KOA Supports National Great Outdoors Month
Kampgrounds of America Inc. (KOA), North America’s largest system of family friendly campgrounds, is proud to support the efforts of the American Recreation Coalition (ARC) and the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) in celebrating “Great Outdoors Month” the entire month of June, according to a news release.
Governors throughout the U.S. have signed official state proclamations naming June as Great Outdoors Month, and President Barack Obama has also signed a presidential proclamation supporting outdoor events this month.
“Our natural spaces are also laboratories for scientists, inventors, and creators – Americans who sustain a tradition of innovation that makes out country the most dynamic economy on earth,” Obama said in his proclamation.
The first official event of Great Outdoors Month was held June 1, when the American Hiking Society sponsored National Trails Day.
Other special Great Outdoors Month events in June include:
- National Fishing and Boating Week, June 1-9.
- National Get Outdoors Day, June 8.
- National Marina Day, June 8.
- The Great American Backyard Campout, June 22.
Kampgrounds of America is also inviting campers to take the men in the family camping at KOA on Fathers Day Weekend, June 14-16. During that special weekend, kids camp free at participating KOAs. Find out more at www.KOA.com.
