Platform Tent

Platform tents are popular in boy's & girl's camps because they stand up well against a summer of wind and rain and they are quite durable. But, kids will get bites unless they have protection. Platform tents do not keep out bugs because there are many openings.

This boy (Anson) has set up a conventional mosquito net using dowels, duct tape and tennis balls. There is a tarp under the cot to keep bugs from coming up through the floor. The tarp sometimes collects water and gets gear under the cot wet.This bug solution is time-consuming and has vulnerabilities. It works, but the MosquitOasis is a much better option.

The materials for this solution cost around $38.00​

This boy is wearing a uniform, but the MosquitOasis is not an officially licensed product.
