Well, today is one of those days. The bus has arrived! After a morning of travel and months of anticipation, the moment has finally arrived.

The campers arrived to counselors holding welcome signs with their names on it, music, and beautiful mountain weather. For the remainder of the afternoon, our campers will have a chance to get to know their new bunkmates, meet their amazing counselors, and explore the beautiful surroundings of Camp Inc. Tonight we will kick off the summer with opening ceremonies, Camp Inc. style, and bring the first day to a close with a campfire overlooking our beautiful lake!

Stemple new 304x304Tomorrow gets our entrepreneurship program started. Our campers will have an opportunity to meet with guest entrepreneur, Mike Stemple. Mike is a Colorado based tech entrepreneur who has built 15 companies and has wealth of knowledge to impart on our teens. He will be sharing with them his first-hand experience and what it means to be an entrepreneur. Tomorrow afternoon, our campers will unwind as they boat on the lake and hang out with their new friends.

We hope our campers will return back home a better version of themselves through their new friends, entrepreneurship experiences, and Jewish values.
