Appealing to a camp-like setting, with atmospheric backdrops, cute cabin structures, colorful trees, and the kind of exterior detail we’ve come to expect from a woodland destination, usually means we have to head somewhere full of fir trees, streams and puffy clouds.
When there is something enchanting about the fresh forest air, and there is innovative planning to put that enchantment into action, the woods can somehow sprout into the town, so the little ones can have the playful outing that they could discover in a wooded setting.
CAMPthe “family experience” company founded on the East Coast in 2018, wanted to bring some of this whimsical woodland wonder to various metropolises, giving kids places to wander, explore, frolic and get creative.
And the newest CAMP outpost just debuted in Century City, a 7,000-square-foot “woodsy” space that’s “part (p)art toy store, part activity destination, and all the good stuff. vibes”.
Outdoor and indoor gear has nine outlets, including destinations in New York, Massachusetts and Texas. Century City CAMP is the company’s ninth location and West Coast flagship.
What can families find in this novel revolving around the traditional toy store?
The CAMP Canteen area is where the shelves of toys, books, and games are, but wait: did that wall over there just move?
He did, indeed. CAMP features a “Magic Door,” a rotating wall giving families surprise entrance to a rotating lineup of cute kid-friendly activities. “Revolving” means these lively tasks will change with the seasons, giving little ones new fun to look forward to on a future visit.
Base CAMP is the first of the adventures to debut, giving kids a chance to “go from cabin to cabin” while enjoying a host of nostalgic pastimes, from crafts to fun dance times. If these activities sound like summer camp, that’s exactly what Base CAMP is: summoning some of that old-school sunshine.
What about the Splatter Room, a popular CAMP feature? Budding artists are encouraged to “stock up on Jackson Pollack” by tossing paint festively onto a canvas (while wearing team-provided splatter gear, of course).
Barbie and RVshare also helped “create unique experiences” for CAMP Southern California, including a Barbie-inspired disco booth.
