C&N Trunks are great for much more than just summer camp!


Hey, Camp Lovers!

Essential to summer camp trips year after year (as well as our bread and butter here at Everything Summer Camp), the C&N Camp Trunk is the best way to send your camper with their gear off for their camp stay. It’s been the #1 recommended trunk for summer camp for decades.

While, it remains the go-to choice for sending your child off to camp with all their essentials neatly packed away, its utility doesn't end there. There are, in fact, a slew of ways our customers have found to put our trunks to good use outside of the summer camp season.
