Camp Stomping Ground

Stomping Ground is a not for profit overnight community of self-directed individuals practicing radical empathy and re-imagining a world where more is possible. We founded camp in 2015 and are constantly growing, learning, and striving to build a stronger community. This is where we spend most of our time.


Alliance for Self-Directed Education

We were founding organizers of the Alliance for Self-Directed Education, a non-profit dedicated to amplifying the voices of self-directed learners and making self-directed education a possibility for every child.

The Summer Camp Society

The Summer Camp Society is a collaboration with Sarah Kurtz Mckinnon. We provide professional development for summer camp professionals and other youth development workers.



Laura Kriegel Artist

Laura is a visual artist, primarily painting and drawing. Her art work is a raw reflection of her attempt to capture her thoughts and feelings, while her design and illustrations come from a different more analytical part of her brain.


Camping Coast to Coast

From 2012-2015 ish, we scoured the country looking for the best ideas in summer camp. We visited over 47 states, saw 150 camps, and traveled over 100,000 miles. We met some of the most passionate compassionate people on the planet. The people we met and what we learned on this trip built the foundation for how we interact with the world.


Batfish Creations

Attention is the number one asset. The best stories need to be artfully crafted for the right audiences. With Batfish Creations, we helped mission driven organizations better tell their story to the right people. We built websites, made drawing videos, and ran graphic facilitation retreats.
