It's time to save big on Winter Coats!


Here's the deal: You can take 50% off any Winter Coat in the store, all you need to do is spend $50 on other winter accessories.

That's it. We want to sell you more hats, mitts, gloves, neck warmers, thermal underwear and winter boots, so we're offering you 50% off your winter coat to convince you to shop with us! As with any deal like this there are a couple of caveats to make sure this deal works for everyone.
  • All winter coats which are sold at 50% off are Final Sale.
  • The $50 qualifying spend is the before-tax, after any other discount total.
  • The $50 Qualifying spend is per coat. For example, to purchase two coats at 50% off, your Qualifying spend would be $100
  • The $50 Qualifying spend must consist entirely of items listed as Winter Accessories, as judged by Camp Connection. (Winter-like items which we carry all year may be excluded from this offer.)
  • Any return or exchange request on items that are part of the $50 qualifying spend must maintain both the $50 minimum and the Winter Accessory caveat. Sizes, colours and like-items may be exchanged with no trouble, but (for example) exchanging winter gloves for tee shirts which we carry all year 'round will not be permitted. Be aware that this may effectively make any items under the $50 Qualifier Final Sale, depending on availability and circumstance.
  • Credit will not be issued for items which are part of the $50 Qualifying spend.
  • This offer begins Nov. 03 2016, and is valid while supplies last. This offer can change or end at any time, without notice.
  • The On-line and In-Store Offer may differ.

Question: Some of these rules seem complicated and unfair - Why are the coats Final Sale, and why can't I get credit or exchange for some of my other items?
Answer: By definition, a 'good deal' has to be 'good' for both parties involved. We are offering you the chance to save big money on excellent winter coats. In return, we want to get you into our winter thermals, our boots, our hats and mitts. We are trying to grow our winter business and this is how we have chosen to do so. If you don't have interest in our other winter accessories, or are unsure about your purchase perhaps this deal is just not for you.

On-line Specific Details: Yes - we have WAY more winter coats available in-store than we do On-Line. Roughly 900 more at this point in the season. The jackets and gear listed on-line are just the tip of the iceberg, and have been chosen because we have sufficient inventory and want to feature those items.

In addition to the details above, please note:
  • Products will appear at full price in your cart. The discount will show on the check-out screen, once you have added enough items to meet the $50 Qualifier.
  • You will be limited to only one coat per order. If you would like to order more than one jacket, place a second order. We will combine orders that are shipping to the same destination
  • Please keep an eye on your inbox once you have placed an order - if we have any questions we might email you

Questions you never asked but wanted to know about our Stone Peak Varsity Clothing*


*Well... we're assuming you wanted to know. And we're pretty proud of the program, so we're going to tell you regardless.

We've carried the Stone Peak Varsity hoods and tees since 1997, but they have never looked so good as they do today! Favorite schools like the University of Michigan, or relative newcomers to the program like the University of California, Berkeley are both super popular, and we are constantly looking to add new schools to our lineup!

Where else can I get these?

The super-soft Stone Peak hoodies are built right here in Canada,  exclusively for Camp Connection. If you want any of the Stone Peak Clothing or Supplies, you'll need to drop into the store, or order on-line!

Why don't you carry MY School?

Licensing. We hold distribution licenses for all of these Universities and Colleges and sometimes getting a particular school on board simply isn't possible. It might also be that we have not been in contact with your school. Send us an email and tell us which one you'd like to see us add next!

Why are some schools not available to ship into the United States?

Licensing. Again.  Some of our distribution rights exclude us from selling into the U.S. Sorry.


Are all of the schools you carry in-store available on-line?

Almost.  There are a couple prints that we just have not gotten to yet - whenever we add a new school or update the program it takes us some time to get them posted. 

What else does Stone Peak make?

You'll be glad you asked!  We carry the Stone Peak flannel pants (These are the best! I am never far from mine!), boxers, watch caps, and the Camp Connection staple - the cotton work socks. (Woolies, to those in the know)

5 Reasons Our Customers Choose Herschel Packs and Accessories!




We’re well into ‘Back-To-School’ mode here. Lunch bags, ice packs, socks, underwear and dorm trunks are flying out the door.  We have a backpack wall that is 20 feet tall, and it’s loaded with all kinds of day and hiking packs, from all different brands.  They are all excellent -we wouldn’t carry them otherwise-  but our Herschel packs (and accessories) seem to be a customer favorite.  Let’s look at why:
 

   1.       Simplicity
These packs are built clean.  No extra dongles and dangly bits. Not a lot of bells and whistles that no-one uses, just simple organizing and storage features that make sense. And even these are tucked away out of sight to keep that clean look.
    2.       Style
With that simplicity of design comes killer style.  Uncluttered, simple style.  Herschel chooses colours and patterns carefully, and ensures they are always on trend. The bags are sleek and subtle with only a quiet brand tag to denote Herschel, so you’re not buying a walking advertisement.


3.       Details
Herschel pays attention to the design details!  Everything from their signature red-and-white lining to the contrasts (or not) of design features.  Stitching is where it should be, laptop / tablet sleeves are soft-lined, and organizing pockets are easily accessible and well laid out.

4.       Quality
When you pay attention to the details, the quality speaks for itself. These bags are tough, the zippers are strong, the stitching is reinforced where it should be, and the quality control is un-matched. 

5.       Warrantee
When you are as confident as Herschel about your quality control, you can do things like offer a ‘Limited Lifetime Warranty’ on manufacturing and material defects. If you have Herschel on your back, Herschel’s got your back!

If you need more reasons to look at a Herschel pack, how about the fact that they are a Canadian company? Or that they are named after a town of 30 people? How cool is that? Whatever your reasons, you can’t go wrong in considering one of these bags to get you through the coming school year – check ‘em out!
