PCOA Sponsors ‘Go Camping’ Promotion this Weekend
The Pennsylvania Campground Owners Association (PCOA) is teaming up with Cabela’s in Hamburg, Pa., to promote the camping lifestyle on April 28-29. “Get Outdoors and Go Camping…It’s Easy” is the theme that the association has chosen to use for its two-day promotion, according to a news release.
Members of the association will be on hand to greet the guests and give them a 2012 Pennsylvania campground directory of privately owned parks. The guests will be encouraged to check out the RVs supplied by Family Camping, Pottstown. A travel trailer, fifth-wheel trailer and toy hauler will be on display. Visitors will experience what camping is really like by tasting s’mores and singing a few campfire songs. Coloring books will be given to the children and there will be photo opportunities on hand. 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 235 campgrounds to choose from to make that memory,” said Beverly Gruber, PCOA executive director. “Camping is a great family activity. At the Cabela’s event, young families will be encouraged to take their children camping this year.”
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.”
