Hey, Camp Fans!

We here at Everything Summer Camp do everything we can to help you find the best in outdoor products and kid-friendly camping gear. Our excellent selection in summer camp gear is made up of great brand names you may be familiar with such as Kelty, Crazy Creek, and ENO. And we love featuring these brands here on the Blog to give our customers some idea of what these other companies are like.

Recently added to the lengthy list of great brands we carry, we are now proud to offer superior products from the name Helinox. A leading name in portable camping furniture and accessories, Helinox has comfortable camping chairs available on the Everything Summer Camp store online.

For a long time, tent makers across the world went to one company for innovations and new techniques in the production of high-strength and lightweight alloy poles. That company: Dongah Aluminum Corporation—known to those they worked with as DAC.

DAC has spent years upon years the strongest and lightest tubing around. Eventually (about a decade ago in the year 2010), these processes resulted in the founding of a new company within the DAC company and the brand name Helinox was born. In the short time that this company has been around, they’ve already proven their products by winning award after award in competitions from institutions such as Red Dot Design, ISPO, as well as Outdoor Industry.

With a line of durable camping chairs, tables, cots, and other accessories, Helinox offers durable comfort and optimal performance for adventurers of all kinds. Get a look at the pair of chairs available here at Everything Summer Camp, the Helinox Chair One as well as the Helinox Chair One Mini. Take a seat wherever you please in the majesty of nature and, as always, thanks for reading!

Primo Hammocks from ENO

Posted on

Hey, Hammock Lovers!

Here at Everything Summer Camp, we’re extremely excited to now be carrying the brilliant hammocks from the awesome brand name ENO—Eagles Nest Outfitters. It was 20 years ago that the Pinholster brothers co-founded this incredibly successful and recognizable brand name. To go back and look at the rocky start they had, it’s surprising that this brand ever lasted more than a few years!

Pete and Paul started out in the summer of 1999 selling their hammocks out of the back of a minivan at popular music festivals. They did pretty well for such a rickety beginning and it wasn’t long before they were able to acquire an office to conduct their business apart from their van operation. Things were going well but good fortune took a sudden nosedive when an office fire destroyed their entire inventory as well as all their confidence in ever growing the ENO brand.

“It was heartbreaking,” Pete has commented. “We were tempted to give up, call it a loss and move on, but we realized we had started something, maybe something small, but it was gaining support. We moved to Asheville and decided to give it another try.”

So, incredibly, these determined brothers moved past the destruction of their strong start and started again. “We are extremely fortunate for our faithful supporters,” Paul pointed out. “They have really been the catalyst for our growth since the beginning. Our customers inspire us to continue developing the best products to help them relax and enjoy their surroundings.”

Since then, the Pete and Paul Pinholster have incredibly brought their company back with a vengeance! Its name recognition has skyrocketed in the last few years especially and their product quality is unmatched. Check out our ENO selection by clicking here and order your own to discover true relaxation! As always, thanks for reading!
