Empathatic New York Sleepaway Camp
 

PASSION, PURPOSE, PLAY 

Our founders, Laura Kriegel and Jack Schott, spent 3 years traveling the country visiting and researching summer camps, before founding Stomping Ground. They visited over 200 camps and 47 states collecting the best ideas in youth development and re-imaging what is possible in an intentional community.

Driven by authenticity, Laura and Jack are sought after speakers on the power of summer camp, play as education, and partnering with young people. They have spoken at dozens of conferences including the American Camp Association National Conference and as keynotes at the YMCA South East Campfire Conference and Midwest Association of Independent Camps Annual Conference.
