How We Help Summer Camps & Programs


Our knowledge of the camp and the summer industries makes us an ideal resource for summer camps and programs. We have consulted with numerous institutions, helping them refine, improve, and grow their businesses.

Through Camptips®, we help camps, as well as kids and teen programs, become more profitable and sustainable. This requires keeping up with new trends, reaching consumers in new ways, and meeting their emotional and financial needs.


Director Feedback

“The Timberlake Family of Camps brought Jill into our offices for a day-long consultation, during which she helped us to dig deep and identify who we are as an organization, and the individual strengths of each of our camps. Prior to her visit, Jill spent a good deal of time on the phone with us helping to determine how to spend the day most efficiently and most effectively.

Once here, she proved time and again throughout the day that she is truly an expert in the camping industry, with an incredible experience-based knowledge of kids, parents and what they are looking for in this ‘new economy’ and new world. She had clearly done her research and she developed a unique and chock-full agenda for the day. From the minute she arrived she challenged us to define some of our ‘hidden’ strengths and successes, as well as answer some questions that will help us move ahead and build for the future.

While initially we committed to a one-day ‘Jill experience,’ we plan to continue to employ her smarts, creativity and vision over the coming months. I would recommend to any organization – camp or otherwise – to tap into Jill’s incredible knowledge and unique take on business.”

“Jill is terrific! I was not sure what to expect from our meeting, and walked away with many new ideas and things to think about. I was especially impressed with how well prepared she was for our meeting and with the amount and quality of the research she had done in preparation. She gave us some realistic suggestions on how to market our camp. Her smile and enthusiasm for what she does is refreshing and energizing! I look forward to continuing to work with Jill in the future.”

Jill has the great gift to be passionate alongside running a business. She is personable and professional, initiating and responding to the needs of her clients and her friends. She is a volume of knowledge connecting people and resources for memorable experiences.”

“Thank you so much; your value added was through the roof.”
— Adam Weiss, Foundation for Jewish Camp

“Jill was an incredible asset for our camp. She worked with our leadership team by reviewing our marketing strategies, communications and materials and helped point us in the right direction. It is never easy going through the transition process from a family owned camp to an agency owned camp, but with the assistance of consultants like Jill, it was a successful one for us. Her insight, honesty and knowledge of the industry made her a valuable resource for us to turn to.”
