Who We Are

At CampMinder, we build beautiful, intuitive, web-based systems to streamline summer camp business operations. Since 2001, CampMinder has been an industry leader serving over 900 camps and 500k+ campers throughout the United States and beyond.  

Headquartered in Boulder, Colorado, CampMinder cultivates a purpose-driven, values-led culture. Our #1 priority is employee engagement. Engaged employees bring their best selves to work which helps create a powerful experience for our clients. That's why our mission is to foster a world where work is fulfilling and life is fun -for the employees, camps, and families we serve. This focus has resulted in being named one of Outside Magazine’s Best Places to Work in America (2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020), an INC. Magazine Best Workplace (2019), one of Built in Colorado’s Best Places to Work in Colorado (2019, 2020, and 2021), and a Colorado Company to Watch (2018).

We are a highly collaborative and transparent organization, with a culture rooted in our core values. Product and Engineering team members work closely together. We value brainstorming and solving problems as teams, rather than individually. We don’t always agree on everything, but we resolve our differences respectfully.

We break our work down in small portions and fully embrace Agile methodologies.


Two years ago, we began building a new platform with Go (Golang) microservices and containerization using Docker and Kubernetes. This new platform works in tandem with our existing back-end (built in .Net, C# and MSSQL) and powers our new mobile/web UIs, built in React Native and ReactJS.

An Insider's view of CampMinder

What’s the vibe like in the office?

One of the best things about working at CampMinder is our open and curious vibe. We collectively communicate with all other departments if we have questions, or see different areas that we can improve our clients experience. We have an open door policy that encourages building relationships, which gives me joy every day I come to work.


Client Support Representative

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

In my position, I get the opportunity to work with just about every team at CampMinder on a weekly basis. Whether I'm looking at a puzzling case with our front-line support team or collaborating with our sales team about a potential new client, I love working with my colleagues. Everyone here is a team player and it really makes my day great!


Client Success Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

From day 1, the expectation was that I bring my best to the table. I am 100% accountable for my product area, I’m expected to solve problems creatively and get help when needed. I have full autonomy. If I want to try something or do something different, I go do it. For me, this is nothing but exciting. I wouldn’t change any of it. I love it.


Product Manager

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I believe that the human connection is important when we work together. Therefore, I have regularly scheduled 1 on 1’s with each person on my teams. In addition, I remind everyone to always feel free to come to me and discuss any topic. Even if I am going through a very busy period, I will prioritize someone's need/want to have a conversation.
