Over the weekend, Dwyane Wade’s daughter Zaya turned 15, and Dwyane and his wife Gabrielle Union had the entire family over to celebrate. Zaya’s birthday party theme was “Camp Zaya,” and although there were campfires and tents, there was absolutely no “roughing it” going on.
“HAPPY 15th BIRTHDAY @zayawade,” Union captioned a May 30 Instagram post. “We all love you sooooooo much and you make us proud every single day! You are such a gift and a blessing in all our lives.” She tagged the post #CampZaya.
Union’s video shows a peek at how the theme came together. Massive teepee-style floating tents were put up in lieu of traditional shade umbrellas. Adirondack chairs are situated around a fire pit (perfect for making s’mores). And there’s even a full-on yurt for partygoers to seek shade in.
Next to the pool, Union and Wade also installed a light-up marquee sign that spell out “CAMP ZAYA.” You can find similar marquee letters on Etsy if you want to make your own camp signage.
And surprisingly enough, you can also pick up a yurt like the one at Zaya’s party online, too. There’s one currently available on Amazon for under $700. It’s made with water-repellent canvas and comes in three sizes. And reviewers say it’s easy to set up and handles inclement weather like nobody’s business.

Zaya Wade’s birthday may have been camp-themed, but it was much more along the lines of “glamping” instead.
