"We really need camps for adults," the former secretary of state told the American Camp Association of New York and New Jersey’s Tri-State CAMP Conference. "None of the serious stuff ... I think we have a fun deficit in America."
Hey Hillary, we agree which is why we started CAMP! Named '1 of 30 Women Entrepreneurs Changing the World' by fashion mogul Eileen Fisher, community leader and influencer Sonja Rasula started CAMP in 2013. Her innovative new form of 'the business conference', CAMP is a creative conference for adults that exists to get people outside of their day-to-day atmosphere, rediscover their childhood sense of fun and wonder, and help guide them toward greater success and happiness. CAMP is a conference for people who want to grow both professionally and personally, but hate traditional business conferences. We take 200 attendees to a summer camp environment and offer a curated four-day experience that is programmed to inspire, increase innovation, encourage collaboration and community, and grow success.
Essentially, CAMP is a juxtoposed experience that taps into both the left and right side of the brain in order to inspire the most change and discovery. CAMPers take part in business workshops and creative craft classes, listen to inspirational speakers, and face outdoor challenges to stimulate all senses. CAMP is for those who understand the value of both climbing trees and learning about how to utilize social media for business. It's an experience that will open your mind, connect you to an amazing community of influencers and show you that four days in the woods (unplugged from email and cell phones) can have a huge impact in your work and life, and increase your creativity, success, and, we think, happiness.
