Camperworld Inc. News letter

President's Message

July is a monumental month for us here at Camperworld. Not only do we celebrate the independence of our nation, we also celebrate the settlement of pioneers in the Salt Lake Valley. Without the pioneer settlement, Camperworld's parks may not exist. We are proud to be a Utah company with parks located throughout the beautiful Rocky Mountains.

This is the time of year to take advantage of the beautiful outdoors. Use those holiday vacation hours There is so much to do and to see. Pull out the boat, the atvs, your hiking boots, your fishing poles, or even just your camping chairs and come join us at the parks! Listed in this newsletter are several activities we have planned over the next couple of months that you are sure to enjoy.

I would like to take a moment to reflect upon the great blessing we have to reside in a free nation. Napoleon Bonaparte said, "nothing is more difficult, and therefore more precious, than to be able to decide." Everyday we are faced with difficult decisions, however, I wouldn't have it any other way. To have control of our own future is truly a blessing. We owe a debt of gratitude to our forefathers and to our troops all over the world fighting today to ensure that our liberties are preserved.

ADMINISTRATIVE STUFF...

Bankruptcy Update

Within a matter of weeks, Camperworld will submit its plan of reorganization to the courts. The deadline to file our plan is July 20. Once the plan has been filed, it will be reviewed by the courts before being sent out for a vote from Camperworld's creditors.

Pet Paperwork

After further review of our pet policy, it was determined that members will no longer be required to provide proof of insurance and rabies vaccination records at the parks. Please be aware that no other changes to the pet policy have occurred.

Why Isn't Camperworld Using Volunteers?

Camperworld now requires anybody that works at the parks to be on the payroll. Many members have asked us why we quit using volunteers at the different parks. Here is the answer. As new management looked further into human resources laws, a few things were discovered. IRS regulations require that any compensation to employees be recorded. Our "volunteers" were in fact being compensated by receiving a site to stay in. This means that these individuals were actually not volunteers, but were in fact employees that Camperworld is required to pay at least minimum wage to. These employees do not qualify for "exempt" employment status and must be paid hourly.

Workers compensation insurance was also an issue addressed in making the decision to require workers to be on the payroll. In order to protect those that perform work at the parks, and to protect Camperworld, it was important to get all workers covered under workers compensation insurance. In order for workers to be covered, it is required that they be on Camperworld's payroll.

We hope this better helps our members understand why we cannot use volunteers at the parks. It is important that Camperworld is in compliance with all State and Federal regulations and that our employees are protected in the event that something does happen.

Father's Day Success!

Many happy campers participated in the Father's Day dessert potluck at Knotty Pine. We express appreciation to all of those that joined us for root beer floats and also to those who brought a dessert to share!

Check In

Just another friendly reminder that check in is after 2:00 PM. If you show up early, we may not be able to get you into your site. In order to keep our parks looking their best, we need that extra time to get your site cleaned up before you check in. We really appreciate everyone's cooperation with this matter.
