Moms And Daughters Jump Into Fun At KEEN Kids Camp Moxie
Designer Mel Lay is the founder of SandiLake Clothing, creating hand-printed designs here in Portland, Oregon. KEEN Kids recently invited her and her daughter to join us at Camp Moxie, our first-ever mom-daughter weekend away at Camp Collins, in Gresham, Oregon.
A couple of weeks ago, we collaborated with KEEN Kids to empower girls and their moms while promoting KEEN’s new collection for girls called Moxie. I am a KEEN lover myself, and raising children in the Pacific Northwest requires great shoes to hike, play, and be outside in. When asked to join in the collaboration, I was thrilled! We started in on the design of an awesome t-shirt for the all-girls camp they were hosting this month, as well as some logo tote bags.
And then KEEN Kids invited me and my daughter to join Camp Moxie for the weekend!
It was SUCH A blast. With her Moxie KEENs on her little feet, my daughter Scout went down the zipline all by herself, climbed a rock wall, and had an egg smashed on her head in front of the rest of the camp! Over the weekend I saw her shine in ways I never have before, and I feel like I see her in a whole new light! We encouraged each other, and raised each other up as moms, and as women. It was beautiful.
