Escapees RV Club Readies for 53rd Escapade
The Escapees RV Club, headquartered in Livingston, Texas, will host the 53rd Escapade at the Cam-Plex Multi-event Center, in Gillette Wyo., June 30–July 5.
According to a press release, Escapade is a five-day event delivering an extensive lineup of educational workshops centered around the RV lifestyle. This year marks the 35th birthday of the club, founded by Joe and Kay Peterson in 1978. The milestone will be honored with a birthday banquet on July 4 sponsored by Paul Evert’s RV Country, followed by a fireworks extravaganza.
The first Escapade was held in Bakersfield, Calif., in 1979, with 24 families attending. The event now attracts as many as 1,500 attendees from across the nation and internationally.
According to Escapees, the Escapade is the premier opportunity to learn or refine the nuances of a lifestyle that continues to attract devotees while also meeting likeminded people enjoying the RV adventure. With almost 50,000 active family members, Escapees RV Club members “share a special bond and a passion for RV travel,” according to the release.
On July 3, Escapees RV Club will host a complimentary community appreciation day at the Cam-Plex as a special thankyou to the surrounding communities. Area residents are invited to visit from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to learn more about the club, its members and RVing. Guests may participate in the seminars and peruse the wide selection of RV-related products available in the exhibitor and market areas.
In keeping with the Escapees mind-set of giving something back, the club will support Gillette and the surrounding community with a food drive for the Campbell County Council of Community Services during the event. In addition, Escapade delivers as much as a million dollars into the local economy while attendees shop, dine and enjoy the charm of the local areas.
