Cruise meetings give our managers and key personnel the opportunity to attend planned meetings, spend time together, share ideas, create friendships and relax after a busy season. The meetings focused primarily on customer service, management training seminars, motivational videos, marketing and operational cracker barrels. Many meetings qualified for CPO credits from ARVC.

Peter Kearns from Campground Manager graciously hosted the opening night “Bon Voyage Party” and gave an informative session on Book Your Site and Campground Manager. The last evening of the cruise wrapped up with the Managers’ Auction, a variation of a favorite activity at many Adventure Bound Camping Resorts, and a manager’s appreciation party and awards ceremony. Several managers were honored for financial performance, outstanding recreation programs, customer service and operational excellence.

Adventure Bound was thrilled to reward our managers and key personnel with a week in the Caribbean aboard an incredible 5-star ship in order to thank them for providing the company with an outstanding year. 2009 was our best year since the company was founded.  Looking toward 2010 we plan for another record-breaking year with our strong management team.

Adventure Bound owns nine camping resorts primarily in the Northeast with one in Tucson, Ariz., and another in Gatlinburg, Tenn., and is known for its high level of customer service. The company is owned by H. Wayne Klekamp Inc. based in Vero Beach, Fla. Wayne Klekamp, the company’s founder, is very involved in the company’s management focusing on acquisitions, capital improvements and financing.

“Plans are to continue the tight watch on our expenses, and begin adding cabins and other amenities to our properties,” said Klekamp. “We have positioned ourselves to move forward in the coming years with expansion of current properties, acquisitions and even a greater emphasis on customer service.”
