Cabela’s is partnering with Kampgrounds of America Inc. (KOA) to help raise funds to support KOA Care Camps for children with cancer throughout North America.

According to a press release, Cabela’s staff at the company’s retail location in Billings, Mont., recently presented KOA President Pat Hittmeier with a check for $15,000 to help support the work of the 44 KOA Care Camps for children with cancer.

“KOA Care Camps is a quality program with a splendid cause and we’re proud to support the efforts of KOA,” said Tommy Millner, CEO of Cabela’s. “To celebrate campaign and the great outdoors is wonderful, but to do so while enriching the lives of young people facing adversity is truly commendable.”

KOA Care Camps provide a summer camping experience to children throughout North America who are either undergoing cancer treatment or in recovery from the disease.
