Adventures by Land, Sea, and AirYou might ask, "What are HOPs all about, and what do I get out of a HOP if I attend?" Attending a HOP does not mean just having fun, enjoying the sights of a particular area, eating delicious food, being bused to the venues; it also means creating lifelong friendships and memories.
You will find that every HOP is different, and each one targets unique locations, special events, and theme-related activities to create a fun-filled, adventurous SKP outing. Some HOPs involve touring, while others consist of activities such as the Rose Parade,the Grand Canyon Train Ride, Niagara Falls, the Stampede, extreme rafting, and ATVing..
There are even cruises for your at-sea experience!
One of the best parts of this program is that, when you sign up for a HOP event, Escapees does all the work-the planning, reservations for campgrounds, restaurants, tours, and meals. All you do is register, then show up.
We invite you to join us in the fun and adventure of one the HOPs listed below; we're sure you'll have a great time.
