The Pennsylvania Campground Owners Association kicked off the spring camping season with Family Camping Outlet at Cabela’s in Hamburg, Pennsylvania last month. The association promoted the camping and RV lifestyle with its “Discover Your Outdoor Moments” theme, April 27-28.
Thirteen member campgrounds represented the association by greeting shoppers, presenting them with the 2019 Campground directory and handing out S’mores, which were made on a gas grill. PCOA passed out 1,300 S’mores during the weekend event and coloring books to children.
Family Camping Outlet, Stowe, Pa., provided the three RVs available for tours.
“Camping is not only the most affordable vacation around, it also is fun and memorable. In Pennsylvania we have 226 campgrounds to choose from to make that memory,” said Beverly Gruber, the executive director of the Pennsylvania Campground Owners Association. “Camping is a great family activity. At the Cabela’s event, young families were encouraged to take their children camping this year.”
She added, “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.”
