PCOA/Cabela's Promote Get Outdoors Month
In support of “Great Outdoors Month,” the Pennsylvania Campground Owners Association (PCOA) is teaming up with Cabela’s in Hamburg, Pa., to promote the camping lifestyle on June 10-11. “Get Outdoors and Go Camping…It’s Easy” is the theme that the association has chosen to use for its two-day promotion.
Members of the association will be on hand to greet the guests and give them a 2011 Campground Directory of privately owned parks, according to a news release. The guests will be encouraged to check out the RVs and tents supplied by Maiden Creek Marine and RV in Berks County. They will experience what camping is really like by making mini-s’more around the campfire and singing a few campfire songs. Coloring books will be given to the children and there will be photo opportunities. Expert outfitters from Cabela’s will be demonstrating the newest camping products available and helping campers gear up for their next trip.
“Camping is not only the most affordable vacation around, it also is fun and memorable. In Pennsylvania you have over 230 campgrounds to choose from to make that memory,” said Beverly Gruber, PCOA executive director.
She adds, “Time spent camping or RVing allows you to slow down and gives you the flexibility to pursue what you want and where you want to be. It gives you a chance to rediscover your family and lets you choose the activities your family enjoys. So stop in at Cabela’s and get acquainted with camping and RVing.”
This promotion ties in with the “Great Outdoors Month” in June, being promoted by the American Recreation Coalition (ARC) and proclaimed nationwide by President Obama and nearly every state governor in the United States.
Camping is a family activity which is a great memory-maker. At this Cabela’s event, young families will be encouraged to go camping during the month of June. A coupon is being issued from the Go Camping America website, www.gocampingamerica.com, that gives a 20% discount on your campground stay. The downloadable coupons are valid only between June 1 and June 25 at participating parks, so when you call to make your reservations, be sure to ask if they will accept the GCA coupon.
