Camping Gear Outlet (CGO), an online camping retail store that sells a wide array of high-quality camping equipment, launched its youth outreach program last week by donating over $1000 in camping gear to a Boy Scout Troop in Prairieville, LA.
“When you’re in the outdoors business, you know how much of a difference having quality camping gear can make,” said Warren Sager, CGO co-founder. “We want to make sure young people have the camping equipment they needed to fully enjoy the great outdoors.”
Sager said the donation is part of an continuous effort by CGO to support camping, hiking and other outdoors activity among Boy Scouts and other youth in Louisiana. He added that in addition to making donations, the online retailer also offers significant discounts for bulk purchases of camping equipment by youth organizations.
The equipment, which was donated to Boy Scouts of America troop 769, consisted of two camping stoves, a cast-iron griddle, a Dutch oven, tent stakes and a trekking pole.
According to the troop’s assistant scoutmaster, David Breaux, it was a big boost to the group’s future camping plans.
“Our troop is growing and we are happy to have a partner like Camping Gear Outlet to help the boys,” Breaux said. “I still can’t believe all the great camping supplies that the boys now have to use when they go camping.”
Camping Gear Outlet is based in Prairieville, LA and carries thousands of camping products from top-of-the line brands, like GSI Outdoors, CampRight, Alps Mountaineering and others.
It also hosts an extensive camping information section, with articles on topics ranging from building a latrine to buying a sleeping bag.
