Hey Campers! Happy Friday! Today we celebrate our 20TH Weekend Warrior feature! Wow! We have met so many people, through Instagram, with incredible stories, overcoming some insane obstacles, and still getting outside to live life. It’s just been an incredible journey. Let’s meet #20- Meag & Ben, from @wilddrivelife! Hikers living out of a bus, they have been travelling all over the US with their dog, Moose. Be sure to check out their Instagram, and follow along with the big blue (turquoise?) bus, but FIRST-
Happy Friday, Campers! Did this week just fly by for anyone else? I feel like I blinked and it was Friday! (Love weeks like that- so busy you can’t think straight and then BOOM- it’s Friday.) So, in our usual tradition of celebrating the weekend, we’re featuring another one of our awesome #WeekendWarriors! Meet Jennifer. She is the owner of a super dope company (that you will probably want to bookmark for later) CampRents. It’s a gear rental company for the great adventurer (albeit a budget friendly one)! So let’s get to hear more about Jennifer, and her Weekend Warrior ways…

Meet Chelsea, aka @thehikingmermaid. An adventurer, a traveler, an amazing photographer, and with that kind of handle, how can you not be intrigued? We were! And once we started following, we were not disappointed. She’s got an amazing portfolio, and an amazing job! We tracked her down to find out where this love for the outdoors came from, and where it’s headed. So, ladies and gents, let’s get to know more about The Hiking Mermaid.

3. Where is your next adventure?
Somewhere inside the Rocky Mountain National park! Since I live so close, and do we really ever know for how long we will be in one place for? I made a promise to myself to build a relationship with this park since I do currently live so close! To see it in every season and to watch it grow as time moves on! Looking back through the images I capture really show how the earth is changing with time! <3 I do explore many other places in between but my adventure base would be the RMNP!
Thank you so much, Chelsea, for sharing! As a photographer, I get that our weekend warriors may be more like a weekday warrior, but we get those adventures in, when we can, and as often as possible! Am I right?
Alright Campers, enough reading behind the screen. Now turn it off, and go get lost!
We hope all of our #CampCultureTribe enjoyed their holiday with family and friends, yesterday. We know we sure did. And today we are reflecting on another great year with so much to be thankful for!
At Camp Culture, it’s no secret that we worship the great outdoors, which is why instead of participating in #BlackFriday, we are choosing to #OptOutside.
So, what does it mean to #OptOutside on #BlackFriday? Well, for us, it means that instead of asking our employees to wake up early and work all day, we are encouraging them to take the day to enjoy the simpler, free gifts of nature. It means that instead of asking our awesome customers to stand in long lines, spend more money than they want to, just to buy a bunch of extra stuff they don’t really need- we are asking them to join us in spending the day outdoors.
But won’t we miss out on all the great #BlackFriday sales?
Nah, we’re really not that worried about it. You see, we believe in companies with a conscious, and we know our #CampCultureTribe does, too. It’s not enough to just sell you awesome camp tees and adventure gear at any cost. We believe that it’s our duty as citizens, and as a business to contribute to a better world- one in which we all work to preserve our planet, help our neighbors and prioritize service and good deeds for all.
So, will you #OptOutside with us this #BlackFriday?
