Stacy Stern, CSEP




Say hello to Stacy Stern, CSEP—entrepreneur, businesswoman and internationally acclaimed, award-winning event producer.

Stacy first fell in love with the special events industry more than 20 years ago, when she produced the AIDS Benefit: An Extraordinary Evening with Sophia Loren. This very special event took place under the stars in a 30,000-square-foot tent on Williams Island in Aventura, FL.

Although she grew up Philadelphia, South Florida became her home, the place where her career truly took off. The idea of coming up with a concept, building on that idea and then bringing her plan to life, endlessly thrilled her and filled her with satisfaction.

After delivering countless exceptional event experiences to hundreds and hundreds of happy clients, Stacy decided that it was time to take her business to the next level.

It had to be brilliant. It had to make sense. It had to be something people never would forget. And while Stacy was dreaming and creating her plan, she was spending summers in her cabin on Sugar Mountain in Banner Elk, North Carolina.

Such a beautiful, natural and undisturbed place seemed the ideal backdrop for Stacy’s next place of business. She went looking for unusual event sites and while there are many, it was Holston Presbyterian Camp that captured her imagination and her heart.

“I went. I saw. I toured. I fell in love. I’d love to go to camp again! Camp was so much fun. Wouldn’t it be great if we could go back…as adults?”

Yes, it would be—and with that Camp BIG was born!

The Vision: Camp BIG will be an experience guests will always remember. It will have an air of sophistication mixed with nostalgia mixed with innocence. Camp BIG will be a combination of traditional camp activities, great food, evening socials and unforgettable entertainment.

Be it social events, corporate events, private events, weddings, family reunions, or whatever else your heart desires, Camp Big will give you a unique twist on a beloved event in your life.

And how can we be so sure? Because with 20-plus years of event excellence, Stacy Stern will always deliver the best. So come meet the founder and have a great time at Camp Big!
