For the past year Kent Johnson, the man behind Camp Rockaway have been researching, designing and focusing on what will make camping at Rockaway an amazing experience; and now he’s ready to put a stake in the sand and take the next step towards building one amazing campsite in New York City.
After hurricane Sandy Rockaway has been attacked by creatives looking to help rebuild and revitalize the beach community, with Camp Rockaway being just one of those inspiring projects.
The camp will include safari-style canvas tents carefully situated in a quiet, beautifully landscaped campground overlooking Jamaica Bay. Each tent comes fully furnished; like a hotel (with real beds, crisp white sheets and summer-weight blankets) only lots more fun. Amenities include private fire pits, indoor/outdoor showers and hot tubs overlooking the bay. What else could you ask for?
Help support Kent and Camp Rockaway through his Kickstarter campaign here, and get ready for summers on the beach, just steps from the NYC.
