Louisville, CO (November 18, 2015) – From the innovative minds at Canaima Outdoors comes an all-new treetop hideout destined to take backyards by storm. Launching on Kickstarter, the TreePod is a treehouse alternative that goes anywhere and is designed to enable outdoor fun for children and adults alike.

Garnering a collective 50 years of outdoor industry knowledge and know-how, the recreation pros at Canaima Outdoors developed the TreePod to bring the magic of a treehouse to backyards everywhere. Even where there are no trees, the available TreePod Stand creates a backyard adventure space like no other.“The TreePod is lightweight, portable and fully removable, it’s the perfect solution for those who do have the time or resources or do not want to go through the hassle of building a permanent treehouse,” explains Ricardo Bottome, CEO of Canaima Outdoors. “As a parent of four, the TreePod has become a favorite and a fixture in our backyard.”

The Kickstarter campaign launches November 18, 2015 with the goal of raising $50,000. Design, testing and prototyping are complete and the TreePod is ready to move into production. Kickstarter funds will be used to pay for molds, raw materials, packaging and additional costs of taking the TreePod from prototype to backyard staple.

Contributions to support the Kickstarter are offered at multiple levels. Benefits for supporters include early-bird specials, limited colorways and custom printing. Support levels with and without the TreePod Stand are available as are levels that include lighting. An unlimited number of supporters can opt for a pre-purchase price of $240. The initial TreePod production run will ship in the spring of 2016.

The TreePod was designed to maximize fun, simplicity and safety. Parents and kids alike will enjoy the opportunity to spend more time outdoors with the TreePod set up in their yard or taken with them on a camping trip. Simplicity of use offers easy set up and take-down, making it tree-friendly. Safety from an over-engineered design ensures piece of mind.

Built from durable nylon and aluminum framing, the The TreePod affixes to any hanging point via durable webbing straps and a steel quick link. The fabric is weather resistant and treated with a durable water repellent for all-weather fun while a UV-coating offers additional protection from the sun’s rays.

More information on the innovative TreePod, including the product introduction video and the opportunity to back the campaign are available on the Kickstarter page at Media inquiries can be directed to Patrick Brown at Pale Morning Media by email at
