The Livingston/Paradise Valley KOA Holiday campground, located at 163 Pine Creek Road in Livingston, is offering campers a special Saturday of camping for $10 to benefit KOA Care Camps for children with cancer. 

The Care Camps Big Weekend event will be held Friday, May 12 and Saturday, May 13, a KOA news release said.

Campers who stay as paying guests on Friday, May 12 will receive another night of camping on Saturday, May 13 for $10. The entire $10 fee will be given to KOA Care Camps, a network of 112 independent oncology summer camps for children battling cancer.

Last year, the Care Camps Trust donated more than $1.4 million to the 112 camps, allowing hundreds of children to attend at no charge, according to the release.
