For 10 years firms have invested on fastgrowing market and have created competition where a monopoly existed before. Indeed public organism had the monopoly on this market.
But ther is no evolution in term of pricing because of the commercialtaxes that these firms have to pay. Associations don’t have to pay TVA for example whereas firms have to. Among these successful firms we can quote UCPA or Telligo.
These kinds of firm proposeinteresting activities since they can’t compete in term of pricing. They are adverting a lot as well. That’s why associations and other governmental organisms have to be reactive and to propose attractiveoffers. We are assisting to a real division on this market: there are nowadays summer camps for rich people and for poor ones. The summer camps are classified in 3 different categories:
* Summercamp with housing:
It has to welcome at least 7 kids for 1 to 4 days at least (depending of the purpose of the summer camp)
* Summer camp without housing:
It has to welcome between 7 and 300kids or 7 to 40 teenagers for 14 days at least.
These summer camps are only owned by state and associations. There is no possible to create a scouting firm.
As we said before this isa fast growing market, we found these numbers communicated by the government in 2005 (We made a request to the government to obtain these facts for 2010 but we didn’t get the answer on time, if youwant this document feel free to ask us next week)
In 2004 there were only 1 100 380 kids and teenagers welcomed. We can underling a growth of 400% between 2004 and 2011. These numbers could beslightly different but are still relevant.
