What is a SKP?
was originally used as an abbreviation of Escapees. (Say S-K-P fast and
it sounds like Escapees.) Many members began calling themselves SKiPs
because it was easier to say. It has become a commonly used nickname.
Escapees (SKPs) are Special Kinds of People who are always ready to
help each other, but S-K-P can more accurately be used to designate the
three distinct concepts on which the club is built.
S - Stands for Support
important benefit of Escapees is the support members get from each
other as they travel. Because some Escapees travel long distances from
their home base and families, and because they may be on the road for
many months at a time, it is important to be part of an extended family
of travelers. Support also includes the many benefits and optional
services that the Escapees Club provides.
K - Stands for Knowledge
Members often say that the money-saving tips they get from Escapees
magazine alone more than pay their annual dues. Learning is also the
keynote of the semiannual Escapades that take place each spring and
fall. Going to an Escapade is like attending a concentrated five-day
college course on RVing.
P - Stands for Parking
One thing that makes the Escapees RV Club different from other RV clubs
is that it offers members places to park. In addition to home-base
benefits for those who join an SKP Co-Op or Rainbow Park, all Escapees
members may use short-term parking at Escapees parks. This includes
Rainbow's End campground, located at the international headquarters in
Livingston, Texas. Members also have overnight parking opportunities
with other Escapees members across the country.
