KOA Get Out There Grants
Camping season is right around the corner, so there’s no better time to chat with Mike Gast, VP of Communications with Kampgrounds of America.
Mike is here to tell us about a new KOA grant program, some interesting findings from their North American Camper Report, camping trends, and how KOA works.
KOA has nearly 500 campgrounds across North America which operate on a franchise model, supporting campground owners with all the tools and information they need to ensure a great experience for guests.
Camping is fun, affordable, and with newer trends such as glamping, woody tents, and luxury cabins, there’s a way for everyone to experience nature and the outdoors life. With their North American Camper Report, KOA is able to stay on top of these trends and understand what campers are looking for. They’ve seen record growth over the last 6 years, and research has shown that a whopping number of Americans love to camp – even millennials!
KOA’s website has everything you need to start planning a great trip, and you’ll also want to check out KOA’s new ‘Get Out There’ grants which are available to all U.S. and Canadian citizens, awarded in any amount from $1,000 to $5,000 per person. These have been made available for recipients to experience a special dream of their own design! KOA will even send a video crew along to document your adventure!
