Power of the Right Light

Posted on

Hey, Empowered People!

Essential to every camper’s packing list, light is an important part of every overnight camper’s summer camp experience. We always want to offer the best of the best in child-friendly camping gear products and so we’re proud to offer the powerful light resources from a leading brand in quality lighting gear! MPOWERD is the relatively new brand name on the lighting scene. Check them out!

MPOWERD masterfully combines brilliant quality with a design that’s easy for kids to use. On top of that, they’re conscious of the impact they have on the environment! Always fans of sustainable methods, we knew MPOWERD was an obvious fit for our collection of flashlights and other lighting sources in our camping gear selection.

A brand name that begs the question, ‘Where’d they get that name from?’ They get that a lot. It breaks down like this: M-POWER-D and it stands for Micro Power Design. In a way, this name is a brief mission statement and description of their company goals.

‘Micro,’ because their products are meant to be simple in their portability. ‘Power’ in reference to their environmentally friendly technology. And ‘Design’ since their creations are products of form along with their function. AND, when combined, the name bears a close resemblance that describe the core values that MPOWERD was built upon: making folks feel empowered.

This brand name saw its start in 2012. That was the year when MPOWERD’s principal inventor Jason Alan Snyder created Luci, the first inflatable solar light. Since then, they’ve moved forward and mastered their craft, engineering solar powered products that can retain charge for incredible lengths!

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.

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!

Introducing: Osprey...

Posted on

Hey, Summer Camp Folks!

I’m thrilled to reveal a brand name that we’re very excited to have brought to our online store! Osprey is Pack manufacturer that’s been designing and constructing inventive and premium packs since 1974! Their unflinching dedication to backpacks, duffels, and nothing else but pack accessories has allowed them the capability to focus and really hone in on the perfect craft of their pack construction! Learn about this innovative new brand we've added to our camping gear selection!With a solid history, you can be sure that Osprey has perfected their methods throughout their past 45 years of business. The brand sprouted all those years ago from the desire of one person—Osprey’s founder—to manufacture and utilize functional and secure packs. When he brought his dream to life, Mike Pfotenhauer, insisted that his packs would be made more comfortable, durable, and practical than the other packs on the market.

Named after a large bird of prey also known as a River or Fish Hawk, the Osprey brand plays off the ready-to-travel, lightweight, and sizable characteristics of the raptor itself to play up the features of these innovative packs! Mike ensured only the best quality for his products from the get-go by personally stitching the first lines of custom-fitted packs!

As he grew the Osprey name, his team expanded into a collection of enthusiastic explorers and diligent workers of diverse qualities who all bring something exclusive to contribute. Mike was able to move into the designing department and put together a crew of skilled sewing operators who construct the packs.

Located in Cortez, Colorado, the folks are hard at work, though everyone in this pocket of the world has adopted a slower pace. Still, the landscapes of Osprey’s home base begs onlookers to come explore—the San Juan mountains to the east and desert canyons to the west.

Everything Summer Camp is proud to carry a great selection of high-quality travel packs from the Osprey brand. Ensure your preparedness when you head out for adventure with Packs from our great Osprey selection that you can check out by clicking right here. As always, thanks for reading, Folks!
