Camping World is a proud supporter of Make-A-Wish® and its mission – to create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Many of these have included the gift of a new RV camper, gifts, certificates, and more - all in an effort to create a special experience for wish kids and their families. We have been a National Partner of Make-A-Wish since 2021. Since then, Camping World has donated more than $1.3 million of in-kind support and has granted more than 495 wishes!
Research shows that the wish experience contributes substantially to physical, mental, and emotional health. A wish helps a child replace fear with confidence, sadness with joy, and anxiety with hope. A wish strengthens families and unites communities.
Meet Gracin. Gracin’s wish to have a travel trailer came true at the Camping World of Burlington in March of 2023! The community came together for a wonderful "Wish Granting Day" Celebration - including Camping World employees, Make-A-Wish staff and volunteers, and, of course, Gracin and his family. All in attendance witnessed first-hand the impact of a wish. “The Camping World staff was so friendly and helpful. Gracin was so happy; it was so fun!" - Rachael, Wish Granting Volunteer
