Who wants to infuse friendships, life’s grounding lessons, and gather around a campfire in the spirit of fun to (re)discover who you want to be as you "grow up"? Does such a space even exist? The answer is yes.
Tammi Leader, after a 30-year career as an award-winning television producer, found herself a divorced single mom, burned out and no longer feeling fulfilled by her career and she knew it was time to reimagine her life.
Remembering back to the fun and community of her childhood camp days Tammi founded Campowerment, a transformational playground for women to learn, connect and grow together on purpose through a camp experience.
Campowerment provides the opportunity for women to find their passion and purpose, and step into a power that they may not even realize they have.
Tammi believes that the world is waiting for all of us. Every one of us has a superpower that we can get back if we get unstuck.
In this episode, we discuss how women from all walks of life come together to find themselves and get the support they need to live their best lives
Tune in to hear about Tammi Leader's expert-led community, Campowerment, and connect on purpose.
Founder of Campowerment
“I left my TV career with two Emmys and a dream: to build communities of happy, empowered people ready to propel themselves forward.”
In 2013, after three decades as an award-winning Television Producer, Tammi Leader took a huge leap of faith, stepping out of the TV Studio and back into nature to create Campowerment, the purveyor of live and transformative, expert-led experiences, powered by play!
After moving from her hometown of Miami to Los Angeles to develop a health & wellness show for Telepictures (Warner Brothers) designed to help people live life bigger and better, with help from game-changing experts in every area of growth, Tammi was at the top of her career, and yet deeply unhappy. At 53, she set out to find that “happy place” within herself, so she went back to her roots…to the place of her happiest childhood memories: summer camp.
In partnership with her College Professor mother (Grandy) and Brand Strategist oldest daughter (Chelsea), and the support of her entire family, Tammi created a new concept, live and off-air: a sleepaway-camp-inspired experience where grown-up women (like her) could re-ignite their lives.
Enter: Campowerment, where Tammi invited in the power players who had impressed and inspired her during her many years at The TODAY Show, NBC News, CBS News, America’s Most Wanted, and EXTRA TV.
This new passion project, which became a business in 2013 when O Magazine named it one of the 50 things that made Oprah say, “Wow,” was the culmination of Tammi’s highest skills and most beloved concepts.
From the beginning, Campowerment has been featured in Forbes, Fortune, and Parade Magazines, the TODAY Show, CNN, The Hollywood Reporter, The LA Times, Miami Herald, Reader’s Digest, and lots s’more.
Tammi is currently working on a book about resilience and the power of kindred connection. We think her story has only just begun.
