Portable Tree Tents Perfect for Summer Camp Overnights

Summer camps are perfect locations for tree houses because they have plenty of trees and campers anxious to climb and sleep in them. And while many camps have tree houses, plenty aren’t lucky enough to have one already or the budget to build one.

A London-based startup could be changing that with a portable tree tent that would not only be awesome for camp overnights but as a way to give campers a sleeping in a tree house experience on a shoestring budget.

The company, Tentsile, was recently profiled in Fast Company and summer camp consultant Dan Zenkel was quoted in the article talking about how the tree tent makes sense for summer camps.

“A lot of summer camps are offering tree houses to kids to sleep in,” he’s quoted saying. “There’s an opportunity there for these tents.”

Tentsile’s flagship product is a 20-pound tent called the Stingray, which retails for $675 on the company’s website and is also sold on the REI website.
