The wave of high-end surf culture is coming, and it is starting at Loge Camps in Westport, WA. After noticing a lack of lodging options that speak to both the culture and access the urban recreationalist is seeking, Johannes Ariens and Cale Genenbacher decided to create the one thing the West Coast of Washington was lacking: a camping spot for everything.
Loge Camps officially opened in Westport, WA in May of this year, and has now created an area for outdoor recreationalists to meet, mingle, and explore the great outdoors of the Pacific Northwest.
To enhance the growing culture of cold-water surfing on the Washington coast, the site’s amenities include wetsuit drying and surfboard storage, a local surf school, and exclusive partnership with Seattle-based evo to house its first ever surf performance demo center, allowing guests to rent and demo surf gear before they buy. Visitors can either stay in covered camping spots, individual rooms, or book space for an RV hook-up. With activities and amenities geared towards surfers, hikers, and outdoor lovers, LOGE’s ability to finally offer a one-stop-shop for surfing, camping, fishing, hiking, and collaboration is exactly what the PNW
On Saturday, August 19, Loge is hosting a Cold Water Film Festival, showing a one-night only premier of Proximity, directed by award-winning filmmaker Taylor Steele and produced by Teton Gravity Research. This event is supported by the Surfrider Foundation, a non-profit environmental organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of oceans, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network.
Loge Camps eagerness to host this one-night premier and involvement with Surfrider Foundation continues to exemplify that Loge Camps was not just built to be a hotel and campsite, but rather a place for likeminded people to discuss environmental advocacy, promote the surf industry, and support emerging artists. Just like an Adult Summer camp, Loge Camps is steering the way for creating a space for outdoor enthusiasts to gather and do much more than camp, fish, bike, and surf.
The film showing is $13, with proceeds benefiting the Westport Skate Park Project. They will also have a live performance from Scott Sullivan music along with some awesome items up for grabs from sponsors – Lib Tech and 10 Barrel Brewing to name a few – through a silent auction and raffle.
