Escapees Boot CampThe Escapees RV Club is sponsoring a second “RVers Boot Camp” this month after the original one was sold out and a long waiting list developed.

The Boot Camp scheduled for Nov. 6-8 in Livingston, Texas, quickly filled to capacity with a waiting list of over 50 students, according to a recent Escapees newsletter. Due to this overwhelming response, a second session is now being offered on Nov. 13-15 at the same location.

The Boot Camp is a series of seminars that teach critical RVing skills in a fast-paced and fun environment by industry experts. The 30,000-member club has been sponsoring the Boot Camps since 2002. The program has grown from an annual event to one that will be held three or four times a year at sites scattered across the U.S.

The program includes training in:

  • RV maintenance and operation.
  • Hitch-up.
  • Tire and weight safety.
  • Fire and life safety.
  • Basic RV systems.

The next Escapees Boot Camp takes place in mid-January in Quartzsite, Ariz. Details will be posted at www.escapees.com/bootcamp and announced through upcoming Club News bulletins and the Escapees magazine.

The Livingston-based Escapees RV Club offers its members a state-of-the-art website dedicated to informing members about club events, parks, activities, products, and services; a magazine loaded with articles and information written by RVers for RVers; a mail receiving and forwarding service; an extensive network of parks and affiliate parks offering discounted parking and home-base options; and CARE – the only adult day care program designed by RVers to meet the needs of RVers.
