I got this from the most recent CAMP-USA news letter, sign up for it at

The name CAMP is an acronym that stands for, ‘Construzione Articoli Montagna Premana,' best translated as, ‘Articles for Mountaineering Made in Premana.' Some climbers know this. Most do not. We were interested in putting the climbing community's imagination to the test by letting them recreate the acronym based on their perceptions of the company, the sport and the lifestyle. From more than 1,500 entries, we are excited to announce the winning entry and top ten finishers as voted on by registered users:

1st Place: Crags Are My Playgrounds
2nd Place: Caviar At Meatloaf Prices
3rd Place: Caught Above My Protection
4th Place: Climbing Away My Paychecks
5th Place: Climbing Against Mother's Protest
6th Place: Climbing Another Magnificent Peak
7th Place: Climbing: A Magical Pursuit
8th Place: Charley Ate My Piton
9th Place: Cultivating America's Missing Past-time
10th Place: Chow At Miguel's Pizza!
