Brevard, North Carolina - Continuing SylvanSport’s commitment to innovative campaigns and partnerships, the company is partnering with new camping app (Android and iOS) “The Dyrt,” a better way to search for campgrounds, similar to Yelp but for camping.
Together, the two companies have partnered with more than 20 outdoor brands to celebrate America’s outdoors on a virtual content - rich road trip, while at the same time giving away daily prizes and a $10,000 SylvanSport GO Camper as the grand prize. The #GetOutAndGO campaign runs March 20 - April 28 and you can follow along – as well as enter to win the daily and grand prize – at thedyrt.com/GO.
Last week, The Dyrt launched its mobile app for finding campsites across the U.S. SylvanSport and more than 20 other brands have jumped at the opportunity to partner with this new powerhouse in the outdoor space. The Dyrt has put more than 4,000 development hours into its app, which makes it easier to search and find campsites.
The sweepstakes is a 40-day virtual road trip across the U.S. and SylvanSport is the national sponsor. As the national sponsor, the company is giving away a $10,000 SylvanSport GO.
This campaign is built around one simple truth: America has incredible outdoor spaces — spaces worth celebrating. Sometimes we look to popular national parks and long to be among their trees and hiking their trails, but in reality the outdoor spaces across our country are great, not just in the Yosemites or Yellowstones we’re so used to seeing, SylvanSport has said, according to a press release.
