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!
