When booking your stay, you can choose from a Summit Tent, Outlook Shelter, or a Journey+ tent. Each will provide you with a slightly different experience. The Summit Tent is a luxurious tent with a bohemian feel that has both wifi and air conditioning. The Outlook Shelter is a physical mini structure with expansive beautiful windows. The Journey+ experience is a more traditional, rustic camping feel if that seems exciting for you! 

Once settled in, there is a delicious farm to island restaurant with a large focus on seafood! As a guest on the island, you can even take culinary lessons. Visit the Collective Governors Island to find out more activities available to guests.
