The National School of RV Park and Campground Management is an intensive program designed to equip prospective and current owners and managers with the tools they need to improve or develop a thriving campground business. The program is offered over two, one-week sessions that students can enroll in at one or both of the school’s campuses – the Eastern campus and Western campus.

The Eastern campus is located in Wheeling, West Virginia and hosts the program in February; the Western campus is located in Denver, Colorado and hosts the program in July. Both campuses follow the same educational curriculum and promote networking and personal interaction with instructors and students. Having two National School of RV Park and Campground Management campuses offers students more opportunities for educational enrichment that work best with their schedules and/or travel budgets. See the full list of classes taught during each session.


What Past Graduates Say:

"When I first attended the school, I was still in the process of building the campground and I had no experience as to how to run it. When I finished my first year, I felt confident and ready."
- Robin Makowski, Owner/Operator Sparrow Pond Family Campground & Recreation Center
