Rieber explained that they’ve been teaming up with Tri-County Animal Shelter for a few years now, and they love how active the shelter is to share their cause.

The Cause Camp Weekend is the weekend before or after Memorial Day.
Reiber said the date was posted on their annual calendar, which will be released in January.
Two of Campers Paradise’s employees were also nominated for the separate Employee of the Year award.
