Welcome to our family-owned, local delivery, virtual shop.
Erica has been making ice cream treats since 6th grade. She entertained her family that summer by creating weekly dessert menus, appropriately named “Erica’s Delight.” When visiting Italy as an adult and then San Diego multiple times, we discovered that gelato tastes even better than ice cream! Erica has made it our hobby to find delicious gelato everywhere we travel. “Happy Camper Creamery” was inspired by our family’s love of camping and our vintage 1975 Boler trailer, Sweet Pea. Erica has been an elementary teacher for 20 years and sweet ice cream treats have been a side passion her entire career. Her students love it too, which is a job perk!
Our daughter Sage overheard us dreaming and talking about the possibility of creating a gelato business. In turn, Sage took colored pencil to paper during one of Reid’s soccer games and created the very first artistic logo concept. It evolved into our distinctive Happy Camper Creamery logo you see today.
