    Encore and Thousand Trails Support Great American Backyard Campout with Buy One Get One Deal

    Encore and Thousand Trails, in support of the initiative behind the National Wildlife Federation’s annual Great American Backyard Campout, is offering a camping special to encourage people to experience the great outdoors. The Great American Backyard Campout, scheduled this year for Saturday, June 23, was created to help children foster a healthy outdoor lifestyle through camping. Encore and Thousand Trails are offering tent campers a buy one get one deal at 90 participating campground locations on June 22 and 23.

    According to the National Wildlife Federation’s website, only 25 percent of today’s children play outside daily where 75 percent of children did so only a generation ago. The Great American Backyard Campout encourages children to get outdoors to develop healthy and active lifestyles.

    “We support the effort of this event which encourages families to explore the great outdoors.” said Seth Rosenberg, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We know how great the camping experience is and we’re excited that this event will introduce more campers to this great lifestyle. We hope our offer brings many families outdoors to support the event.”

    Tent campers who purchase a night’s stay at any of the 90 participating Encore or Thousand Trails campgrounds on Friday, June 22 will receive a free night’s stay on Saturday, June 23, at the same campground.

    To take part in the Great American Backyard Campout at any of the 90 participating Encore and Thousand Trails locations, visit or call (866) 730-0637.
