Camping Gets Glamorous: Shelter Co. in California

Julie Carlson August 28, 2013

It was bound to happen: a California events company takes camping to the next level, with European canvas tents, Pendleton blankets, leather butterfly chairs–sommelier optional.

Husband and wife team Kelsey and Mike Sheofsky are the duo behind Shelter Co., which they call “a pop-up luxury camping service.” The couple has partnered with properties in wine country, Big Sur, Santa Ynez, and Joshua Tree (more venues are on the way) to provide “curated outdoor experiences”; recent happenings have included a backyard birthday party in Brentwood, a wine tasting at Scribe Winery, and a campout at Leonard Lake Reserve.

Tents start at $750 per weekend; go to Shelter Co. for more information.
