TO RECOGNIZE THE RECREATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES AND ECONOMIC IMPACT OF CAMPING AND TO DECLARE MARCH 20-26, 2000, AS CAMPING AWARENESS WEEK IN SOUTH CAROLINA.

Whereas, camping and camping activities increase the quality of life and recreational satisfaction of our citizens; and
Whereas, the camping industry in South Carolina represents an important contribution to the state's economy; and
Whereas, the South Carolina Campground Owners Association represents 12,000 camping sites at 33 campgrounds from the South Carolina coast to the mountains; and
Whereas, those campgrounds bring economic benefits to South Carolina, generating accommodations and sales taxes and keeping tourist dollars in the area; and
Whereas, the South Carolina Campground Owners Association is engaged in a continuing effort to promote the industry's goals and objectives of building a stronger camping presence in South Carolina and cooperating with the State Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism and others in furthering the interest of camping. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly hereby declare the week of March 20-26, 2000, as Camping Awareness Week in South Carolina and urge all citizens to take advantage of the recreational opportunities camping offers.
