Introducing One Tough Bitch

Tammi says: I was already a chubby pre teen when I met Shelly Fisher in the summer of ’74 at Camp Akiba (back when she was “Shelly Lotman”), my childhood happy place. She was a year older and way cooler than I was, but we bonded.  Forty years later, she came to support Campowerment and […]

Why These Experts: September 2018

While so much of what happens at a Campowerment women’s weekend happens because of the (wild, wacky, wonderful) Campers who show up to play, a huge part of the experience is contingent upon the Experts: those gifted thought leaders + warriors who show up dedicated to helping Campers (YOU!) elevate your lives.

Celebrating International Women’s Day


Though we hoot and holler about women’s achievements all year long, today, International Women’s Day (#IWD2018), is one more excuse to collectively raise our voices and continue to #PressForProgress (this year’s campaign hashtag).
