Great American Backyard Cookout celebrates camping

Encore and Thousand Trails RV resorts, 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.

According to a press release, the Great American Backyard Campout, scheduled for 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 22-23.

According to the National Wildlife Federation’s website, only 25% of today’s children play outside daily where 75% 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 for Encore and Thousand Trails. “We know how great the camping experience is and we’re excited that this event will introduce more campers to this great lifestyle.”

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

Encore RV Resorts and Thousand Trails, which are owned and operated by Equity LifeStyle Properties, are sharing their commitment to environmentally friendly RVing with their guests by offering free samples of Nature-Zyme – an environmentally friendly holding tank solution.

Starting at seven Encore resorts (see below for property names and locations), RVers who do not currently use a chemical-free holding tank solution will be offered a free sample of Nature-Zyme when they arrive to begin their overnight stay, according to a news release.

“Encore Resorts and Thousand Trails have been investing in environmentally friendly initiatives for years, ranging from use of solar panels to heat pools to installation of energy efficient fixtures and light bulbs.” said Ellen Kelleher, executive vice president of property management for ELS. “We use environmentally safe treatment solutions at our campgrounds and feel offering similar products to our guests is a great way to help increase awareness.”

Nature-Zyme is a 100% natural and non-toxic RV holding tank treatment that has been shown to effectively manage holding tank needs while improving overall operation of RV holding tank systems. Use of Nature-Zyme promotes “Clean and Green” RV’ing by removing the need for use of hazardous chemicals that are often found in products used to manage holding tanks.

The Encore Resort properties where guests can receive a free Nature-Zyme sample include:

  • Palm Desert RV Resort in Palm Desert.
