In the Beginning: About the Founders
For more than 35 years, the KIDCAM® story has been one of many happy beginnings and endings. The KIDCAM® program was founded by Jim Stubbs whose extensive educational background and genuine devotion to children have consistently guided and directed his actions to excellence. Jim opened the first KIDCAM® in New Orleans followed by a second some 17 years later. Realizing the KIDCAM® concept had remarkable potential, he continued to expand and open new camps. Jim’s leadership and direction helped shape the KIDCAM® philosophy, while Mario Bazile has taken over as owner of the KIDCAM® enterprise.
Prior to taking the helm, Mario worked for KIDCAM® in a wide variety of posts, from counselor in training to camp director. With a Bachelors and Masters degree in Education, an eight-year tenure as a teacher at the prestigious Isadore Newman School, four years as an assistant principal and over 17 years of summer camp training, Mario knows and understands children and the complexities of organizing and running a successful summer camping program.
Today, a total of 14 KIDCAM® summer camps are in operation throughout South Louisiana, providing a safe, wholesome and exciting summer program for its campers, age 3 to 13.
The KIDCAM® concept is growing rapidly in popularity for its structured, enriching and fun programs.
In addition, the KIDCAM® founders have developed a proprietary software program that makes the running of a summer camp much easier! State-of-the-art software/web integration helps with everything from scheduling for parents and children, for Director to staff, and for franchisee reporting.
And now, Mario would like to share his knowledge and experience with you, as a potential member of the KIDCAM® franchise family.
