Hi There,

πŸ‘‹ We are Campy, the app for nomads that help you find the perfect camping spot.

πŸ€ Our passion centres around helping more people to fall in love with a natural way of life. To connect with one another and discover the wonders of the great outdoors.

🚐 We work every day to bring campers closer to places that mean the most to them, and share their experiences together.

πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦ Using the experiences of thousands of travellers before you, we make it easy for you to have the best trip imaginable. We work continuously to enrich the community and travel to more wonderful places.

πŸ• Our goal is to be the go-to app for every European camper. We listen to our community and constantly strive to be the best assistant for their dream camping experiences, reflecting their passion for great outdoor adventures.

This is our story…

πŸ• More and more of us are venturing into the great outdoors, as 1 in 25 Europeans are now heading out on camping trips. It's to do with finding a slower pace of life. To find yourself by getting away from it all.

🌳 We all know the world’s getting faster. More and more of us are escaping the dizzying digital world to reconnect with ourselves and tune in to the rhythms of nature by heading out in campers, caravans or motorhomes. As we do, we are connecting with each other.

🚐 Gijs de Beer was someone in need of a good road trip. His previous start-up had rapidly scaled, leaving him burned out and feeling out of touch with his own values. But being a digital designer, as he headed out camping with his partner, he saw a way to create an app that spoke to him about what he was experiencing. He knew it could be something easy-to-use, while also linking people to places and adventures they love. He noticed a way for them to connect with each other. It was at that moment his passionate pursuit of camping and ability to create beautiful digital experiences merged. Campy was born.

πŸ’¬ Campy exists to support a rapidly growing community of nomads. It provides a way to find the perfect spot for the night and share recommendations as you find undiscovered treasures.

πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦ Campers are an original and diverse tribe, from motorhome and caravan owners, to glampers, to campers pitching up in an old canvas tent. Hikers, kayakers, anglers, climbers and travellers all use camping as a way to leave the crowd behind and find space on their own. Some want to live their whole life on the road, while others just want to live as much as they can outdoors. Camping is a way for you to find ease in whatever makes you happy.

βœ… Campy is distinguished from general search platforms by filtering precisely the information for whatever makes the perfect camping trip: depending on whether you are using a vehicle or tent, staying with a dog, need a power hook-up, a good shower, or want a great spot to climb or fish.

🀝 Our app – and the community it provides access to – is a companion for all these adventures. It is known for being smooth, easy to use, and loyal to the campers who use it. Our passion for camping drives the whole project.

🫢 But at the root of it all, we do not just want people to go camping. We want them to fall in love with the immensity of nature. To find themselves again and again, and connect with that primal chord that runs through nature and all of us. Something that seems so much easier to find when we get away from the busyness and embrace ease, simplicity and immense landscapes.

Or at least, that’s how we see it.

Who is building Campy?

πŸ§‘β€πŸŽ¨ The hipster

Gijs de Beer is a designer and father of two. He has a track record of building beautiful digital experiences for people and following his passions as far as he can. One day, while driving his camper van, his passions and profession merged as he had the idea of building a camper app. His favourite place to be in is a camper, a tent by the mountains or the sea, falling into awe.

🀹 The hustler

Laurens van Mierlo was raised in a family of entrepreneurs, his career has evolved through finance, commerce and marketing to make him the all-around business thoroughbred that he is today. Getting involved in Campy meant realising his dream to be an entrepreneur in an agile and fast-moving start-up. Laurens loves to go hiking with his wife and their Australian Shepherd in the Swiss Alps and Dolomites. Camping in the mountains makes him feel the most humbled by the vastness and power of nature.

πŸ§‘β€πŸ’» The hacker

Boudewijn was five weeks old when his parents took him camping. Almost every holiday has been spent camping since then. He is never happier than when on a mountain bike, such as on a recent trip with friends in the Italian Alps. At 13, he started programming, entranced by the endless possibilities of what the internet and computers could do. He has since built a career using software innovation to further people’s communication skills. When Campy came knocking, it felt like the ideal merge between technology and humanity that he had somehow always been looking for.
