Opening My Own Camp The Path We Take...

Starting a New Camp



Raise your hand if you’ve ever daydreamed about starting your own camp…


(High five!)



So, since I’m a such big proponent of doing things that scare you, I resigned at my current camp and am setting out on a new adventure! (A new “path”, if you will…)


I’m going to start my own camp. I’m still in the early stages now, but I’ll be sure to post updates about where the journey takes me.

I’m terrified, I feel like I’ve jumped without a parachute… but I’m also exhilarated and excited. (And did I mention terrified?)




Are any of you camp owners? I’d love to hear from you, I’ve been connecting with people who’ve been down this road before and asking for advice – so reach out to me if you have some wisdom you’d like to impart.



My colleague (and pal) Curt “Moose” Jackson and I have another super exciting project that we’re getting ready to launch!

I can’t say a whole lot about it yet, but I will say that it’s going to be AWESOME and I think we’ll all benefit from it!!!




Keep an eye out for more information, we launch on February 1st!


So many exciting, scary, and totally awesome things!!!
What’s got you guys excited and/ or totally freaked out right now?

Tell me about it in the comment section below.



  • Congratulations! As someone who has been reading your blog for the last year or so I am very excited to read about your path and experiences in setting up a camp.
