Camp versus camping: Two very different experiences by the same name. Camp is where you go during summers as a tween, a sort of massive extended sleepover in the woods with babysitters called "counselors." At camp, you can expect rules and organized play, singing and treats. To go camping, however, is a different thing—you might pack the trunk of your Subaru full of tents, food, tarps, flashlights, water, enamel cups, socks, and more, but not an actual trunk (those belong to camp).

Camp is about friendship. Camping is about the gear (and yes, nature and time with family and getting dirty, too). And so even though this week is a celebration of the former, we couldn't resist rounding up our favorite camping gadgets and gizmos from our Shop to celebrate. You might not send your teenager off to camp with a new set of enamelware plates, but aren't you glad to know we have some?
