"There’s a time and a place for perfection – science, architecture, and definitely that tailored dress that rocks your world. But what about the rest of the time? Perfection or imperfection? I’ll choose the latter."

15 Years Ago It Began with a BIG IDEA: Women Helping Women...And Now The Next BIG IDEA

The CampExperience Network is a 5000 strong Sisterhood with over $1 million raised for 50+ charities in Colorado and around the globe.  To celebrate the anniversary in style, and to honor some exceptional Sisters, we will publish The STEW: Smart Talk Exceptional Women.

This 200 page, full-color art & insights book will inspire and uplift with 60+ women sharing heart-felt stories.  Now you can join us to bring these voices to print and to serve women everywhere with Sister love.  We need you on our team!

Any donation helps fund our professional design and first run of 150 hardcover and 150 paperback books.  And any money over goal will fund gift books for first responders, front-line workers and charities serving our community.

Our 15th Anniversary celebration book to honor and support women has been happily supported and now will serve so much bigger than we dreamed.  We are also so much bigger than we budgeted!

Any level of support will fuel our positive narrative that women can and women will!  Together we can Do Good and Have Fun and make this world a better place.  Learn more and see the art and list of authors  https://campexperience.com/the-stew

Here is a quote from The STEW author Susan Frew "Wouldn’t you just know that when a rogue employee challenged the very life of our business, my past experiences helped me to get my own company back on track." Just wait till you see Susan the SURVIVOR of so many life challenges that she uses for the good of others.

Look at this art from The STEW author Jennifer Nassi. Here is quote from her story. "Starting from a young age there was an inner nudge that grew louder and louder throughout the years, to get involved, stand up, make a difference." As you see in her art, everything starts in her wonderful heart. Please consider helping us amplify the voices for our 60 women!

"These roses are Harison’s Yellow Rose (a shrub rose). They were carefully packed in wagons by pioneer women as they made their journey across the country to settle on the eastern plains. They are hardy once cultivated (loved). Pioneer women reluctantly parted with these roses to only their most beloved and steadfast friends."
From the story of The STEW author Chris Chopyak
Please help us take these voices to the world!

"In general, it is strange that someone from Norway would want to build a theme park in the Caribbean, but with the right amount of craziness, the desire to accomplish something unique, and a good dose of passion, I think I now can say that it has also been the reasons why we are running into all these amazing people and opportunities that we have along the way." Belinda Sousa, Norway, Creator of Korala Adventure Park.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?”- Marianne Williamson

This is STEW author Christy Belz's favorite quote. Her story is of empowerment and transformation one experience at a time. The STEW is for YOU!

I just LOVE this piece I did on a literally a paper bag! It has some scrap art (the I LOVE part) from M.E. Ster-Molnar and artist from London. In 2021 I plan to take some Sisters to London to do an art journaling class with the AMAZING M.E.
