers. We don't have to pay upfront, and there's only a fee when we get new customers. These customers have turned into repeat customers.
