The Original Man Camp

Founded in 2009 by Stanford MBA Dan Shevchik, The Original Man Camp LLC was created with a vision of developing traditional skills while bonding outside of the corporate world. It seeks to provide the ultimate guys weekend with a double bottom line of raising money for charity. The weekends take place in a camp setting with activities targeted toward professionals who need time away with their friends. The weekend includes a series of traditionally male activities ranging from skill development (working with a car engine or gourmet BBQ), to leisure (poker or beer tasting), to more primal (shooting a bow and arrow or a gun), all of which will be taught by local and international experts. One third of camp fees are donated to charities as selected by attendees during the weekend and the company aims to raise over $1 million for charity in its first five years.
