Cool Stuff We're Doing

Here at Camping World, there’s a lot going on. Not only do we have some great things for our associates, but we also partner with fun organizations across the country. From college football to professional baseball, you may have seen us around. Take a look at some of the cool stuff we’re doing.

Camping World Stadium

In 2016, Camping World began an eight-year agreement for the naming rights to Orlando’s football stadium, formerly known as the Citrus Bowl, now the Camping World Stadium. Camping World is also the sponsor of a series of early season neutral-site college football games named the “Camping World Kickoff”.

In addition to college football games, the stadium hosts Orlando City and Orlando Pride soccer games, concerts and other major events. More recently, on January 1, 2018, the Citrus Bowl presented by Overton's was held at Camping World Stadium.

Camping World Technical Institute

We have high standards for our service departments across the country. So, in 2017, we developed a two-week intensive curriculum to train our RV Technicians how to repair and maintenance RVs and trailers the correct way – The Camping World Way.

This curriculum is taught at one of three facilities - Marion, NC; Island Lake, IL; and Mesa, AZ - and is a mixture of classroom and hands-on shop work. On Day One, we introduce new team members to our process, various internal departments, and how they work together to help our customers get back on the road. Then, we dive head first into the numerous systems and components that our technicians may encounter on the job, including Plumbing and Electrical Systems, Batteries and Generators, Propane, Heating, Water, Refrigeration, Stove, Ovens and Air Conditioners. At the end of the two weeks, our technicians are ready for anything that may enter their service bay.

Since our inaugural class at the beginning of 2018, hundreds of technicians have graduated from the Camping World Technical Institute.

Camping World and Weber State University Launch National Recreation Contest

With a history steeped in entrepreneurship, Camping World is always looking to develop future leaders of industry. That’s why Camping World has partnered with the Hall Global Entrepreneurship Center at Weber State University to host Outdoor Weber.

Students from around the country are invited to present their ideas for outdoor recreation products or services, with the finalists competing at a three-day outdoor recreation contest in the Ogden Valley of Northern Utah. Last year’s grand prize winners, Brenna and William Davis, received $45,000 to develop their business concept, COMM, a device to help climbers better communicate on the mountain. Taking second place was Jason Glenn, who created Spring Loaded Snowboard Straps, which allows snowboarders to get in and out of their board with ease.
