Are you looking for a quick and easy way to receive and sort emails from parents during the summer? There are a variety of services (such as ours) that will provide this ability for a fee (either charged to you or your parents). But, let’s assume you don’t want that for now.

I was chatting with one of our camps a couple years ago (sorry, I can’t remember which one – otherwise, I would give credit where it is due!). We discussed receiving emails from parents in the summer and here was their system (it may be more detailed but this is what I recall!):

Pretty simple and quite effective.

A few drawbacks (compared to a more “professional” service):

None of these drawbacks are huge and there is something nice about just telling parents to email this account and put “XYZ” in the subject line. No credits to purchase, nowhere else to log in. Depending on your situation, maybe this system works perfectly for you – particularly, if you are looking for something quick and easy for this summer!

Any other simple ways you have found to organize incoming emails during the summer?

On a somewhat related note, I discussed online photo galleries earlier if you are looking for a quick and professional solution.
