Founder of Curated Camp, Jeff Wahl, enjoying a day out on the river.
When we look for ambassadors for Boulder Granola we are always searching for folks who are living life in a way that is unique, inspired and fun. Naturally Curated Camp fits the bill by making it their mission to showcase camp sights, trips and memories that are just a bit more amazing then the run of the mill experience. Join us in welcoming Curated Camp to the Boulder Granola Brand Ambassador Team and then take a look at our Q & A with Curated Camps Founder, Jeff Wahl to learn more about what inspired this idea and where they are headed next.
1) Describe Curated Camp for us:
Curated Camp is a place for people to connect with the elements that make each campsite unique and memorable. We want people to be inspired and to inspire others as they curate their own camp. We want that inspiration to permeate into our everyday lives and lead us to bigger and better adventures.
2) Tell us what inspired you to start Curated Camp?
The impetus for starting Curated Camp was a severe lack of available information on where the best places to camp, hike, backpack, and adventure were. So many times we wanted to find our next piece of inspiration and were left unsatisfied looking at state and federal descriptions of wilderness areas and activities – SUPER DRY and BORING. We wanted to provide a visual and ethereal experience for anyone looking to explore and create their own camping experience through our adventures. We’re just as stoked when someone shows us a new spot or route and we think it should be shared and enjoyed by all who are willing to break out of the routine and curate their own adventures.

3) Describe your next big outdoor adventure:
The next outdoor adventure, that’s on the calendar at least, is a long distance trek through the Grand Canyon and back (South Rim to North Rim to South Rim). A crew of three are planning an unsupported effort at accomplishing this distance in one day. Were definitely not the first to attempt/accomplish this – but were pretty stoked to see if we can handle the mental/physical challenge. +10,000ft of Elevation gain and loss, 44 Miles, and some of the best sunrise/sunset views in the universe. And we get to set up camp at one the greatest national parks we have without the crowds of summer!
4) What interests/inspires/motivates you day to day?
My daily inspiration is the next trip. I’ve got maps up all over the wall of locations I’ve visited or am looking to visit and they let me explore before getting out the door. I think maps are beautiful and there’s just something about them being on your table and ready to plot a route or find a back road. Not all maps are meant to be on a computer screen.
5) Super important – what is your favorite Boulder Granola Flavor and preferred mode of delivery?
My favorite Granola is less about the flavor of the week and more about the context in which I am eating it! Nothing ever manages to taste better than a bag of granola with dried fruit after a 20 mile hike into a beautiful backcountry campsite. But if I had to choose a flavor…it’d be chocolate!
Thanks Jeff! We are so stoked to be working with you and helping spread the word on amazing places to visit and fun things to do!
