Many people think a company’s culture is defined by lighthearted moments in the office. Ping pong tables, happy hours, and nerf guns. We believe it goes much deeper than that. It is the blending of our values, our passions, and our purpose. At CampMinder, we are proud to celebrate our team culture and to help you bolster your own.
Our culture is the manifestation of who we are as people. Guided by our core values, we’re an unapologetically quirky team rooted in professionalism and personal growth. Why does this matter? Because you deserve to know who you’re doing business with. CampMinder is not a product; it’s a culture.

Seeking to understand with curiosity and vulnerability.
Find A Better Way
A culture of innovation and continuous improvement. Constantly seeking personal and professional growth.
