Shops We Love: Camp Lifestyle + Coffee Co.

Whistler, B.C. calls to mind family camping trips with tree-lined trails and spruce-scented mountain air. It’s this idyllic view of Whistler that Lynn Gentile and Martin Stockley had in mind when opening Camp Lifestyle + Coffee Co. last summer. Their shop just south of Whistler Village is divided into four sections: a main retail space (Camp Collective) with lifestyle products, an espresso bar (Camp Grounds) pouring local 49th Parallel coffee, an outdoor gathering place (Camp Site) and a second-level loft (Camp Home) for artisanal products.

“We choose items that are beautiful and natural, yet vibrant. It’s very West Coast,” Lynn says. To that extent, everything for sale has a story, from small-batch Woodlot candles made by hand in Vancouver to bicycle-print pint glasses from Colorado’s craft-obsessed Vital Industries, as well as Lynn’s own line of whimsical camp products.

Located at 1066 Millar Creek Rd. Whistler.
