relove

relove

“We’d strongly recommend any sponsorship opportunity with Make.Do.Camp. It was the perfect market for us to reach, in the best way. The team was superb to work with and put on a high calibre event. We wouldn’t hesitate to be a sponsor every year.”

Suzanne Anderson, Partner & Director of Style, relove
www.relovehalifax.com

relove provided a dozen lamps for beautiful lighting in our cabins. A third of the stock was sold to campers by the end of the weekend!

Sauna Nova Scotia

Sauna Nova Scotia

“Being part of make do has raised awareness, and perhaps the prestige or legit-ness, of our sauna. It was an extremely satisfying experience to host those people, at that place, at that time. A surreal privilege, really, to have this idea of a moment actually come to exist. We made lots of super connections, sauna related and otherwise, and are feeling more a part of our community than before, which can only be good for business.”

Erica Brook, Sauna Nova Scotia
www.saunanovascotia.com

The sauna was set up on-site for our campers to enjoy all weekend.

SkinFix Inc

SkinFix Inc

“At Skinfix we believe that healthy skin can be a reality for the whole family. We believe in the power of touch, and in giving back to the communities where we live. We were pleased to work with Make.Do.Camp. to sample our award winning skincare products to the targeted group of attendees that are focused on living a healthy lifestyle.”

Pattie Reynolds, Vice President of Operations at Skinfix Inc.

SkinFix donated product in our goody bags for campers, promoting their hand cream and tattoo balm to an audience who used their product all weekend.

Tea North

Tea North

“Tea North came to the camp in its infantile stages, at a time when we were still very much learning how to perfect our product, and desperately looking for a lot of feedback, on what people liked, and didn’t like. The kind of people that went to camp in year one were the perfect fit to provide that feedback; i.e. mainly entrepreneurs, or at least people who had a unique drive to make the world a bit better. We got feedback about our labels, the packaging, the flavours, and we received a lot of great ideas for the future. One particular connection I made there is leading us to enter the Sobeys grocery chain in April 2017.”

Dave Moore, Owner Tea North

Dave Moore attended Make.Do.Camp. and supplied our booze-free dance night with his iced tea

The Spark Zone

The Spark Zone

“Today’s entrepreneurs and creatives are increasingly tied to their devices and, in some cases, neglect the all-important ‘human’ elements of themselves and their ideas. Make.Do.Camp. offers an opportunity to take a step back and a deep breath as participants immerse themselves in a weekend of self-discovery and reflection, surrounded by a diverse group of like-minded others motivated to move their ideas forward unencumbered by gadgets, thingamajigs and alcohol. It’s amazing what can happen when you strip the comforts away and focus on the idea!”

Jason Turner, Manager, Community Sandbox
thesparkzone.ca

The Sobey School of Business, via Spark Zone, was a Patron Sponsor and enabled a young entrepreneur attend camp.

Patch Halifax

Patch Halifax

“When Make.Do approached me for an in-kind sponsorship providing cell phone pouches for campers, I was thrilled to be involved in such a unique way.  They really made a point of understanding my business and creating a sponsorship opportunity that suited Patch Halifax. Plus, they lived up to their name by helping make the cell phone pouches we provided fabric for.   Consequently, my participation drew a lot of new customers into the shop.  Customers who are makers and doers.”

Christina Pasquet, Owner, Patch Halifax www.patchhalifax.com

Patch Halifax supplied Make.Do.Camp. with the material, tools and labour necessary to create cell phone patches for campers to safely store their phones during the event and for whenever they wanted to take a break in the future.
