Tents for Troops (T4T),, the nationwide network of RV parks and campgrounds offering complimentary camping to active military and their families, expanded its reach following the recent National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds’ (ARVC) Outdoor Hospitality Conference in Savannah, Ga.

T4T staff members at the opening luncheon immediately following the Color Guard and exhibited at ARVC’s Outdoor Hospitality Expo.

As a result, T4T added nearly 40 new park participants to the network, according to a news release.

Park owners/operators in attendance were able to learn about program details from founder and park owner Charlie Curry, thank active members of the U.S. Marines including Staff Sergeant Joaquin Montada, Staff Sergeant John Echenique, Sergeant Benjamin Harrelson and Sergeant Matthew Griener for their service to our country as they assisted in manning the booth, and sign up for the program on the spot.

“We are absolutely thrilled with the comments, feedback and registrations we received at the ARVC Outdoor Hospitality Expo. This exposure gave us the opportunity to talk about Tents for Troops, confirm that there are no obligations for park owners to commit sites during their busiest periods, and communicate the gratitude our troops have expressed for this program,” remarked Curry. He added his sincere thanks to ARVC for supporting T4T as well as our troops and for the opportunity to be present at the Conference and Expo.

Several park representatives spoke with Curry and took information back to their parks for further consideration. Curry expects quite a few more parks to join the network after the New Year as a result of the Expo.

New park participants are being added to the T4T website daily with the total number of participating parks at nearly 200 and growing. Curry and T4T encourage all RV park and campground owners/operators to say thank you to those active military individuals and their immediate families by logging in to, completing the registration form, and submitting it to Curry at or via fax at (360) 274-5390.
