Niche Biz: The Lazy Camper

Lazy Camper

Halifax Courier:

A student is camping outside his university for a week to show off his new business idea.

Former Brighouse High School student Jacob Hill, 19, has developed the Lazy Camper – an all-in-one tent he says will take the hassle out of camping.

Jacob, who lives in Southowram, has invested lb30,000 in his business, Shaped Outdoors, after spotting a gap in the market.

He said: “I went to Leeds Festival in a cheap tent I bought from a supermarket and I woke up on the first morning under water.”

Jacob – in the first year of his business development degree at Huddersfield University – went on: “When you are planning a festival visit you tend just to think just about the price of the ticket and buy a poor-quality tent, but I think this is a solution to that.”

The set includes a sleeping bag, camping stool, mess tin, cutlery, water carrier, stove, heavy-duty poncho and toilet seat covers.
