National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds’ (ARVC) recently held its annual Outdoor Hospitality Conference and Expo (OHCE), this year in a virtual format because of COVID-19. Out of that event came a couple pieces of news.

ARVC 20 Group IV has presented its second annual campground management school scholarship to the ARVC Foundation.

ARVC 20 Groups are composed of non-competing member campgrounds voluntarily and mutually associated to provide a confidential exchange of experiences, problems, and ideas at regular meetings. This particular group, Group IV, also donated a scholarship last year to cover one annual scholarship that will pay the full cost of attendance for an individual at the National School of RV Park and Campground Management.

“Because 20 Group IV was founded by graduates of the school, we want to encourage and sponsor a deserving student to attend the school and gain the knowledge base that we were fortunate enough to received,” said Joe Moore, 20 Group IV administrative executive and past member. “We trust that the ARVC Foundation will choose a qualified candidate to receive this scholarship and strengthen our campground industry through this education platform.”

“The campground industry is built on passing knowledge on from one generation to the next, especially with so many businesses being family-owned and operated, so this generous gift continues in that tradition,” said Paula Horwitz, ARVC Foundation executive director and the ARVC executive director of education and events. “National School is such a vital part of the outdoor hospitality industry, and for 20 Group IV to provide the opportunity to assist those who need a little bit of help is such an amazing gift.”

ARVC also announced that anyone interested can access recordings of all the presentations from the virtual conference for a limited time.

Recordings of the more than 25 educational sessions, “Takeaway Tours” of ARVC member-parks; the Reservations Systems Panel; the general sessions; and keynote address by bestselling author Gretchen Rubin on how to be resilient in the age of COVID; are all available on the ARVC’s Online Learning Center.
