    On this VERY special episode of the podcast Jason is joined by one of our favorite guests Jeremy Kohlenbrener! They do a DEEP dive into the "Best Camp Competition Game" bracket and break down the best matchups, greatest upsets of the tournament and celebrate the overall champion: Vroom (2:15). Then Jason is joined by the creator of Vroom, Matthew Vrooman himself (38:40)! Matthew was a counselor for 1 year back in 1997 and had no idea that his game had this much of an impact on camp. They discuss how it was invented and how Vroom has evolved over the last 23 years. We had a lot of fun with this episode and we hope you enjoy it!

    The 2005 Menominee vs. Kawaga competition will always be remembered by one phrase, "The Pin". With the competition tied at 15-15, the wrestling meet would decide the winner. After a number of hard fought matches Menominee needed a pin from it's heavyweight wrestler, Zak Ellman, to win the meet and take the competition. On this fantastic episode of the podcast Jason is joined by camp favorites Brian Bulgatz, Jeremy Kohlenbrener and the man himself Zak Ellman, to talk about that historic camp moment. They break down the significance, hand out awards and dive deep into the impact a moment like this can have on the camp experience. We hope you enjoy this engaging, funny and surprising episode!

So we hope you enjoy this new pod that was recorded in person with Jake Goodman, Josh Goodman, Sam Miller and Benjie Soren...we definitely had fun doing it.

    S3E3 - Single Gender vs. Co-Ed Camps with Sari Hirsch and Cliff Lissner (Chippewa Ranch Camp)

    On this VERY special episode of the pod Jason is joined by two-thirds of the Directorship of Chippewa Ranch Camp for Girls. As camp directors, one of the most popular topics we get asked about is single gender vs. co-ed camps. Why should I send my son/daughter to a single gender camp? What are the major differences between this and co-ed camping? Hows does choosing one or the other impact my camper's growth and development? I have a son and a daughter, should I not be looking to send them to the same camp?!? We cover all of this and more in this open, honest and vulnerable discussion. Thanks again to Cliff and Sari! You can check them out at the new chippewaranchcamp.com. We hope you enjoy this episode and learn a lot!
