A recent study found that many Americans will forgo summer vacation because their budget doesn’t have room for the expense in addition to regular bills. One company wants to help vacationers enjoy a getaway with a pay what you can campaign.

Under Canvas is an adventure-hospitality company which offers luxurious “glamping” accommodations at some of the country’s most iconic national parks and monuments. The company has just launched a new campaign to help families enjoy a summer vacation without breaking the bank.

According to a study done by Bankrate.com, 39 million Americans won’t be going on a summer vacation this year because they can’t afford it. At Under Canvas, we believe that the outdoors is for everyone to enjoy and should not be a privilege. Taking time to connect with loved ones #OutsideTogether is critical to our health and wellbeing, as well as igniting passion to protect and preserve our planet for generations to come. Join us in our mission to be a bridge that connects people with the outdoors! Through June 4, we are bringing travelers #OutsideTogether, who may not have the means to take a summer vacation, to apply to #paywhatyoucan for a stay at Under Canvas this summer! We will consider all applications and announce our decisions by Friday June 7, on the eve of National Get Outside Day. Apply through our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/undercanvas
