C-R-A-Z-Y let’s get crazy… about camp! Our newest camper of the week Scott Rosenbluth knows a thing or two about that. He has been going to camp for 17 years…and counting! That’s an all-time Camper of the Week record. Scott has turned several decades of his own personal camp experiences into a successful business career. Read on why we are crazy about Scott!
The dog days of summer take on a whole new meaning today! Meet Shelby Semel, otherwise known as “the dog whisperer” to many of her clients and their adorable puppies! Shelby is one of the premier dog trainers in NYC and owns her eponymous dog training company helping pups, dogs, and their owners every day in group classes and private training sessions with her Positive Reinforcement Dog Training technique. So let’s give three (barks) cheers for Shelby and read on how her amazing camp experience shaped her into the person she is today!
Who would have guessed that this big city mom started out at a small town camp… we did!! Meet Risa, the co-owner of Big City Moms, a marketing and events company targeted at new and future parents. She attended her 8-week sleepaway camp for 11 amazing summers, and loved every minute of it! She’s here bringing her camp spirit and Big City Mom advice straight to you.
Do you ever envy your kids over the summer and wish you could go back to camp? Well, believe it or not, you absolutely can! Let us introduce you to Michelle Goldblum and Alison Leipzig, the co-founders of Soul Camp, an adult sleepaway camp for the soul. These Summer 365 Campers of the Week both went to the same 8-week sleepaway camp in the Poconos and reconnected as adults over color war, Girl’s Sing, and hundreds of old camp memories. Now they are crushing it by bringing fitness, nutrition, yoga, and personal transformation to the greatest place on Earth…. CAMP! Read their soulful story here!
Our Camper of the Week, Scot Tatelman, has got the POWER and is making a big STATEment about it… Camp Power and STATE Bags, that is!

Read up on Scot and his awesome camp experiences (he spent 19 years there), and check out how you can help spread the gift of camp!

Zoe is the ULTIMATE camper! She attended her all-girls, 8-week sleep away camp for seven years as a camper and one year as a counselor. (And now visits all the time!) She grew up in Scarsdale, New York, and now lives in Manhattan. Zoe is currently working in theatrical productions and corporate affairs at The Weinstein Company, a film production and distribution company. Maybe she can even get Harvey to make a movie about CAMP… where do we audition?! She still caries her camp bag that she got at age seven, remembers all her camp cheers, and has even thought about getting her camp logo tattooed on her ankle. Sound crazy to you? Sounds like a camp soul sister to us!
There is nothing in the world more zen than sitting at the lake, looking up at the stars, with your arms around your best camp friends… or is there?

They launched Panatea together, and are now committed to spreading the word to “sip up and zen out.” Read their story here and get involved in the #matchamovement.
