Quality Camp Gear from Coghlan's

Posted on

Hey, Camp Fans!

We weren’t just blowing smoke when we named ourselves Everything Summer Camp. We really offer everything campers need and just about everything they could ever want to get the most out of their visits to summer camp. With so many products available, you can bet that we carry quite the assortment of brand names—and it’s only a matter of time before each one is featured here on the Blog.

Today we’re showcasing Coghlan’s—‘the outdoor accessory people’.

But that’s not how it began. Operating the company out of a small service depot he bought in Canada, Norm had just started Coghlan’s Gas Appliances which sought to service those with natural gas heating. He had a few tents and sleeping bags for sale as well, but that was it. His customers would come in to have their camp stoves and lanterns worked on and they might buy or rent some of the camp equipment he carried.

Many customers would have a question for him too: how to make toast on a camp stove. As some may know, a camp stove toaster is that ingenious, little rack that’s made to sit just above the flames, built with four spots to place your bread. Norm found a local based company that made this toaster. The manufacturer had discontinued the product, so Norm bought the remainder of their inventory. This move set the stage for the evolution of Coghlan’s to grow into the largest selection of camp accessories in the world.

Popularity for accessories grew since Norm’s beginnings in 1959. Eventually, the company expanded beyond the local warehouse they use in Winnipeg, Manitoba and added another warehouse located in the USA in St. Paul Minnesota. They now ship to more than 40 countries.

We have a substantial sample of their product line right here because, here at Everything Summer Camp, we know Coghlan’s means quality. From Sleeping Bag Straps to First Aid Kits, stock up on great traveling gear and camping supplies. Check out their great, affordable gear right here! And, as always, thanks for reading, Camp Fans!

From camp activities to summer camps themselves to the camp gear we have available here at our online store, we have a lot to talk about! But what about the folks who supply us with the awesome selection of camp gear we have to offer?! Yeah. We talk about them too.

Today let’s take a look at one of the many brands with whom we’ve formed a great relationship: Hybrid Light.

Hybrid Light has been lighting the way in ‘bright thinking’ and methods that result in low-impact to the environment since 2003. Generating power from sunlight is the name of the game for products like the Journey 150 Flashlight. Given multiple methods of charging with its USB port and built-in solar panel, this Flashlight is also constructed for durability—wearing a fully waterproof enclosure. Check it out by clicking right here.

It was one Terry Peterson who started developing a vision he had for a portable and solar hybrid technology that would be both affordable and dependable and not give you grief over some dead batteries. And it was this technology that spawned a series of products that are fully rechargeable.

The talented dream-team of engineers at Hybrid Light has developed flashlights that store solar energy for years! Having truly mastered their craft, products like the Hybrid Solar Flashlight Journey 150 here at Everything Summer Camp are exceptionally valuable to the avid camper.

Oh-So Moso!

Posted on

Hey, Camp Folks!

Keeping things smelling fresh is important anywhere you are, especially at summer camp. Storing dirty camp clothes and keeping gear in your camp trunk can potentially lead to some serious stink without the proper precautions. One of the best ways to keep your footlocker smelling fresh is with the 100% bamboo charcoal all natural air purifier from the Moso brand name.

Let’s take a look at how this brand was born:

Moso initially set out with the simple desire to construct and market car fresheners. They were extremely new and pretty unaware of the world of air purifiers and fresheners. And they learned quickly that they didn’t just need to figure out how to create an air freshener, but they needed to do it without the use of toxic chemicals—the way that most manufacturers make them.

“We knew we had to change course,” Moso says on its website.

And so they set forth to make a high-functioning air purifier that was safe in terms of human and environmental health. They searched far and wide throughout our country and overseas until they came upon what the Chinese people call ‘black diamond’.

This is the bamboo charcoal that Moso uses—environmentally friendly, ecological, and affordable. It’s even so safe that the people of select regions in Asia use it to purify their air, water, and they even ingest it for detoxing their bodies. 

‘Black Diamond’ bamboo charcoal has passed the Moso test which concludes that this stuff works wonders to remove odors, bacteria, absorb harmful chemicals, and even dehumidify and area.

The folks at Moso packaged up this miracle odor-remover and purifier and put it on the market ten years ago in 2010. It saw immediate success! Since then, Moso has climbed the ladder in brand name recognition for its effectiveness and friendliness to the environment and ourselves!

Let Moso help you maintain an odor-free and clean means of air purification! Check out the All Natural Air Purifier from Moso by clicking right here and, as always, thanks for reading, Camp Fans!

Showershoes are no Flop

Hey, Camp Fans!

We like to talk about ourselves often enough here at Everything Summer Camp because—let’s face it—we’re pretty awesome. But how about the folks who supply us with the great selection of camp gear that we offer?! We like to highlight them too. Today we’re highlighting one of the many brands with whom we’ve formed a great relationship: ShowaFlops. Reflective of ShowaFlop’s founder Hal and his New York accent, the ShowaFlops brand name just about says it all: they’re Flip-Flops, made to be worn in the showa—umm, I mean ‘shower’. With drainage holes and a textured, antimicrobial surface that prevents slippage and protects against bacteria as well as fungi, these shoes are just what you want in any public shower!

An experienced entrepreneur, Hal thought his days as a business owner were done, but when he dropped his daughter off for her first year in college, his wife, Evelyn visited the restroom and cried out at the sight of the shower stalls, “You need Flip-Flops for the shower!”

For the next year, Evelyn and Hal were determined to launch their concept of the shower shoe. After inspecting numerous prototypes from various manufacturers, the entrepreneurial couple found the right fit and ShowaFlops was born! Once their shower shoes with the funny name arrived on the market they saw great, immediate success with camping gear outlet stores such as a certain one-stop summer camp shop.

Fear no public shower whether it’s at summer camp, a gym, your college dorm, or anywhere else you find public showers. Just pick up your own pair of convenient and protective ShowaFlops footwear! These beauties keep your feet clean and protected and greatly reduce risk of falling! Get your public shower protection by clicking right here and, as always, thanks for reading!
