Press + Media
carter joey is a new outdoor brand for kids. Our mission is to inspire you and the children in your life to be intentional with your time, make memories, and be active, not busy.

Our Values

Family First. Always.
We work to live, not live to work. There will always be "things to do", but family is most important.

Be Intentional.
Act with purpose. Don't allow your calendar to fill up with "stuff".

Lead with Kindness.
Think of others first. Give people the benefit of the doubt.

Be Adventurous.
Take risks. Be bold. Adventures are where memories are made.

Care for the Outdoors.
Protect nature so that our children's children can enjoy the wild forever.

Our Story

Based in Pittsburgh, PA we have plenty of options to explore the outdoors! We are surrounded by the gorgeous hills, rivers and trails in Western PA. But with so many daily responsibilities — who has the time? Who has the energy? Who has the stamina to get the kids ready to go, pack a picnic, get the right clothes and gear, and arrive with a smile on your face? You do. Life's not always easy with little ones, but it sure is sweet. And isn't it worth giving every last straw of patience to experience the outdoors as a family. We think so.
Founded by Husband + Wife, Damon and Catherine, the carter joey Team has decades of experience in product development, brand building, sales management, and marketing. Veterans of retail, the carter joey Team has worked with: 4moms, American Eagle Outfitters, 77 Kids, Field & Stream, Dick's Sporting Goods, Petco, and more.
