Today, we’re spotlighting our latest addition of brands to our Toiletries Department—Clean Trek—a brand dedicated to personal hygiene products that create some convenience for summer campers during their wilderness adventures.

Fans of the outdoors themselves, the folks that built Clean Trek from the ground up—their passion for outdoor adventures is what led them to founding their brand. They loved spending entire days outside. But they didn’t like smelling as though they had. And so they were inspired to devise a solution for taking care of your body odor when you’re trekking the wilderness and there’s no shower available.

Introducing a line of products that tend to one’s cleanliness as well as skin nutrition, Clean Trek went into business when they created their solution. With a line-up of gear spray, body wash, body wipes, and more, Clean Trek has built their products on eco-friendlinThese wipes are way convenient when you're on the ol' dusty trails.ess and lasting odor elimination.

They quickly separated themselves from forgettable footwear brands when they came out with their iconic Z/Sandals—designed for full adjustability and unrivaled traction on land as well as water. With this release and a continued application of simplicity, versatility, comfort, and durability, Chaco redefined themselves as leaders in performance footwear.

Wear your Performance Armour Under…

Hey, Camp Folks!

At Everything Summer Camp, we strive to provide our customers with only the best selection in camping gear. Shop superior quality from trusted brand names like Speedo, Burt’s Bees, and Smartwool on our eclectic online store. And we just recently made an exciting addition to our excellent brands we offer! Now find Under Armour products on our shop.

Founder of Under Armour, Kevin Plank was a former special teams captain wUnder Armour is our latest addition to our awesome camping gear brands.hen he played for University of Maryland. He took an idea that he initially had on the football field one day and turned it into a revolutionary industry that would forever-change the clothing that athletes wore!

Back in his playing days, Plank hated having to change his sweat-soaked cotton T-shirts over and over again during two-a-days—that is, when a team or individual player trains twice at two different times throughout a single day. He wanted performance wear that would see him through his games, his practices, and his workouts.

Determined to find a solution, he eventually decided to set out to create his own. He embarked on massive research and discovered the athletic benefits of synthetic fabrics. And, from there, he designed a T-shirt that he engineered with moisture-wicking performance fibers. The shirt was made to keep athletes cool, dry, and light in the most brutally hot conditions.

It was the first HeatGear® Tee. By the time he turned 23, he had unofficially launched his new company which he appropriately named Under Armour. The business may have operated from out of his grandmother’s basement and he may have traveled the East Coast, selling his T-Shirts from the trunk of his car, but he knew he had started something big.

After his first year, Kevin generated $17,000 in sales! The next year, he went to work developing his next invention—ColdGear® fabric to keep athletes warm and dry and light. Soon after, he came out with his AllSeasonGear® clothing line. By the time he was 25, Kevin moved into new headquarters and warehouse (a step up from his grandmother’s basement).

Kevin Plank recognized a problem and when he couldn’t find a solution—he created one. Through hard work and a good amount of determination, Kevin took his desires and made a difference in the comfort that athletes can dress in during their performances. Check out our wide selection of quality clothing and other camping gear from Under Armour right here. And, as always, thanks for reading!

How Well Can You See in the Dark?

Hey, Camp Fans!

We strive to carry the best brands of the best products for all the camping gear we carry here at Everything Summer Camp. That’s why we’re sharp on scouting for the newest trending brand names. We look for brand names that stand out like the innovative brand called Nite Ize. These leaders in the lighting industry question what a flashlight really needs to be.
Check out the story of this great Nite Ize product.Endowed with resourceful and creative minds, this company introduces new ideas to practical products for people who lead active lifestyles—perfect for the routines that keep kids on their feet at summer camp.

The idea first hit the founder of Nite Ize, Rick Case, when he was hiking a mountain with a friend and their poor quality headlights from the 80’s started to fail them in the darkness of the wee hours of the morning. Luckily, Rick remembered a small flashlight he had in his pocket. He took it out and held up to the side of his head.

These flashsticks are great for summer camp convenience!That’s when he had the thought, “Why not just turn this into a headlamp?”

When Rick first launched Nite Ize, it certainly saw humble beginnings. It was 1989 when the company first started their operation, working from a small cabin—only 500 square feet somewhere off away in the mountains of Boulder, Colorado.

But this company grew itself quickly and has made a name for themselves in the less-than-30 years that they’ve been around. They proudly developed their business, making an addition to their initial facility. They now have another building in Boulder—their 90,000 square foot Global Distribution Center.Nite Ize Flashlights are crazy powerful!

Creating quality products with a healthy glow—Nite Ize can brighten the darkness at summer camp! And we’re happy to supply our customers with the 3 in 1 LED FlashStick as well as the 3 in 1 LED Flashlight from this excellent brand name. Check out this flashlight and glowstick and, as always, thanks for reading!

Burt the Beekeeper

Hey, Camp Fans!

Everything Summer Camp—we’re the home of C&N Footlockers. And while we pride ourselves on the nearly indestructible footlocker trunks we manufacture, right here out of Boyd, Wisconsin, we’re also proud to carry all of the quality products that we do from trusted brand names like Columbia, Woolrich, and Kelty. Another excellent brand you can find on our online shop is Burt’s Bees!
The logo for the company he and his bees started.
Burt’s Bees is the story of a man, Burt, and his bees. It’s about as simple as that. Except for the fact that Burt was no businessman, yet, along with his bees, Burt was creating a high quality product that was meant for the world to enjoy. Instead, he was selling his honey to friends and locals. After all, Burt had no idea how a simple apiarist like himself could reach the masses.

Enter Roxanne Quimby. Burt’s Bees was born when this artist from Maine, met Burt Shavitz who was tending to his beehives. They became fast friends and she was thrilled one day when Burt generously gifted her leftover beeswax from his hives for candle making. She added a few key ingredients and quickly had a sellaBurt's Personal Care Productsble product.

Roxanne’s candles led to a plethora of personal care products such as the infamous Burt’s Bees Lip Balm and the Herbal Insect Repellent, both of which can be found right here. Burt’s Bees took off with wild popularity and success beyond Burt’s wildest dreams!

Featuring kid-safe, quality products that are perfect for skin care at summer camp as well as the one and only, iconic Burt himself who stars as the company logo, grab these kid-friendly and chemical-free products for your camper during their camp stay this summer. For more information on the startup of Burt’s Bees, check out the video below and, as always, thanks for reading!

Smartwool for smart feet!

Hey, Camp Fans!

Here at Everything Summer Camp we pride ourselves in the quality products that we offer. Of course, we take full credit when it comes to the C&N Footlocker trunks that we manufacture ourselves ever since our humble beginnings, but we give absolute credit to those whose quality products we offer on our online shop.These beauties from Smartwool are now here at ESC!

Last week, I posted about the nine pairs of Smartwool socks we’re now offering. Smartwool makes their socks of Merino Wool (the preferred sheep’s wool to use) because their socks are the best. You can now find Smartwool socks for Women and Kids at Everything Summer Camp as well as socks that are meant for the varied adventures that you’re sure to have throughout your summer camp stay.

Smartwool’s manufacturing process is an interesting one as it doesn’t start in a warehouse or laboratory. It begins somewhere in the mountains of New Zealand when, one day, the herds of sheep there get a haircut. Smartwool shears 300,000 sheep per year. Coming off the sheep greasy, the wool is cleaned, combed, and spun into yarn which is then made into amazing Smartwool products like SOCKS!The grazing merino are happy sheep.

These guys use Merino sheep wool—the preferred sheep wool because of its unmatched comfort and softness. Merino sheep whose wool goes to Smartwool, live happy, peaceful lives in their natural habitat. Smartwool knows that happy sheep will make for unparalleled wool and thus and unparalleled product. Happy sheep = happy customers.

The people at SThis here is a drawing of a happy sheepmartwool are smart. Not only about the way they make their products, but also the relationships they form with their business partners. They only work with a select group of businesses that they trust. It’s an honor for Everything Summer Camp to offer their amazing socks on our summer camp store.

Read About A Great Company-Triple T

Hey, Blog Buddies!

Here at Everything Summer Camp, we don’t like to brag which is why we talk up and praise the names whose products we offer instead. And today, we have QUITE the name to talk about—the number one leader in recreational outdoor footwear—Triple T, parent company of the Northside brand.northside cheyenne jr

Based in Marysville, Washington Triple T Trading was founded in 1985 (two years prior to the very beginnings of Everything Summer Camp). And in their near-30 years of operation, they’ve made quite an impact in the world of footwear.

The way Triple T sees it, people of all ages should be able to enjoy being out in nature, no matter what the time of year may be. I think most people see it that way too.

That’s why Northside was created, as their tagline indicates—‘just for fun.’ This footwear is made to stand up to all the elements nature has to offer. So no matter where you are or what season it is, you can have your fun in the outdoors.

Whether you’re interested in winter boots, hiking shoes, flip-flops, or sport sandals, all kinds of footwear from Northside are made with the same rugged and reliable construction.

Triple T Trading is a family-owned and family-operated business which is why they feel like their partners should consider themselves an addition to their “brand-family” of Triple T. On behalf of Everything Summer Camp, the feeling is mutual.

Find a great assortment of Northside footwear available at Everything Summer Camp. We’re delighted to carry such quality products from such a great name!

We Should All Thank Nicole Levine

Hey, Silent Sleepers!

Unfortunately, while you’re sound asleep every night, bed bugs are making their claim on the same mattress where you catch your zzz’s. Is there no way to stop the little buggers? Well, there is Bed Bug 911. Available here at Everything Summer Camp is the Hybrid Mattress Encasement as well as the Vinyl Mattress Cover from Bed Bug 911bed bug 911.

What is Bed Bug 911? They’re a leading manufacturer of products concerning bed bugs. But their services don’t end there. Bed Bug 911 also offers their services as bed bug exterminators. What they do is they offer everything you need (be it product or service) in order to get rid of your bed bugs forever!

Founded in 2005, when New York began to panic over their epidemic of bed bugs. Before its existence, president of Bed Bug 911, Nicole Levine was the owner of a different company called Home Clean Home (HCH)—catchy name, huh? Well, this company was soon overwhelmed with customer requests for bed bug treatment. Customers of HCH—residential and commercial—were seeing bed bug infestation like no one had since the 1950’s.

Nicole Levine was aware of the side effects people had to the chemicals and insecticides used for bed bug extermination, causing bad allergic reactions and, in some much more extreme cases, cancer and neurotoxicity. Nicole went straight to work developing an organic line of bed bug sprays and other means of preventing bed bug infestation.

Three years ago, she was celebrated as the Businesswoman of the Year by the New Independent Democrats. She credits her company’s unprecedented success to the importance it places on customer service. We here at Everything Summer Camp are proud to offer products from Bed Bug 911 to make your kid’s summer safe and bed bug-free.

 

Sincerely,

John
