Camp OMHG! Summer Camp for Creatives


Pack up your tents and sleeping bags friends, June is here & it is time for our first ever multi-month theme on OMHG! This year we are doing something different and taking us all to camp for a summer of business growth + creative fun. The counsellors are friendly, the bunks are comfortable, and the lessons are importants ones. June is all about Survival Skills and basic training in essential business skills. Daily lessons from our contributors will help you earn your badges in everything from filing your taxes to starting fires. By the end of June you should be prepared for whatever entrepreneurship throws at you and have a bag full of tricks to help navigate through our next month at camp.

Once we have the basics covered and are prepared to survive anything we will venture out to where there be dragons to map our own way as entrepreneurs and creatives. July is Adventuring & Orienteering month and we are covering leadership, creative experimentation, adventuring,  colouring outside the lines and daring greatly. Entrepreneurship is so much more then just having the basic skills this is our month to talk about what it means to blaze our own path. We’ll provide compasses, star maps, and great company as we journey into the unknown to develop our confidence and orienteering skills.

August will be our Summer Break and we’ll wind down with pictures and thoughts on our summer adventures after our busy two months at camp.

    Did I mention I’m obsessed with the Lunchbox font? Yeah. I’m glad I’m not alone. Love it.

    Also, I’m very nostalgic about summer camp (it’s where I met my best friend when I was 5 and we’re still best friends), so this will be a fantastic month!

    • I am totally obsessed too Tif! I think I’ll be doing a lot of designing this month just so I can play with it! How awesome that you met your best friend at camp & you are still friends-I think you need to write us a guest post about that!!!

        Aw! I could! That would be fun.

        I may end up designing our Stubborn Press logo with Lunchbox because of how fantastical the ligatures are. Or at least designing a logo inspired by how well the font links things together. 🙂

        • The ligatures & options on it are ridiculously fun to play with-the only problem is remembering I have actual work to do & not getting lost for hours playing with my new toy. Designing a logo with it makes it ‘work’ smart lady 😉

    I spent the day preparing for my daughters summer camp themed birthday party and took a break to read this. How perfect!
