About

STAY UPDATED @ www.Campcaddy.com and signup for project updates.  

Thank You to everyone who supported the Camp Caddy. While we did not meet our funding goal this time we fully intend to pursue our Camp Caddy dream.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

We couldn't find anything on the market that even compared to our idea! After years of research and design, camp cookery has finally caught up to the 21st century. 

Rather than spending weeks preparing for camping, days packing up for camping and hours at the campsite cleaning up and organizing your gear, we have developed a product that does all this for you! You can now plan a last minute camping trip and be totally prepared with our grab and go camp kitchen.

Not only does it store and organize everything for you, it also allows you easy access to all your gear while cooking up a meal. How often do we all get frustrated digging through totes to find that can opener we’re sure we packed along or the flipper for our burning pancakes. You can now have all this convenience right at your fingertips.

Check out these other great features of our grab and go camp kitchen and prepare to be amazed at all the simplicity it offers:

The entire unit is lightweight made from injection molded plastic with aluminum features. The aluminum top makes it heat resistant and easy to clean. The box stores all your kitchen gear all year round so you no longer have to worry about scrounging through boxes and running into unwanted rodent surprises.

Converts from storage box to camp kitchen in just seconds with the easy release aluminum legs designed for one person set up. 

Built in bottle opener on spice rack is just one of the many little touches that make this a well thought out design.

Built in towel rack is another great feature!

Built compact to fit in the trunk of a standard car.

Adjustable shelving and accessory storage box built right in.

Wheels and handle for easy handling. 

Other Great Uses for the Camp Caddy:

  • Craft Table
  • Farmers Market/Trade Show Table
  • Tailgating
  • Picnics
  • Tupperware/Mary Kay/Scrapbook type parties
  • Anywhere you require portable storage and a table top!

Our Story:

We share a love and a passion for the great outdoors, especially camping.  However, our camping trips became stressful and a lot more work once kids entered the picture. When we built our first wooden camping box, we were so impressed with the organization it offered that we got it into our heads that every camper could benefit from this concept. However, we knew the limitations of our wood model, so started looking into properly designing a plastic version that could offer more features and more flexibility.

After testing out many different ideas over the past 3 years on Google Sketch-up and wood prototypes, we came up with some tried and tested dimensions for our future Camp Caddy. We shared these plans with various Industrial Designers and hired Fig 40 out of Toronto who shared our passion for our product and who worked well with our ideas. We are thrilled with the result!

We now have a patent pending, a working prototype and most of all a passion for our product! Please support us and bring our dream to reality!

Now What?

With a successful kickstarter campaign, we will be getting started on tooling and manufacturing the Camp Caddy. We have professionals lined up …All kickstarter supporters will be kept up to date on the production and manufacturing of the Camp Caddy through email.

Our Timeline:

  • October/November: Kickstarter campaign and getting ready for tooling, mail out postcards for those who specified they want this as a Christmas gift
  • December: Finalizing design and tooling, continue to sell on website 
  • January: Tooling built and tested
  • February: Place order for manufacturing
  • March/April:Manufacture product and have first orders ready to ship out to Kickstarter customers
  • May: All pre-order(kickstarter) customers should have product for camping season 2015

Finalizing Design:

When we mention how we’d like to finalize design, there are no major changes that we plan on making. The prototype helped us recognize a few minor improvements we’d like to make such as designing the interior with more flexibility. This includes incorporating as much intelligence as we can into the molded plastic such as built in hooks/holes/ridges for future accessories, drawers, dividers,etc. making the final product very adaptable. We will keep all supporters posted on improvements we work on before final tooling. We will continue to work with our designers at Fig 40 to make this a premium quality product that exceeds expectations!

This is one of the renderings of different organization options we are currently working on.

Why should I purchase on Kickstarter?

By purchasing a unit through kickstarter, not only will you be receiving a quality product at a discount of the retail price ($275-$300+/unit) but you will also be receiving one of the very first camp caddies in time for the 2015 camping season! When we pre-sell 1000 units, not only does it tell us there is a demand for this product but it also enables us to purchase the tooling necessary to manufacture the first batch of camp caddies. It’s a win-win for both of us! NOTE: Even if you commit to pre-purchasing a unit, you will NOT be charged if we do not reach our funding goal of selling 1000 units. That’s the beauty of kickstarter!

Risks and challenges

With such a great concept and even greater design, nothing would be more disappointing than to see that we are unable to execute our plan. We have therefore put so much time, money, and research in ensuring that we plan properly for our Kickstarter campaign and hire the right designers and manufacturers to fulfill the demand.These are the risks and challenges that we could possibly face and will be prepared for:
MANUFACTURING COSTS: Manufacturing a project of this size requires a great deal of tooling which costs a great deal of cash. We are using very conservative figures in determining the cost of tooling and have used estimates of a local manufacturer but until we have finalized a design and prototype and finalized where we will have our product manufactured (preferably North America), we can only estimate costs.
MEETING DEADLINES: Timing is not always in our hands. We have given ourselves a very generous timeline allowing room for unforeseen issues. We will do our best to have this product out to our customers in time for the following camping season, our goal being May 1.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: A project of this size can be costly to ship internationally. We have therefore, designed it with a one time set up to allow for compact shipping. Any fees associated with international shipping will be the responsibility of the customer.
