Include the Veer Basecamp


Veer designed the Basecamp to give kids a safe and shady spot of their own at any destination, whether on the beach, field or just the back yard. Basecamp is different Ė a blend of high performance, cutting edge design and ultimate safety. A playard reimagined with attention to the little details to make it Veer-worthy and unique. We ended up with a Basecamp that requires no assembly, has one step open and fold and unlimited 360 views, does not have any hard head-knocking surfaces, includes a UPF 50 coated sunshade that is cool and shady, provides full protection from insects, and even anchors for both grass and beach. Finally, so there's one less thing to carry Basecamp can be attached to the Cruiser or hang over the shoulders.

Awesome Tent

This tent is awesome! We use it all the time both indoors and out. It makes a great place for some quiet time when needed, but provides plenty of shade for your little one when we take it outside. Would recommend to anyone!

This tent is so convenient and easy to set up and take down. It only takes a seconds. it comes in a bag that connects to your veer wagon which makes it so easy pulling it on the beach. The kids love it. Even indoors they play in it.
exactly what I needed!

I searched for what felt like months for an outdoor baby container that was easy to set up, comfortable for my child, and provided legitimate UV protection. this tenant checks all those boxes. I docked one star only because I wish it was a little larger, which would allow for it to be used longer. However my child and I can both fit in this tent comfortably so itís perfect for him at 8 months. Itís great quality and doesnít feel flimsy at all. set up and take down couldnít be easier. WELL worth the price for the peace of mind it brings on sunny days (mom is a skin cancer survivor!).
  • easy to set up and take down, sturdy, good UV protection
Best Uses
  • outdoor play
  • could be a little bigger

We got the basecamp for beach trips and used it for the first time last weekend. The way it attaches to the veer is very convenient and the set up/break down is the easiest of any tent/sun canopy we've ever owned!
Not worth the money
By JoyN

This is crazy expensive for how small it is. It is for sure easy to set up and fold back up but $179 plus the price of the mat is ridiculous IMO. I canít say anything about durability yet since weíve only used it twice. We got it because we have the veer wagon and thought it would be cool to match. I would return if I could and get another brand which does the same thing for less.

Great addition to our Veer Cruiser

We already had a Veer Cruiser and wanted a quick pop tent for the beach. We have very active 10 month old twins, and needed them to be contained, shielded from the sun and bugs. It worked perfectly for us. It assembles very quickly. I'd recommend practicing disassembling it before heading outdoors. We were at the beach for our first go with it and had a little trouble folding it up.

Great accessory whether or not you own the Cruiser. Tent is easy to set up and break down. I will say the mesh is very thin and my order came with holes in it. Albee sent me a replacement and that too, after one use, had a hole it. Still like it but deducting a star!
  • Easy to set up and break down
  • Keeps mosquitos out
  • Optional sun shade great for sunny days
  • Very delicate mesh
So easy to use

I love this basecamp! It is so easy to use. I love that itís all one piece that pops open and shut. No poles to insert or fumble with. And itís more compact and sturdier than the pop up tents held up by those bendable/collapsible thin wires. The built in inside and outside pockets to store stuff are handy. The storage bag is super easy to use too. Weíve used this at the beach and inside the house on rainy days.
Seriously the best tent/play yard I’ve ever seen!
By S

I was a bit hesitant to purchase Basecamp since itís a bit pricy. I will say now that I am so glad I went ahead and bought it! It is ingeniously designed and very well built. It literally sets up in a second. It takes longer for me to unclip the strap then it does to set it up. Break down is just as easy and super fast. It comes with sand bags, tent stakes, and a sun cover with upf protection. Itís not massive since it is designed mostly as a play yard for younger children, but I have no problem sitting inside with my little guy and I am 5í9. There is easily enough room for 2-3 children to happily play inside. The mesh is very fine and keeps mosquitos and other obnoxious flying critters out. It also keeps out sand that blows (or gets kicked) around. Super handy that it clips onto the side of our Cruiser wagon. This is the nicest tent/play yard Iíve ever seen - well done Veer!
