TumblCamp was designed and developed by Clifton Rhoad in the Fall of 2011 on a desktop computer he carried around in a laundry basket. Initially released under the name TumblrCamp, at SXSW in 2012, the second version, rebranded as TumblCamp, was started in summer 2012 and development continued through 2013. A completely revamped TumblCamp was unveiled in 2014, and in late 2015 Jameson Elder stepped in to take over and run things for 2016 and beyond.
