You Can Camp Under The Stars On Governors Island This Summer

Governor’s Island lovely glamping experience is back for a fourth year, and it’s more luxurious than ever before!

Over the years, Collective Governors Island Luxury Camping Retreat introduced plenty of new and exciting amenities that included “live music nights, tarot readings, crafting, morning yoga, bike rentals, chair massages, plenty of lawn games, campfires and cocktails” throughout the season—but this year, the experience is offering even more incredible amenities than years prior.

Collective Retreats

And now, the retreat is officially open for booking as of May 1st, 2021! Amenities for the season include:

  • Daily morning wellness programs including mindfulness sessions, yoga and meditation
  • Air conditioning in all accommodations for those warm New York City summer nights
  • Complimentary Collective Water Taxi Service (from 4-10 pm daily with reservations)
  • Complimentary in-tent Continental breakfast
  • Complimentary individual evening s’mores at the campfire
  • Collective new culinary exploration classes
  • Gourmet dining and cocktail service with private dining hideaways
  • Abundant activity space designed for comfort
  • And of course, unparalleled views of the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan

The accommodations feature three options that visitors can choose from: Summer Tent, Outlook Shelter, and Journey Tent. While all three spaces feature the essentials (air conditioning and electricity) and include complimentary activities, there are a handful of differences between each tier.
