It was bound to happen: a California events company takes camping to the next level, with European canvas tents, Pendleton blankets, leather butterfly chairsâ€”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.
