CampBrain started because I like making tools, especially for other people to use. It's important to me that the tools I make for other people are incredibly useful, intelligently designed and delightful to use. I love that we work for camp. It makes me happy to direct my life's effort towards an industry that makes the world better one cabin at a time.
Many years ago, I left a very large corporation to join CampBrain and have loved every minute! Here I focus on building a company with strong core values, such as integrity and trust. Every day I work with motivated, passionate people striving to do amazing things, not only at CampBrain but also at each of our camps.
I love getting in at the ground level of a camp's relationship with CampBrain. From our first conversation, I truly listen and probe to determine if we can answer their needs. It is important to me that the relationship is built on trust and honesty because I want it to be a long one.
I love to help people, especially with technical items. Give me an issue and I won't stop until I get to the bottom of it. I have worn many hats here but the common thread throughout is the great feeling when I know I have made a difference for our camps.
I listen, understand, question, listen some more and then work hard for those 'Aha!' moments that make it so worthwhile. There is nothing like hearing 'registration was sooo smooth' or 'check-in time was cut in half this year'. Love it!
The collaborative, intelligent, open and close-knit environment at CampBrain is none like I have worked in before and I am thriving. I have found the place where my passion of designing elegant and simple interfaces and processes comes to life. And in working here, I have developed a new passion - camps.
After working at summer camp for 7 years, I wanted a way to stay involved in camping. I was fortunate enough to begin working at CampBrain, where I get to experience camp everyday talking with camps all across North America and attending conferences throughout the year. Not only do I get to speak with great people, I get to work with great people that are passionate about what they do and how they do it.
I am all about teamwork. Being a Camp Director taught me that collaboration is the way to achieve success and that is the mindset I bring with me as a Project Manager. I believe that camps are one of the healthiest experiences we can offer our children and I am proud to work with a group of people and a company that believe the same thing.
I'm passionate and committed about making a difference. Working with a fantastic team that strives for excellence, and being able to learn and grow every day, are the reasons I love being with CampBrain. My current position allows me to go above and beyond my limits to get to the 'WOW' moment where my customer/technical skills are best used. I love that we truly value the customer's needs and feedback, employee suggestions and we encourage pursuit of different avenues to solve problems.
Camp has had a huge impact on my life. The lifelong lessons you learn as both a camper and staff member have molded me into a dedicated, hardworking teammate which I bring to work with my colleagues and clients every day. I love to talk to clients about camp and help them solve their problems and make their camp lives that much easier. Working with CampBrain has afforded me the opportunity to continue working with camps and building these strong connections.
Having little exposure to the camp industry prior to joining CampBrain, I was uniquely inspired by the incredible daily effort put forth by our camps to provide the best possible experience for every single camper. Identifying and solving tough problems is what drives me. Let me handle the tough issues so that our camps can focus on delivering the best service to their parents and experiences for their campers.
Working at CampBrain has given me the opportunity to merge two of my passions - camping and teaching. I have been a camper, staff member, camper parent (registering my children for summer camps!) and teacher. Here, I get to put myself into many different shoes to help our clients “do what they do best”.
Having been a camper for many years, I really “get” the benefits of camp. I combine that knowledge with my analytical skills to identify and resolve tough technical issues for camps (and their campers). While I enjoy the nitty gritty of the technology, playing both trumpet and guitar in a number of bands keeps me well-rounded, focused and sane!
I enjoy working at CampBrain because I know the work that I’m doing is making a huge difference in both the clients' and families' lives. You know you really enjoy your job when you are excited to come work every day mainly because of the environment and the great people.
Working as part of a dynamic team that is composed of highly skilled, creative, and motivated people inspires me daily. Exploring the latest technologies with the goal of providing the best experience for our clients creates a uniquely rewarding environment.
I am forever grateful to camp. While attending and working at camp for 14 years, I met some of my best friends. I also came to understand what it means to be a part of a passionate and dedicated team. It is my experience that “camp people” are unique individuals – selfless, and motivated by the desire to help others learn and grow. In this regard, CampBrain is full of camp people. I take pride and satisfaction in being able to help camp people solve technical and logistical problems in order to achieve their own goals.
Nothing makes me happier and keeps me coming to work with a smile like solving new challenges. Whether it's unravelling a gnarly bug, finding a new tool to make development easier or coming up with an elegant bit of code to solve a business problem. That and whiteboards. Definitely whiteboards...
I didn’t quite know what to expect when I started working here. I certainly did not expect to become good friends with a large number of co-workers. CampBrain has introduced me to a ton of new skills and experiences I was not previously familiar with, and I take pride in working here, because I know what we do genuinely helps.
I have worked as a Data/Business Analyst in the past and enjoy the process of solving a problem. That is what drives me. Being at CampBrain, I have also realized that the process does not end at finding a solution. To be great at what I do, effective communication and involving the camps in the problem-solving process is extremely important.
I find that my personal values and ideas match well with CampBrain’s core values. I truly believe that our team provides excellent, consistent service and I am proud to be part of this great team. I am committed to hard-work, creative problem solving, and thrive on overcoming difficult challenges while providing genuine, courteous, and informative customer service.
It has always been a delight to work here. Our team and clients are great, friendly people that are a joy to work with. Getting to use the latest tools and technologies keeps things fun and interesting. Making quality, cutting-edge software is challenging, but, with it, comes the thrill of overcoming those obstacles. Starting in tech support here, I loved helping the camps use the software. Now I'm working to build the new features that will make their lives easier.
I am a self-diagnosed “techie” and it comes from a true love and respect for technology and its continuous development. Nothing thrills me more than discovering new devices and technical processes…and then using those to solve others' technical challenges. Incredibly satisfying to share my love of tech to help camps!
