Don’t Whine—Line!

Hey, Camp Families!

As you likely already know, summer camp is a wild place. Sure, it’s a safe, supervised environment, but kids are encouraged at camp to expend their energy and with that energy comes a quick pace and reckless behavior. What I’m trying to say is that accidents happen at camp. Gear at Everything Summer Camp is reliable and steadfast against the summer camp lifestyle. But we have options available for added protection for certain products.

Our C&N brand camp trunks are as tough as they come, but no matter how tough we make them, the interior wood will stain from a thoughtless spill or smear as well as damaging scratches and nicks. Enter our new Footlocker Trunk Liner Bag. Dress the inside of your camp trunk for protective purposes when you bring it to camp.

Somewhat like the lining you’ll find in a suitcase, our Liner for C&N Trunks is actually thicker and more durable than your typical liner. It’s water-resistant too for protective reassurance. Made of nylon and very durable, this protective Trunk Liner attaches to the interior easily with ten simple screws.

We offer two different sizes of these Footlocker/Trunk Liner Bags—one for our Happy Camper and another which is given dual fastening locations so it’s equipped to line your UnderGrad Trunk as well as the Graduate Trunk. Just as easily as it attaches, you can remove this Liner Bag for a simple cleaning when required.

Bring convenience to keeping the interior of your camp trunk tidy and clean with our Footlocker/Trunk Liner Bag—a new addition to our Trunk Accessories. Keep the beautiful interior birch plywood out of harm’s way and treat your trunk to this protective TProtective for your trunk on the inside, get a Footlocker/Trunk Liner Bag.runk Liner!

The fourth-bestselling series for kids ever published, Choose Your Own Adventure books give kids interactivity with choices that lead to different outcomes. But how did this great concept for books come to be? The Choose Your Own Adventure Brand puts out amazing books and adventures!Well, it all started at summer camp!

Ray Montgomery worked with his wife, Shannon Gilligan. Knowing the importance of experiential learning, they introduced their boys, Anson and Ramsey, to the world of summer camp on Lake Champlain! Though Ray never did attend summer camp as a camper, he became a camp counselor at the famous summer camp of Pine Island in Maine.  Behold!--Adventure #1 in the CYOA series!

It was there that Ray first realized that interaction in education was essential to helping kids learn and read. After his days as a counselor, he established his own summer school to introduce kids to similar activities that he imparted at Pine Island.

Devoting a great deal of time and effort to studying the benefits of experiential learning and game theory, Ray eventually came across the idea for books that, in his words, put kids “in the driver’s seat.” Choose Your Own Adventure Books are the only books where the plotline depends on choices that the reader makes. Growing since their start in 1979 check out titles from this series for yourself!

Escape to worlds of intriguing and interactive tales in science fiction, fantasy, and adventure where the ending of the story depends on decisions that YOU make! Then, ‘reread’ the story making different decisions and the story’s outcome will turn out entirely different! Perfect for rainy days and reading before bed, have a look through our excellent selection of the adventures in this book series. And, as always, thanks for reading.

Play Some Games Freestyle

Hey, Campers!

As we inch our way toward warmer weather here in the northwestern area of Wisconsin—the place where Everything Summer Camp is based—we get more and more excited about all of our outdoor items. While we sell a few toys, games, or activity books that make for entertaining indoor use, most of what we sell has to deal with camping gear in the great outdoors.

Freestyle BocceIndoor Bocce is a blast! Play it outside too!
This game set includes six, nylon throwing balls and one target ball filled with pellets. There’s also a cinch-shut mesh nylon pouch. The Target Ball is randomly thrown and players then take turns to toss their Throwing Balls and aiming as close to the Target Ball as they can get. The scoring system is simple: one point for each bocce ball that’s closer to the Target Ball than your opponent’s closest ball. If you’re talented enough to toss a Throwing Ball with enough accuracy that it creeps up and rolls to a stop and touches the Target Ball, that counts for two points.

Freestyle HorseshoePlay it inside, play it outside---it's all good.
A longstanding classic, this set of Freestyle Horseshoes includes four full-size rubber horseshoes, two rubber mats, two indoor stakes, two outdoor stakes, and a carrying bag with instructions. Game play is simple: players take turns tossing their horseshoes, trying to ring one around a stake. If a horseshoe lands within six inches of a stake, it counts as one point, if both of your horseshoes are closer than your opponents’ you get two points, and if you ring a stake with your horseshoe, it counts as three points.

Running: the original First-Aid

Hey, History Buffs!

We enjoy learning about the histories of many different things on this Blog, but most of all, we like looking into the stories of all the different pieces of camping gear and other camp supplies that we offer on our online shop. And today, we’ll be looking into the history of First-Aid Kits.
They've come a long way, but this is what original first-aid kits looked like.
First-Aid Kits are compact containers of medical supplies used to deliver treatment in times when a doctor cannot be reached. First-Aid supplies typically include disposable sterile gloves, an assortment of bandages and dressings, two sterile eye dressings, tweezers, and safety pins.

They’re extremely handy to have around, but there was a time when they didn’t exist.

Before First-Aid Kits were sold in the market, people had to fend for themselves when it came to traveling with the proper supplies that might be needed as well as knowing how to assist an injured person. The first thing people did when somebody was injured was to take off running in search of a doctor—assuming there was a doctor within a couple miles.

Back in 1888, a man named Robert Wood Johnson was traveling on a Colorado train moving west. Robert was an outgoing person and, eager for someone to talk to on his travels, he struck up a conversatiCheck out these old first aid kits!on with another passenger on the train. This passenger happened to be the chief surgeon of the Railway.

In this conversation, Robert learned that the railroad workers were injured rather frequently and that medical help was often too far away to provide timely help. It wasn’t uncommon for bystanders to make attempts at moving the injured person and ending up accidentally doing more harm than good in the process, the doctor told him.

This conversation gave Robert the idea to market containers that held the contents for emergency medical treatment. In the same year, Mr. Robert Johnson—founder of Johnson & Johnson made the first First-Aid Kit. These boxes saved a lot of lives, allowing for workers to be treated and stabilized on the spot until further medical attention could be reached.
Here's some stuff that you should have with you when you make adventurous expeditions out into the wilderness.
Be sure to travel wisely with your own First-Aid Kit from Everything Summer Camp and always be prepared! And, as always, thanks for reading!
