NEW – Hex Trunk

Posted on

Hey, Camp Fans!

This is the first blog post in which we’ll be showcasing one of the new products we now carry. Blog posts such as this one will not only update you on the new products we’re carrying but will also make your summer camp shopping easier.

The new product we’ll be talking about today is the NEW Hex Trunk. How do you arrive at summer camp sporting the coolest style and newest gear? Bring this trunk.

The Hex Trunk bears a brilliant motif created by our own graphic designer, Meghan. Shades of purple and green decorate this footlocker in clusters and strands of hexagons. It’s methodical, logical, yet cool. We take Meghan’s design and camp-footlocker-hex-trunkhave it specially printed on all ten trunk panels.

It’s one sharp sight to see!

The same size as the popular Happy Camper, the NEW Hex Trunk is as spacious as it is solid! Built to last with C&N quality, it’s lined inside with water-resistant, odorless, and virtually tear-proof liner. The Hex Trunk is magical!

We remain modest people here at Everything Summer Camp. But credit is deserved where credit is due and our camp trunks are simply the best you can find.

Now for a brief history of our business to fully understand what C&N quality means:

Before Everything Summer Camp sold everything you might need at summer camp, it only sold its trademark camp trunks and the accessories directly applied to the trunks. The company wasn’t called Everything Summer Camp back then; it was called C&N Footlockers, named after the owners Craig and Nancy.

Now that we’ve become so much more than just footlockers, we’ve changed our name to something that’s more inclusive and more indicative of what we sell. But since we construct every trunk that we sell right here in our own facility, we still brand each trunk with the C&N Footlockers emblem.

For the last 26 years our footlocker trunks have continued to outdo the competition in terms of both quality of construction and in style. That’s what we mean when we say our footlockers are built to last with durable and dependable C&N quality. That’s why our footlockers are the best.

Set the trends and go with the cool, NEW Hex Trunk for camp this summer!

This Golden Globe Winner went to Summer Camp

Hey, Summer Campers!

The other day on the introduction to this blog, I went over all the different topics we’ll be discussing in our posts. Remember?

Well, today I’m posting one of our summer camp celebrity posts where you’ll read all about which summer camps your favorite celebrities attended.

Considering that in America alone, over 10 million kids are going to summer camp every year, it’s not really that surprising to find out who in Hollywood—and how many of them—went to summer camp when they were younger.

Today we’re talking about the all-star actress, Anne Hathaway who attended Camp Johnsonburg in northwestern New Jersey. Back in her summer camp days, she always thought she would become a nun when she grew up, but as we all know, her future would take her down a very different path.

Though she’d already acted in a few stage roles and appeared in the television series Get Real, Anne hit stardom by age 18 when she brought  Mia Thermopolis to life on the big screen in the Disney film The Princess Diaries in 2001. She then played the same character in the movie’s sequel in 2004.Anne Hathaway

She’s also famous for the roles she played in lots of other movies such as Hoodwinked, The Devil Wears Prada (in which she got to work alongside her idol, Meryl Streep), and Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland which she did in 2010.

Two years later, she played Selina Kyle in the Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises; and in the same year won a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress as Fantine in Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables.

Comparable and reminiscent of such classic actresses as Audrey Hepburn and Judy Garland, Anne Hathaway seems a natural celebrity superstar despite her initial aspirations.

I guess her story just goes to show that you really never can tell. And who knows? Maybe you’ll end up on the big screen and eventually be noted in an Everything Summer Camp blog post about celebrities who attended summer camps when they were little! Until next time, camp fans. As always, thanks for reading!
