It’s what’s inside that counts


About our Camp Insiders

Unreal experiences start with being real. And let’s be real. Leaving your friends, family and double-mattress-of-dreams to live en-masse with a bunch of strangers at camp for the summer, can be kind of daunting. Our class of ‘23 Camp Insiders are here to help. Leading up to summer ‘24, they’ll be across our channels giving you all the inside intel on life at camp. From choosing your camp to what to pack, reach out @jenzatravel with any questions for our Insiders.
