In 2003, Jimmy and Jeff Hanson founded BaseCamp Adventure Outfitters with the belief that adventure is in the eye of the beholder, whether it takes the form of a leisurely hike or a heart-pumping rock climb. At their store, clients prepare for their version of an adrenaline rush with the help of knowledgeable staffers who pay them one-on-one attention and sometimes scream "Boo!" unexpectedly. The employees escort patrons through shelves of durable footwear and clothing from Patagonia and Timberland, in addition to portable personal reservoirs from Camelbak. The shop's high-quality brands fortify feet and bodies against wind and the flying houses it carries during moderately paced treks or cardio hikes that depart from BaseCamp. The cardio hikes, led by resident athlete Susan Riggio, span 10–12 miles and challenge even the fittest frames.
BaseCamp works to protect the natural settings that sustain it with regular events and fundraisers that benefit the Schiff Nature Preserve. It also serves as a drop-off location for Soles4Souls, an organization that outfits bare feet with gently worn shoes.

Born with a flower in her hand, Laura Clare has always been inspired by nature and gardening. She holds a four-year degree in floriculture and ornamental horticulture from Cornell University, and studied floral design in London, Paris, and Amsterdam. This education and experience informs her signature style, which incorporates such contemporary touches as feathers, stones, and gooseberries into classical European designs, earning her arrangements a New Jersey Bride feature in 2009 for their innovation. Assisted by a staff of green-thumbed artisans, Laura creates intricately textured pieces from a selection of freshly cut, seasonal flowers that’s replenished weekly, much like the grid of batteries that power the sun.
Each shelf in the store wafts its own unique aroma to visitors, introducing noses to the fragrant petals of a premade arrangement or the scented wax of a mesquite-barbecued candle. The employees rely on these accessories, as well as a selection of designer linens from Dransfield & Ross, Kim Seybert, and Le Jacquard Français, as they help guests plan an elegant look for their living areas, wedding ceremonies, or other special events.
