A New Kid's Headlamp!

Posted on

Hey, Light Fans!

One new brand name we’re more than thrilled to now have on board is Petzl. Bringing 20 lumens to the table with this kid’s TIKKID Headlamp, the Petzl brand is certainly serious about the service they supply through the quality of their equipment. That’s because a young Ferdinand Petzl explored places that required a product of a certain quality that wasn’t available to him in the 1930s.

Ferdinand was a cave explorer. His explorations grew into thousand-meter  by Get a good look at this great headlamp from Petzl.designing and creating solutions for ascending, descending, belaying, and seeing in the dark. And with his craftsmanship came the company. By 1970, the first ‘Fernand Petzl’ brand products were produced in a French workshop.

The current President of the company, Paul Petzl had this to say: “My father was an artisan and a speleologist [cave] explorer. From early childhood on, I was immersed in the thrill of discovery. The pleasure of designing and then perfecting objects drove my father, Fernand Petzl. The company revolutionized activities connected with lighting and verticality."

The Petzl company grew and it didn’t take long before it had developed into an international enterprise! Throughout this growth, the company strived and succeeded to remain mindful of keeping their passion and personal feel which was the foundation on which Petzl has been built.   

Manufacturing rope ascenders and descenders in the 60s, it was 1973 when Petzl put out its first mountaineering headlamp. Mastering their craft along the way, Petzl eventually produced a children’s headlamp—a product that’s easy-to-use and kid-friendly: the TIKKID Petzl Headlamp.

This lamp will light the night, casting 20 lumens onto your path. Boasting a flood beam for easy-reading and three different lighting modes, get this headlamp for your upcoming camp adventure. Check out this awesome Petzl Headlamp by clicking here and, as always, thanks for reading!

Makers of Mad Libs!

Posted on

Hello, _______ Fans!

We’re proud of the selection of books we have to offer here at our Everything Summer Camp online shop. We have a sizable collection of installments from the Camp Confidential Series as well as an excellent assortment of the famed ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ books. But nothing beats the classic and undeniably brilliant, fill-in-the-________, word game known as Mad Libs. Get laugh after laugh until your face hurts with these simple stories with blanks for you to fill in!

The perfect fun activity around the campfire or hanging out in the cabin before it’s time for ‘lights out’, Mad Libs requests random parts-of-speech with a different, random noun, verb, adjective, etc., turning the simple story into a ridiculous riot.

So, how did this brand name begin? Well, the concept for Mad Libs was born one fateful night back in 1953 when their co-creator, Leonard Stern was looking for the right adjective in a script he’d been writing. After he had struggled in the search for half an hour on this single word, his best friend Roger Price walked in. Evident to Roger that his friend was in deep frustration, he asked what he could do.

Leonard told his friend about his struggle with the elusive adjective he’d been trying to pin for the previous 30 minutes. He asked for help to which his friend Roger blurted out “clumsy and naked” which, as incorrect as it was, at least made Leonard laugh. The pair almost immediately recognized the potential behind this hilarious description of somebody’s nose (as Leonard’s script had been calling for).

Leonard commenced to leave the script where it was for the rest of the night and went to work with his friend Roger writing short, page-long write-ups with key words missing. You can find awesome, camp-themed Mad Libs and other fun ones right here when you shop our website! Enjoy laughin’ it up with your friends with Mad Libs and, as always, thanks for reading.

Create hysterical memories with your camp friends and find awesome Camp Mad Libs as well as full Box Sets when you get your Mad Libs.  Full of holes, these hilarious stories are not only hilarious, but educational too, flexing your grammar muscle and identifying the eight different parts of speech to play.

A very welcome addition to the fun and entertaining, camp-oriented activity books, games, and other supplies, Mad Libs holds a special place in our hearts as well as our funny bones! We salute these brilliantly interactive stories and, as always, thanks for ________, Camp Folks!
