A love of the outdoors converging with a passion for problem solving and product development resulted in nCamp. We believe that camping gear should never be a burden, only a tool that places an emphasis on experiencing the outdoors.
Years ago, Dan Cuffaro, an industrial designer and professor, began an exercise as an example for Design Students at the Cleveland Institute of Art. His goal was to identify a problem based on personal experience, observation and inquiry, then to explore solutions, prototype and test. He chose to focus on backpacking and campsite cooking. Some issues that he identified were: cooking while camping often involves carrying bulky hardware and fuel, the struggling to keep utensils clean and the ever-present chance of running out of fuel.
Dan became interested in using wood from the forest as fuel, because it is readily available and the supply is nearly endless. Existing wood-burning camp stoves are bulky because of the nature of a combustion chamber, so he explored ways to reduce bulk, experimented with a collapsible chamber. After a series of prototypes, and lots of testing, he developed and patented a compact wood-burning stove and nCamp was born.
