Coworking Meets Wellness
Campworks: A Coworking Space for Active Professionals and Outdoor Enthusiasts
The growth of coworking spaces worldwide is stunning. In Boulder, Colorado alone, there are more than a dozen spaces that currently market themselves for shared office space, networking, and conference room booking. On a national level, the climbing industry is predicted to grow at a continually steady pace, expanding opportunities for new business models, collaborative exchange, and multifaceted work environments. This is our contemporary moment. As the coworking tide rises, and the need for office space escalates—for entrepreneurs, start-ups, small business owners, and even established companies—so does the potential for new ways of thinking around how we can work and operate as communities.
When Gloria Ontiveros reflected on the opportunity to launch a shared working space in her building on South Boulder road, she immediately saw it as a chance to not only activate a positive working environment, but also to encourage local lifestyles of outdoor enthusiasm, wellness, and work/life balance that for 25 years fueled her career as a business owner.
Campworks—opening October 1, 2017—is a sunlit, peaceful, forward-thinking and modern coworking space that values a productive environment connected to the outdoors. It will be the first coworking space in Boulder with dedicated outdoor working spaces (coming Spring 2018) and is located next to the South Boulder Creek trailhead with running and cycling paths to Bobolink and Marshall Mesa.
“I know so many business owners who value time getting fresh air,” states Gloria. “Living in Colorado, it’s almost mandatory to spend time outside either enjoying the sunshine or being active. At Campworks, I want our members to be able to jump outside at any time of day for a quick break from work—go for a walk, take a quick bike ride, sit out in the sun—and then fluidly move back into a focused and peaceful workplace. We even have showers to rinse off!”
Campworks’ outdoor workspace will provide shade structures, comfortable furniture, hi-speed wifi, and power to all members. Indoors, dedicated desks, semi-private offices, and fully private offices for individuals and teams of up to 12 people, are available to suit each member’s needs. With private parking, bicycle storage, onsite staff, and a calendar of upcoming workshops, Campworks wants to make sure everyone can make the best of each day.
