KOA's Come Camp & Care With Us Weekend 2008

Kampgrounds of America recently announced the Come Camp and Care With Us Weekend to be held May 9-10, 2008. A list of participating camp grounds can be found on the KOA site.

According to Kampgrounds of America...

Kampgrounds of America's popular Come Camp and Care With Us Weekend will be held the weekend of May 9-10, 2008. Campers staying as paid guests on Friday, May 9, at participating KOAs will receive a free night of camping at that campground on Saturday, May 10.

Since 2004, KOA has offered campers throughout North America a free night of camping each May at participating KOA campgrounds. In 2007, the event was expanded to a weekend event, offering a free Saturday of camping for those who stay as paid guests at participating campgrounds on Friday.

The event is intended to expose more people to the joys of camping by offering them a free night, as well as to encourage campers to both begin camping earlier in the spring season, and to consider KOA campgrounds close to home. Expanding to a weekend event allows KOA campground owners to plan more fun activities for campers to enjoy.

For 2008, the event will again serve as a major fundraiser for KOA Care Camps for children with cancer. The 35 camps, located throughout North America, offer children with cancer and their siblings a chance to experience summer camp in a safe environment while continuing with their medically supervised treatments.

"Come Camp and Care With Us Weekend has grown to become one of the highlights of our camping year," said KOA President and Chief Operating Officer Shane Ott. "Pairing it with a great charity like KOA Care Camps for children with cancer just seemed natural, because we knew our campers would love to help these special kids experience great camping, too."

In 2007, camper donations helped raise more than $225,000 for KOA Care Camps during the Come Camp and Care With Us Weekend event.
