GoCampingAmerica’s YouTube channel. All videos must be taken and submitted between June 1 and Labor Day (midnight Sept. 5).

Video entries will be voted on through the ‘favorites’ option on YouTube between

June 1 and Sep. 5. The grand prize winner will receive a weeklong trip in an RV, courtesy of El Monte RV, and free camping at GoCampingAmerica.com campgrounds. Other prizes

include seven days and six nights of lodging at any GoCampingAmerica park, a  $100 Camping World gift certificate, plus a $100 movie ticket certificate and other Judy Moody movie related promotional items.
