If you have a vision of camping that does not involve roughing it, or are fantasy-planning a birthday/wedding/retreat in some remote, wild land under a blanket of stars, you may have stumbled upon photos of events organized by the founders of Shelter Co.—a Sebastopol, CA-based outfit that stages elaborate parties and retreats with serious style in remote locations—no hotel rooms (or plumbing) required.

The Shelter Co. founders, Kelsey Sheofsky, Maggie Wilson, and Mike Sheofsky have searched far and wide to find camp gear that meets their standards for high-end durability, and are stylish enough for the casual camper, i.e., cute and not too technical. When they came up empty handed, The Get Out—a camping-lite line of tents, chairs, coolers, blankets, and more—was born.

“It’s no surprise that 2020 forced us all to get creative with how we spend our time in and around our homes,” said co-founder and CEO Kelsey Sheofsky. “The silver lining was that we discovered how necessary time in nature is and there are so many easy ways to get outside. We set out to design products that work just as well for sunny hangs on your deck as a weekend-long camping trip.”
