Meet The Tentaroo Team
Tentaroo started in 2001 as a way to provide intuitive online class registrations, allowing camps to prioritize class seats by unit payments. In 2009, Tentaroo was redesigned from the ground up to support payments and more types of events. By 2015, support was added for facility booking and websites.
Most recently, the event registration and facility booking services were redesigned in fall 2018 to better guide users through the process and to work on all platforms.
We believe that the services we offer should offer rock solid reliability and be easy to understand. We go the extra mile when designing our services to ensure we always deliver quality that can be relied on.
We offer unlimited customer service to our clients to ensure that our users can take full advantage of the services we offer.
Moishe Groger is the CEO of Tentaroo and one of the founders. The original system that later turned into Tentaroo was a homegrown system that Moishe made for his local Boy Scout camp in 2001. Years later in late 2010 Moishe’s home council approached him to ask if there was any way the system could be made to work for their other main camp at the time, a day camp. Moishe took that opportunity to rewrite the system from scratch and start offering it to other summer camps - and so Tentaroo was born.
Moishe is an Eagle Scout and Vigil Honor member of the Order of the Arrow. He has a passion for the outdoors and for good design.
Moishe completed his Masters in Electrical Engineering at the University of Florida in 2007. In 2011, he started working for Tentaroo full-time in order to build the company into what it is today.
Enrique joined Moishe in January 2014 as a minority owner to help with the marketing and operations of MyBSACamp.com. Shortly thereafter, the company was rebranded to Tentaroo.com, Inc.
He joined at an exciting time and helped grow the company from a small homegrown system that primarily handled summer camp class registration for the North Florida Council to a company that can support all councils with their events, facilities, websites and more.
Originally from Colombia, Enrique immigrated to U.S. at the age of 8 with his family and settled down in beautiful Dunedin, FL. After graduating high school, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and graduated from the University of Florida. After more than 30 years, Enrique returned to his hometown of Dunedin.
Enrique is an avid paddle boarder. He enjoys hiking, water sports and soccer.
Anika joined our team on October 1, 2017 and is responsible for making sure that your support needs are met.
Anika has been involved in Scouting programs since about age 7. As a youth member, she has been a Girl Scout and a Venturer. As a volunteer, she has advised both a Venturing Crew and a Sea Scout Ship, and has been on a Boy Scout Troop Committee and has run many stations at Cub Scout Day Camps. She is a Brotherhood member of the Order of the Arrow. Besides direct involvement, her older and younger brothers both attained the rank of Eagle Scout and her parents were both involved in leadership roles in Scouting - she's not sure her mother will ever quit!
Anika studied at the University of Northern Iowa in the education department with an emphasis in Spanish. However, in 2011 Anika chose a different path and made Boy Scouts a career, working for three years as a Boy Scout Camp Aquatics Director and then joining Mid-Iowa Council as Program Secretary in 2013. In this role, she met Tentaroo and worked closely with them as the primary council contact.
In 2016 Anika married and relocated with her husband to the St. Louis area. She joined the Tentaroo team in October of 2017 to lead the support team. Providing quality training and assistance to the councils using the software is a passion of hers; she believes that trained people using great software is the best recipe for success.
Having joined in September 2019, Michelle is the newest member of Tentaroo’s Customer Care Team. Originally a Girl Scout, her life changed at 14 with an invitation to join High-Adventure Explorer Post 9747. Her branch of Explorers later became Venturers; this program introduced her to a wider world of adventure, self-discovery, and camaraderie that grew into a network of lifelong friendships. Michelle is driven by a desire to bring the same wonder and joy she was offered into the life of every child (including grown-up ones).
Originally from Florida, but a long-time Missourian, Michelle studied physics at what is now the Missouri University of Science and Technology. Before joining Tentaroo, she was an educator at the Saint Louis Science Center, teaching physics by creating lightning on stage and lighting stuff on fire.
Michelle enjoys backpacking, kayaking, canoeing, rock climbing, caving, taiko, history, physics, philosophy, (non-partisan) politics, video games, and sleep, whenever she can get it.
