Home > Peterson Spirit Award

Escapees RV Club was founded in 1978 in order to connect RVers and offer a structure for befriending, supporting, and helping each other through the unique struggles that are part and parcel of the RV lifestyle. Building and strengthening community has remained our primary focus throughout our decades of service to RVers. Over time, this mentality gave birth to an often-used phrase among our membership, “caring and sharing.” We adopted this as a core value of Escapees RV Club as a testament to the passion our members share, both for the RVing lifestyle and for supporting each other.

As we celebrate four decades of serving RVers, we want to observe and uphold the spirit of our founders, Joe and Kay Peterson, and the feelings of community fostered through caring and sharing. To do this, we have created the Peterson Spirit Award, a prestigious honor to be granted to Escapees members who demonstrate our core value by going over and above the expectations of others in order to support a fellow RVer in need.

How do members earn the Peterson Spirit Award? It’s simple- continue demonstrating an attitude of caring and sharing in the way that SKPs have done for more than 40 years!

Do you know an Escapees member that goes above and beyond?

More than one award may be presented in a given month if the review panel determines that there is more than one individual or group deserving of a recognition during that month. Conversely, the review panel may decide that there are no nominees worthy of recognition in a given month, in which case no award will be presented.
