May 11th and 12th are the dates for KOA’s Come Camp and Care With Us Weekend, where participating campgrounds offer a “buy one night, get one night free” deal. Those who take advantage of this offer help KOA raise funds for their care camps, a group of 44 summer campgrounds designated for the use of children fighting cancer. The donations of campers are used to support this worthy cause.

All campers should register for KOA’s 50th Anniversary Giveaway sweepstakes. Since the launch 50 days ago, more than 100,000 campers have registered to win the top prize of a 2012 Keystone Vantage recreational vehicle. Other prizes involved in the sweepstakes include 50 weeks of free camping at any KOA location, in addition to eight $500 camping gear gift certificates. To register for the giveaway go to the main KOA website. Get all your camping news at our website.
