KOA Honors First Workampers of the Year
Ike and Charlene Eigenhuis, California natives who have been enjoying workamping for the past four years, were named today (Nov. 17) as Kampgrounds of America's (KOA) first ever KOA Workampers of the Year.
The recipients were selected by the KOA Owners Association to receive the award, which honors the best of KOA's more than 1,000 workamping teams in North America, according to a news release. The award was presented during the KOA convention in Houston, Texas.
The Eigenhuises were nominated by Steve and Sara Jewell, owners of the Fayetteville/Wade, N.C., KOA Kampground, where Ike and Charlene workamped during the 2009 summer season.
"It is such an honor," said Charlene. "I am just overwhelmed."
"For us, it's all about making it great for our campers," said Ike. "We know that there are a bunch of fantastic people out there workamping for KOA. To be recognized like this is really something special."
