Lock your door and go Rooftop Camping

 In Blog, Denver Tent Company

Move over glamping, there’s a new trend in town. Literally. Brooklyn based artist Thomas Stevenson has started a new social experiment, combining it with his sculptural art, focusing on what happens when people come together to occupy the same space. The project is called “Bivouac”, a term used by soldiers or mountaineers to describe a temporary camp without tents or cover.

Camping under the city sky

What Sevenson has done is set up camp on rooftops in the middle of the bustling city. Campers sign up for just one night, from 6pm to 9am, where they show up with their sleeping bags, blankets, pillows and food to share with all their new friends. Tents will be provided, but other than that you are basically roughing it, just like you would if you had travelled into the woods or the mountains to set up camp. It’s a great way for city folk to sleep under the stars for one night, while still being able to make it to work the next morning. Of course, there is no shower, so you may want to swing by home before heading to the office.

A new way of connecting to new people

Campers know better than anyone that you relate to people in a different way when you are taken out of your own home and surroundings and placed with a group of strangers in the wilderness, or on a rooftop. The way we talk to each other in the dark, lit only by the stars and the moon in the sky is a lot different that we interact with people at home or at the office. Camping is  a great way to get out of your comfort zone and meet people you would normally never take the time to talk to. Who know’s. Your next BFF could be just a tent away.
