Meet Our Hosts

Chris Harrison & Lauren Zima

Experience Camps is thrilled to welcome Chris Harrison and Lauren Zima as the 2024 hosts for Experience: NYC! Experience Camps came into the couple's lives in summer 2023 when Lauren, whose father died in 2010, first heard about the organization and volunteered at our Maine Girls program. 

Chris is a longtime television host and producer. After getting his start in sports broadcasting, he went on to host No. 1 reality entertainment show The Bachelor for nearly 20 years among many other hit shows. Lauren is a 3-time Emmy award winning correspondent with Entertainment Tonight.

Chris and Lauren are devoted to using their platforms to promote positivity, kindness and mental strength. In addition to their work with Experience Camps, they support the Tiger Woods Foundation, and the nonprofits AIM Youth Mental Health in California and the Grant Halliburton Foundation for suicide prevention in Texas.
