‘Big Weekend’ at Weatherford KOA May 9-10

care-camps-big-weekend-2014If you could make a difference in the life of a child with cancer, would you? Would you look for a way to bring them hope and help them heal? Would you find ways where they could feel “normal” again?

At KOA Care Camps, KOA says “yes.” And more importantly, it is doing something about it. Having cancer shouldn’t mean giving up the joys of childhood. That’s why the KOA Campground Owners Association created the Care Camps Trust – to help children who have cancer enjoy carefree time focusing on fun, friends and activities instead of on their illness.

Campers can help out on this project during Care Camps “Big Weekend” May 9-10. Stay as a paying guest Friday, May 9, at Weatherford KOA and get Saturday, May 10, for free. The campground is located off Interstate 20, just west of Fort Worth.

During Care Camps Big Weekend, participating KOAs will offer campers the ability to donate to KOA Care Camps through several special, fun events and activities – or feel free to drop your donation directly into one of the handy collection stations you’ll see in the KOA Camp Stores.

Now in its 11th year, the program has raised more than $5 million to help send children with cancer to KOA Care Camps across North America. These 56 specialized, medically equipped facilities offer a true summer camp experience to children undergoing treatment or recovering from cancer. The KOA Care Camps Trust distributes $500,000 annually to these camps to help send children to the summer camps of their dreams.

KOA’s mission is to allow these amazing children to enjoy the joy, healing and freedom that come from attending specialized summer camps where they can just be themselves. Surrounded by other kids just like them, they swim, go on hikes, sing songs and create memories that help get them through the tough times. They heal physically and emotionally, and hope flourishes.

Whether you stay one night, several nights, a week, a month or several months at Weatherford KOA, you will be happy you did.

Our 58-site campground is open year-round and is located just west of Fort Worth off I-20. Weatherford is the cutting Horse Capital of the World so it is common to see real cowboys and cowgirls wearing their western hats, boots and spurs as they shop in our local stores.

Our Historic Shopping District is full of antique, boutique and specialty stores. Many specialize in western memorabilia and rustic, ranch-style furniture. There’s also an old-time Farmer’s Market, where you can buy fresh Parker County produce, including watermelon, pecans and of course our famous peaches.

The crown jewel of the downtown is the Parker County Courthouse, recently restored to its original splendor.

Chandor Gardens is Weatherford’s pride and joy. Built by famed English portrait artist Douglas Chandor for his Weatherford bride, the Gardens capture both the elegance of a formal English garden and the ornate design of Chinese architecture. From the 30-foot waterfall to soothing fountains, from a bowling green to secret hideaways, Chandor Gardens will capture your awe and wonder at every turn.Chandor Gardens

We have over 30 places to eat and more than 30 places to shop within one mile of the park.
