Gather ‘Round the Campfire with Toyota Tundra Summer Camp
Toyota, Bass Pro Shops and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department partner to send families camping
HOUSTON (May 21, 2015) – S’mores, campfires and ghost stories are in store for new Tundra owners this summer. Toyota, Bass Pro Shops and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) are joining forces to encourage family camping through the Toyota Tundra Summer Camp, just in time for summer camping season. From June 2 to August 3, 2015, customers purchasing a new 2015 Special Edition Toyota Tundra in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Texas will receive approximately $1,000 worth of Bass Pro Shops camping gear to use during Tundra Summer Camp, courtesy of Toyota.
Tundra Summer Camp will be featured at the Bass Pro Shops Family Summer Camp which includes activities and workshops for the whole family to learn the basic skills needed to enjoy the great outdoors together, including basics of camping, fishing, archery and hunting.
“Our Tundra owners use their trucks for everything and know that their trucks will take them anywhere they want to go,” said Brent Hillyer, vice president of marketing at Gulf States Toyota, one of the world’s largest independent distributors of Toyota vehicles and parts. “Through our partnership with Bass Pro Shops and Texas Parks and Wildlife, we are making it even easier to experience the great outdoors with the quality, dependability and reliability the Tundra is known for.”
While Toyota is proud to encourage fun, adventurous, healthy and active lifestyles through initiatives such as the Tundra Summer Camp, Toyota is equally committed to making a difference in the community through philanthropic partnerships and efforts. During the Tundra Summer Camp event, Toyota will donate camping gear and funding to make it possible for TPWD to provide scholarships to non-profit and municipal partners of TPWD’s ‘Texas Outdoor Family’ program. These scholarships will enable organizations such as Houston’s Parks and Recreation Department and The Woods Project to introduce children and families to the fun of camping and spending time in nature together and teaching them the basic skills they need to enjoy the outdoors.
“In today’s society, 15 years can seem like a lifetime. For us, it is a testament to the strength of the partnership between Gulf States Toyota and TPWD,” said Carter Smith, TPWD executive director. “It is because of their generous support that we are able to offer so many great programs that allow Texas families to enjoy the outdoors and help conserve the wild places and wild things that mean so much to our great state.”
With a new Toyota truck and top-of-the-line camping gear in the bed, the great outdoors calls and Toyota is helping families get ready. In addition to the Tundra Summer Camp, families can prepare for adventure, learn new outdoors skills and hone existing ones with Bass Pro Shops ‘Family Summer Camp’, which will run in conjunction with Toyota’s summer promotion.
“Summer is a great time to experience the outdoors and camping is the perfect way to do it. At Bass Pro Shops, we love helping families gear up for their outdoor adventures and teaching them the skills they need to make each outing a special memory,” said Tammy Sapp, communications director for Bass Pro Shops. “We know that time spent outdoors has far-reaching benefits for kids and adults, and we hope that this program and our in-store Family Summer Camp event will inspire families to learn new skills that they can enjoy for the rest of their lives.”
The Texas built 2015 Special Edition Tundra is decked out with premium accessories including; 20-inch wheel and tire upgrade, running boards, exhaust tip and carpet floor mats. Every Tundra includes the option of the mighty 381 hp/401 lb.-ft torque 5.7L i-Force V8 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. The Tundra also features the latest in braking technology, Toyota’s Star Safety System, plus, the towing package gives you the power and control needed to pull a boat, ATV, UTV, camper and other outdoor toys.
