Gabrielle Raille, Camp Hacker, Camp Code – BCCA 2019 Keynote Speaker

Why The Real World Needs To Be More Like Summer Camp Gabrielle Raille

“I wish the ‘real world’ was more like camp!” is something camp directors hear over and over again from campers…  second only to what we get asked by parents… “So what do you DO the rest of the year?”

Using the national marketing campaign Thanks to Camp, let’s bridge the gap between the impact we have on our communities and how our profession is perceived.

Join Gabrielle in a journey where we change the conversation, express the positive impact of camp and become the go-to experts that the “Real World” needs to listen to.

Bio: Gabrielle Raill has combined her passion for education and her camp experience to develop a wide range of educational and developmental programs.  She has consulted with several organizations including The International Camping Fellowship and NASA. She is the Camp Director of Camp Ouareau where her mission is to create a positive female environment for the all-girls camp. In addition, she is a proud co-host of the podcast, Camp Code and Camp Hacker.
