Join thousands of happy campers tomorrow, Friday 16 November for Camp and Care with BIG4 2012 – Australia’s BIGgest night of charitable camping. BIG4 Forest Glen Holiday Resort is encouraging locals to enjoy a night under the stars, for a nominal $20 site fee to be donated by the park to the Coastal Caring Clowns.
Camp and Care with BIG4 encourages people to try camping for the first time and to explore a holiday destination close to home, while helping a worthy cause. All proceeds will go to Coastal Caring Clowns, who are a group of volunteer clowns who visit nursing homes, hospitals and respite centres on the Sunshine Coast to brighten the day of sick patients. Guests staying at BIG4 Forest Glen Holiday Resort will be able to enjoy the park’s great facilities, but can also indulge in the many great local attractions that the Sunshine Coast offers.
Park manager Leanne Barns says the event is a great opportunity to grab the kids or a group of friends and experience the thrill of camping in the name of charity.
“You can relax in our heated pool, let the kids join in on the daily parrot feeding and stick around for the sausage sizzle and outdoor movie on Saturday. All you need is $20, your camping gear and a sense of adventure – we provide the rest!” Leanne says.
With 100 BIG4 Holiday Parks participating in Camp and Care with BIG4 this year, Kari Hunter – General Manager of Marketing at BIG4 Holiday Parks, says the ninth annual camping event will appeal to all holiday makers wanting to try something new and make a difference.
“Camp and Care with BIG4 gives everyone the opportunity to enjoy a night of camping at a flat fee of $20 per site, with the added bonus of knowing the money is going to a local person, group or organisation in need,” Kari says.
“Last year’s event was a great success, raising much needed funds for causes all over the country. We’re looking forward to working with the people of Australia to make a small difference once again,” adds Kari.
Many parks will be hosting additional activities over the weekend to celebrate the event such as pancake breakfasts, face painting and BBQs to name just a few, so check out the list of participating parks online and explore a new, or familiar, area for a good cause.
