It's our attention to detail that sets us apart.
Choose the theme you like and submit a booking inquiry. We recommend booking your experience at least 2-4 weeks in advance. If you would like a theme we do not currently offer, please let us know! We can customize any theme (additional fees may apply).
On the day of your event we will set up and style your glamping party. We will return the following day to take the party down. We launder and sanitize each item to ensure they are ready for the next event.
We will create a magical and memorable experience for your child. We pay attention to every last detail to bring you joy and memories that will last a lifetime.
So, how does this work?
All of our themes are designed to be hassle free! On the day of your event, we deliver, set up and style your celebration. We will return the next day to pack up all of The Little Teepee supplies. It is the host's responsibility to facilitate and supervise the party. An adult 18 years or older must be present for set up and take down.
How and when should I book?
Simply fill out our online reservation form. We recommend booking 2-4 weeks in advance to ensure availability of your date and theme. We can accommodate last minute bookings based on availability.
Can you explain the payment process?
A 50% deposit and refundable damage deposit secures your date and theme. The deposit will be applied to the balance and final payment is due 30 days before your event. A $100 damage deposit is required and will be refunded within 24 hours of checkout. You may add guests (based on availability) but you cannot subtract guests after the initial booking.
How long does it take to set-up and take down the teepees & themed accessories?
Teepee experiences take 45-90 minutes to set up and 30-45 minutes to take down. Bell tent experiences take 90-120 minutes set up and 45-60 minutes to take down. Picnic experiences take approximately 30 minutes to set up and 15-30 minutes to take down.
How much space do I need?
Each teepee setup requires approximately 3.5’ wide, 6.25’ deep, and 6’ feet high. We can arrange the setup in various configurations depending on your space (straight line, semi-circle, full circle, rows facing each other, aisles, etc). The space needs to be ready for set up before we arrive. We will not assist with moving furniture. A non-smoking home must be provided at all times (no exceptions).
Our bell tent is 20' in diameter and we need approximately 33' in diameter to secure it to the ground. Grass surface is required and hard surfaces, turf or dirt will not be accommodated (no exceptions).
How do the picnics work?
Similar to our teepees and bell tents, a space needs to be cleared prior to our arrival. The below dimensions allow space for the table as well as floor seating all around.
Up to 6 guests: 5' x 7'
Up to 8 guests: 6' x 9'
Up to 12 guests: 6' x 14'
We can customize any theme and picnics can be indoors or outdoors. Our 7' lace teepee is available with or without a balloon garland. All dinnerware are high end disposables. We do not provide food but can recommend many local vendors for you. Most families keep it easy with pizza and cake. The tables are not only a great place to eat but also to play games and a cute spot to open gifts. A discount is available when picnics are added to a teepee or bell tent service. A picnic is the perfect addition to any celebration!
What are my payment options?
We accept Venmo for the deposit payment, refundable damage fee and final payment.
What is the cancellation policy?
The Little Teepee does not refund any cancellations. We will happily help you reschedule a future date. If you need to reschedule your party for any reason, a minimum of 7 days notice must be given. Reschedules less than 7 days in advance will be subject to a $50 fee.
Do I need to pay a security deposit?
Yes, we require a security deposit to cover the cost of damaged, lost and/or broken items that are included in your package. Please make sure the guests do not use slime, nail polish, make-up, markers or paint around the party set up. The security deposit is $100. If no damages are confirmed, the security deposit will be refunded within 24 hours of checkout. If damages of more than $100 occur, you will be responsible for further damages including our time.
Are sleeping pillows provided?
No, for hygienic reasons glampers must bring their own sleeping pillows. If they want any additional blankets they may bring those too.
Do I need to wash the bed linens before they are collected?
Absolutely not! All of our bed linens are professionally laundered. All other items are either cleaned with disinfecting wipes or spray.
Is eating and drinking allowed in the teepees?
Yes! Party goers can use the trays for water bottles and snacks or meals. However, please ensure that all food and drinks in the party area will not cause staining or damage to any of the party supplies. Please no colored drinks. If any of the materials need to be replaced, you will be responsible for all replacement costs.
Can I host a party outdoors?
Our teepees are specifically for indoor use only. Please do not take any element from the teepee setup outdoors. However, if you have a clean and covered outdoor deck or patio we will consider an outdoor event. Our bell tents are available to host a night of glamping outdoors! Our picnics are available for both indoor and outdoor celebrations. Overnight picnics need to be hosted indoors or inside the bell tent.
How do I prepare for a bell tent or picnic outdoors?
Please make sure your sprinkler system is disabled 24 hours prior to set up and remains off until the bell tent is taken down. If sprinklers go off on the bell tent $50 will be deducted from your damage deposit. If any of the bell tent interior or picnic supplies have water damage you will be responsible for replacement costs. Your yard must be clear of all pet waste prior to our arrival.
What is the Do-It-Yourself rental option?
We are disappointed when we cannot service a party due to our schedule or the distance. We have added a DIY rental option because our goal is to make every glamper's dreams come true! You choose the theme, we package your sleepover or picnic. You will receive detailed set up and tear down instructions to set up your own party. The next day, tear the party down and pack everything back up. Drop the supplies back off to us and we'll take care of all of the cleaning and laundering. Each DIY party package will receive a 10% discount!
IMPORTANT - To transport your party you will need a vehicle that can carry all of the party supplies. SUVs and minivans are typically a great fit. Please inquire if you are unsure if your vehicle can accommodate your party supplies.
What areas do you service and are there any travel fees?
We service the Kansas City metro. However, depending on the distance we may need to include a travel fee or offer our Do-It-Yourself rental option. Additional areas are also possible with our DIY rental option. Travel up to 40 total miles is included for any experience. For travel outside of 40 total miles, $1 per mile will be added.
Is it just for kids?
Not at all! Our themes are enjoyable for tweens, teens, Mommy & Me sleepovers, Family sleepovers, Ladies' Nights, Bachelorette parties and Bridal Showers. Our experiences are tailored to your needs and we ensure that everything is age appropriate.
