Episode 1 Summary:

In Episode One Allison talks about how she came up with her idea to create a virtual summer camp that was accessible to any kid no matter financial background or location. She wanted to bring the magic of summer camp to every kid, and had the idea of Happy Camper Live.

After telling her family about her idea, Allison’s first call was to Steve. She knew Steve’s background in television would bring an expertise to the project, and she was right. Today, Happy Camper Live has hundreds of video activities, a comedy reality series and even a virtual talent show. Kids can also upload their own videos to teach their own expertise whether that be robotics, rocketry or playing the piano.

“It’s a wonderful way to get kids up off their couches, and get them active in the world. It’s about finding that creative spark and a new thing that they can become passionate about,” Steve said in the podcast.
