Are You A Leader?
Are you the type of person who plans all your friends’ events? Are you the one with lots of great ideas? Then we want to talk to you. We are looking for some folks who might be interested in planning some fun events for fellow seasonal campers here at MarcoPolo. Maybe you know a great band that would be awesome to have at the campground, or maybe it’s someone who ‘calls’ square dancing, or is it a great comedian….we’d love to hear your ideas. Pop me an email at as I look forward to your suggestions.
