A couple of Sundays ago, alarm clocks for dedicated members of the Brainrunners running group went off when it was still dark outside.

BRAINSTORM 2017

Opening Remarks at BRAINSTORM 2017

It’s a wrap. BRAINSTORM 2017 is complete. We couldn’t be more thankful to all of you who invested your time and joined us for our 3rd annual conference.

CampBrain goes to Camp

It has become an annual tradition that our team (+ families) go to camp in September for a weekend. We like to choose a different camp each year and, this year, we went to Camp Oconto. Admittedly, with most of our team having long, loyal camp backgrounds, choosing the camp can be tricky!

Support Hours During BRAINSTORM 2017

BRAINSTORM 2017, our user conference, starts this Wednesday evening (Oct 11) and there will be a few disruptions to our usual support hours. During the following times, we will not have support staff available for the usual phone/email support (though we will monitor our emergency email):

Sporting Life 10k

We ran. We walked. Perhaps, some of us crawled at stages. We raised a good amount of money and helped more kids get to camp. We owe a big thanks to our chief cajoler, Goran. 


A Time to Remember our Values

It feels like now is a bad time to be silent. It feels like one of those moments where we may look back and wish we had gone with our gut. It feels like a good time to think about our principles, our values and ensure we are being true to them. As individuals and citizens, we have personal beliefs, we have a sense of right and wrong. We choose times to be vocal and active. As organizations, we develop core values and beliefs – we agree on principles and norms. Whether we actively establish them may be a question, but they organically develop over time with or without our help. There are times when organizations should also be vocal about their principles.

Camp Administrator Hall of Fame: Nominations Are Open!

It is one of our favourite times of the year, when the nominations open for the Camp Admin Hall of Fame.  What is this Hall of Fame, you ask?  It is very near and dear to our hearts as it is a way to openly recognize the efforts of Camp Administrators.  Their work is often ‘behind the scenes’ but it is invaluable to the smooth operation of camp.  

Holiday Hours

Holiday Hours

With Christmas and New Years landing on the weekend this year, our support hours will remain pretty normal over the next several weeks (8:30am to 8:00pm EST).

BRAINSTORM 2016

BRAINSTORM 2016

Thanks to everyone who attended BRAINSTORM 2016! For us, this is a big event – everyone here loves the energy, the engagement, the enthusiasm and the simple act of putting a face to a voice! Everyone here gets involved in one way or another, from designing and delivering sessions to being a bus counselor for the trips to and from the restaurant on Thursday night (hey, we all have something we excel at :)).
