Campers Raising Money for Children’s Camps
No, it's not too early to go camping! The 14th Annual Big Weekend event is offering a special deal for campers while raising funds for children’s camps.
The Sioux Falls KOA Journey campground is offering campers a special Saturday of camping for just $10 to benefit KOA Care Camps for children with cancer. The Care Camps Big Weekend event will be held Friday, May 12th and Saturday, May 13th.
Campers who stay as paying guests on Friday, May 12 will receive another night of camping on Saturday, May 13 for just $10. The entire $10 fee will be given to KOA Care Camps, a network of 112 independent oncology summer camps for children battling cancer.
Last year, the Care Camps Trust donated more than $1.4 million to the 112 camps, allowing hundreds of children to attend at no charge.
The Big Weekend event has also become the official start to the summer camping season for thousands of camping families in North America.
