We've been developing camping and retreat center solutions with FileMaker since 1988.

*I know, the names as acronymns are a bit of a stretch. I started out with some camp staff who were not enthused about computerizing in 1988 so GORP was an attempt to connect with the camp/retreat culture. ACORN wasn't too hard to connect with after that first module was up and running. And I admit it, doing bookkeeping has always seemed to me like so much slogging through a deep swamp, thus the general ledger name.
