A Look Back at the Fall Harvest Hipcampout

At Hipcamp, we believe people are happier, healthier, and more connected when they spend time outside together (luckily, science overwhelmingly supports this), which is why we regularly go Hipcamping as a team.

On a beautiful, late October weekend, Hipcamp employees and their loved ones gathered at The Camp at Carmel Valley in Northern California for a fall-themed weekend of play, rest, and community in the outdoors. Set on 112 acres at a historic boys and girls summer camp that had been formerly called Douglas Ranch, the site offered endless hours of fun and games from a bygone era, complete with hilarious basketball games, group tennis matches, and lazy poolside lounging. With spacious glamping cabins and plenty of space to pitch our tents, the camp offered something for everyone.

From interacting with horses to stretching together in morning yoga classes, the experience for our team was immersive and memorable. The bonding opportunities on a companywide weekend camping trip are essential to our company’s unique and special culture.

Camp hosts Joy Berry and Jim Flagg created an immensely warm and welcoming experience, kicking off each day by raising the flag at sunrise to the tune of Frank Sinatra (an old camp tradition) and concluding with family-style meals (prepared onsite), live music, and storytelling of the camp’s unique legacy and vision for the future.

We danced, we laughed, we connected with our amazing and inspiring hosts, and of course: spent some quality time outside together.

We’re always on the lookout for engaged, thoughtful teammates who care about making the outdoors more accessible to anyone and everyone. If getting more people outside is something you’re passionate about, please consider joining us!

Hope to see you at the next team campout.
