Free Camping While Helping Children With Cancer

KOA CARE CAMPS BIG WEEKEND – There is one thing we can all agree on; it has been a really long winter! Most of us are anxious to get out and hit the open roads of America, and typically the most economical way to do so is with camping. That is why I am delighted to share this initiative from KOA, Kampgrounds of America.

KOA set up KOA Care Camps, a group of 56 specialized summer camps located throughout North America that provide a true summer camp experience for children with cancer and their siblings. Each year, Kampgrounds of America and its local KOA owners raise funds through camper donations to support these very special camps and deserving children.

During Care Camps Big Weekend, participating KOAs will offer campers the ability to donate to KOA Care Camps through several special, fun events and activities – or feel free to drop your donation directly into one of the handy collection stations you will see in the KOA Camp Stores.

The KOA Care Camps Trust distributes $500,000 annually to these camps to help send children to the summer camps of their dreams.

This is where you come in.

KOA will offer guests who stay as a paying guest Friday, May 9, 2014 at any participating KOA campground a free stay on Saturday, May 10.

I spot checked some various locations we may be interested in visiting, and there is some great value to be found out of this deal, while helping a tremendous cause.

For example, Cedar Point opens to the public Saturday, May 10. The Sandusky/Bayshore KOA still had everything from tent sites to cabins available as of this posting. Drive there and stay Friday night, and then head to the park all day Saturday, knowing you have a comfy place to rest upon your return.

Think you will be able to take part in this promotion? Let us know where you will be headed in the comments.
