Nashville, Tenn.—Dec. 15, 2017—This January 2018, Rebel Engine recording artist Stephanie Quayle will partner with Kampgrounds of America, Inc. (KOA) for the “Quayle For A Cause Tour” throughout the state of Florida. Quayle will perform at select KOAs for campers and the public to help raise funds to send children with cancer to KOA Care Camps across the country. The concert series will honor local families participating in the KOA Care Camps program and spotlight the brave young superheroes benefiting from the camping experience. With a mission of sending children with cancer to camp to temporarily escape their harsh realities and bond with other children they can relate to, 100 percent of the proceeds from the tour will benefit KOA Care Camp attendees.
To date, Quayle has already raised $24,000 in support of the KOA Care Camps foundation during a live auction at the 55th Anniversary KOA Annual International Convention.
“There is no greater gift than the gift of lifelong memories,” says Stephanie Quayle. “I lived for the times our family would go camping when I was growing up. I am honored to be a voice for this amazing cause and help give these precious kids the opportunity to be a regular kid and just have fun with new friends just like them.”
Admission for the “Quayle For A Cause Tour” is available to the general public for a $10 donation at the gate* and free for KOA campers staying at the KOA during the concert time.
Those unable to attend a show, or wanting to support the cause now may donate here.

About KOA Care Camps:
Camping is more than just about having fun. It’s an opportunity to escape from everyday cares, clear your mind, make new friends and get back to the little things that mean so much. In fact, camping can have a remarkable healing effect on both body and spirit. And nobody needs healing and hope more than children with cancer.
That’s why in 1984 KOA campground owners came together to create KOA Care Camps. Care Camps raises money to send children with cancer to specialized summer camps throughout North America.
At these camps, kids have the chance to experience summer camp with others their age who understand what they’re going through. They swim, hike, sing, laugh, make new friends and create joy-filled memories, all while receiving the medical treatment they need.
To date, KOA Care Camps has raised more than $12 million through activities on KOA campgrounds, donations received from our amazing camping guests and support from local, regional and national corporate sponsorships.
