Trunk Trials

Posted on

Wow, Boys and Girls!

2021 sure took us all by surprise! We’ve had an unprecedented volume of orders to fulfill this season that we’ve had some difficulty keeping up. The demand to send kids off to camp came back with such a vengeance after the campless summer of 2020 and, along with the sudden and unseen challenges to acquire parts we need to construct our trunks, this season has certainly presented us with new trials to manage.

We’re proud of our typical lead time of 2 business days (or up to 5 business days if your order contains camp-branded apparel), but we’ve unfortunately had to continuously push ahead our lead times for our Traditional Steel Trunks as well as our Designer Trunks as order volume and supply challenges began accumulating.

Our lead time was roughly 30 days out just a handful of weeks back, but they’ve been slowly creeping back in the last few weeks. To get a delivery date for a trunk first add a trunk to your cart. Then, on the Shopping Cart page, use the Shipping Calculator. We keep these dates current and accurate.

We’ve resorted to selling some of the trunks that customers return to us. We take them in, replace any damages, and haul it straight into our Call Center. This way, when customers call to cancel their order because they know they won’t get their trunk in time, our reps in the Call Center can offer one of these reclaimed trunks which can ship out immediately!

Despite these difficulties and unusual methods we’ve had to implement, this season has certainly been one for the books! You’ve made it a great season for us and we hope we were able to meet your needs for summer camp. We’re very sorry if we were unable to fulfill your order in the time that you need, but we truly do appreciate your patience and understanding in these unprecedented times!

We’ll always strive to make our customers happy and do as much as we possibly can to get your order to you in time for your summer camp stay. Thank you for your understanding this season and we hope your summer is an awesome time regardless of whether you got a trunk or not. As always, thanks for reading!

Posted on

Hey, Camp Shoppers!

Here at Everything Summer Camp, we feel like shopping for your summer camp gear should be just as much fun as summer camp itself. Okay, summer camp’s pretty fun! Maybe not quite THAT much fun. But pretty fun, right?! We’re always trying to give our customers something to enjoy whether it be our cool contests, our personalizable products, or our sweet sales!

Along with our durable construction, awesome product selection, and outstanding customer service, we like to throw in perks to shopping with us where we can. We hold sales and have giveaways.

We’ll give you 300 S’more Bucks just for doing that!

S’more Bucks are our campy term for loyalty points. How much is one S’more Buck? The equivalent of one U.S. penny. Thus, a hundred S’more Bucks adds up to a dollar…a thousand S’more Bucks is ten dollars…etc.

It probably only takes about two minutes to sign up for a Rewards Account, tell us your birthday, and sign up for our emails. And for just that, you get $12.00 in S’more Bucks! It probably only takes five minutes to do everything listed above and just for that, you get $23.50 in S’more Bucks! We’re happy to give away the free money in exchange for our customers to engage and shop with us!

Reap Benefits
The easiest way to use your S’more Bucks is to redeem them whenever you go to checkout. With minimal effort, you’ll have your own, personal discount on your order. The other way to use you S’more Bucks is to give a voucher to a friend or family member (in case you’re in the giving spirit)! Vouchers work just like a gift card code—just enter it when you check out and your discount will be applied to the order!

So shop with us and have a blast while doing it! Enjoy watching your S’more Bucks accumulate. Enjoy spending your S’more Bucks. And enjoy making your S’more Bucks back! As always, thanks for reading!

Sure Shipping

Posted on

Hey, Seasonal Shoppers!

Throughout the year of 2020 we saw a lot of changes. But, despite a big push for early online shopping, our shipping cutoff map for the holidays hasn’t changed much at all. We understand the importance of on-time deliveries here at Everything Summer Camp and we want to help make sure that your gifting goes just the way you had planned this holiday season!

Rest assured that your delivery will arrive on time when you order from Everything Summer Camp! Just go by this convenient, little map that will tell you when exactly you need to order by. It’s our hope at Everything Summer Camp that your gift-giving goes off without a hitch. SO, please allow me to call your attention to our handy holiday map.

This helpful, color-coded map eliminates any misunderstanding about how early you need to place your order on our website to have it ship to you on time. Of course, delivery times vary throughout the country, but, personally, I don’t like procrastinating, so I like to urge people to order as early as they can—better safe than sorry!

And that’s why I’m sharing the magic numbers with you of 1:00pm on December 17. That’s the time and date for everyone in the contiguous United States to go by for guaranteed delivery by December 24. If you want gifts any earlier, order accordingly!

Note that December 17 may be early for some of you; Everything Summer Camp is based in northwestern Wisconsin, so if you live in Wisconsin, most parts of Minnesota, or another nearby area, you have the luxury of placing your order as late as 1:00pm on December 20, but don’t push it too far! Happy holidays, Everybody! Get your orders placed with us on time and, as always, thanks for reading!

Days of Deals

Posted on

Hey, Shoppers!

Here we are: a week into our Black Friday sale and it isn’t even Thanksgiving yet! We’ve been having a great sale so far, chock full of crazy discounts and cool deals—like our ‘Deal of the Day’ in which we feature a particular deal on a specific product that’s especially enticing! Today is the ninth day of our sale, equating to nine Deal of the Days. Let’s recap, shall we?

We kicked our first Deal of the Day of by taking $20 off the Undeniable 3.0 Medium Duffel from Under Armour and it sold out. Usually $44.99, we took it down to $24.99! Sorry you can't get this deal anymore.

We doubled down with the Three Cheers for Girls Backpack which regularly costs $39.99 and put a $9.99 price tag on it!

After that, we cut our $39.99 Red Ledge Youth Thunderlight Jacket in half and have it available for $19.99.

Keep cozy in Candy Pink Bathrobes for half the regular price—typically $44.99 and brought down to $22.49.

Moving right along, we discounted our $79.99 Kelty Tuck 40 Sleeping Bag to give it the nice price of $34.99! As of Sunday night we only have three of these sleeping bags left.

Find the comfortable Billabong Carter Shorts which are usually $44.99 and took them down to the amazing price of $14.99.

Have some campy Q-and-A fun with the thought-provoking Camp Talk Game, slashed from $7.99 down to $3.99.

Quench your discount thirst with the Camelbak Eddy+ .75L that you’ll typically find at $13.99 for only $4.99 right now!

The Summer Camp Handbook, an essential guidebook for parents sending their kids to camp, is usually found on our website for $14.99, now only costing $7.49! This book offers excellent advice about choosing camps, packing essential camp gear, and emotionally preparing your child (as well as yourself) for the approaching summer camp season. Even if you're 4 or 5, you can learn something from this book!

There are still 11 more days of deals coming your way so keep tuning in to discover what awesome deals you’ll find in the days to come! These deals will go until we run out of stock. The Under Armour Undeniable Duffel is gone already and inventory is already starting to get low on some other items—we only have three of the Kelty Tuck Sleeping Bags left. Happy shopping and, as always, thanks for reading!
