Tentaroo started in 2001 as a way to provide intuitive online class registrations. The system enforced valid class registrations and tracked requirements completed at camp. It included many reports for the camp and units and allowed camps to prioritize class seats by unit payments. Even 14 years later, the Tentaroo system still contains the data that was entered in 2002 for reporting.
In 2009, Tentaroo was redesigned from the ground up with a more intuitive, powerful interface, payment tracking and processing, and support for many different kinds of events and accounts. Since 2009, Tentaroo has been doubling in sales each year, while improving the experience of our clients that we've had from the beginning and adding more capabilities that are aligned with our core values.
In mid-2013, a brand-new facility reservations system was added based on valuable feedback from councils all over the country. Finally, on January 1st, 2015 the new website module was launched, providing responsive websites specifically designed for Boy Scout Councils. Today, we're just as available as always and our customer support has only improved over the years.
We provide custom, cutting-edge camp management systems, specifically designed for Boy Scout camps. We provide the most powerful yet intuitive systems on the market.

Moishe is a Boy Scout who has worked at a summer camp with units and class registrations. He is an Eagle Scout and Vigil Honor member of the Order of the Arrow. He has a passion for camping and service and his High Adventure trips to Philmont and Atikokan are some of the highlights of his life.
In 1999, Moishe got his start with programming when he made a custom database for his lodge, Echockotee Lodge 200. In 2001 he worked at Camp Shands in North Florida Council and began to design a system to improve class registrations and the tracking of completed requirements at camp. Camp Shands has used that system, now evolved into Tentaroo, since 2002.
Moishe completed his Masters in Electrical Engineering at the University of Florida in 2007. Moishe worked for four years on a PhD in Electrical Engineering until 2011, when he chose to work for Tentaroo full-time instead of finishing his PhD. Moishe is still the lead developer on the project. He enjoys the creativity of the development and the rewarding aspect of making a system that works well for Councils, Camps and Units.
After finishing his Naval obligations as a corpsman with the 2nd Marine Division, Enrique attended the Fisher School of Accounting at the University of Florida. He proudly returned to service for Operation Desert Storm then returned to his studies where he earned his Master of Accounting in 1996. He then attended 1 3/4 years of Law School.
Enrique switched career paths and opened up a web design and consulting business in 1998 where he met a young Moishe. After 11 years of working on projects with Moishe, Enrique joined the Tentaroo team. He has a passion for helping organizations meet their online needs.
In 2014, Enrique started to lead Tentaroo's new website division. Enrique is also now providing customer sales support.
Enrique's first taste of the scouting life was the 2013 National Outdoor Conference at Philmont and he hopes to attend many more events in the future.
