Thunderbird RV Park wins award

BC Outstanding Achievement Award for Community-Owned Business of the Year

The BC Achievement Foundation Hosted the 6th Annual Achievement Awards in Vancouver on Oct. 15 at the Vancouver Conference Center in the West English Bay Ball Room for the BC Aboriginal Business Awards. Thunderbird RV Park & Campground, owned by the Campbell River Indian Band, has won the BC Outstanding Achievement Award for Community-Owned Business of the Year.

Rachel Wiley, Co-owner and Operator of Seabreeze Take-Out/Catering nominated the Thunderbird RV Park.

“Once we were nominated, the process of filling out the nomination package was both detailed and lengthy,” says Park Manager Sandra Malone. “The criteria for the award included submission of a variety of reporting requirements such as a detailed business statement, financial records, testimonials from our guest over the last few years and reference letters from charitable organizations and verification of community involvement. The park’s success ultimately benefits both the thriving aboriginal community and the City of Campbell River and we were able to demonstrate this effectively to the Advisory Jury Board who chose our business.

“We would like to thank the Campbell River Indian Band Chief, Council and Management for their continued support to help us achieve our goals by offering our guests the best we can to make their visit to Thunderbird RV Park and the City of Campbell River a memorable experience – one they will share with friends.”
