Uniform Policy Exceptions:
KOA will provide an exception to this policy for individual KOA Kampgrounds that have special circumstances such as location or a property theme that warrants special consideration from KOA, Inc.
Exceptions will be granted only to the location making the request provided that the proposed uniform shirt meets the guidelines above and these two additional guidelines:
A) Shirt pattern has at least 50% KOA yellow (PMS 109).
B) KOA logo must be embroidered on to left breast of shirt and meets the same specs we used on the polo-style and long- and short-sleeve yellow uniform shirts.
Communicating This Policy:
Going forward, KOA Merchandise will manage and communicate KOA approved uniform shirts that qualify a campground for the President's Award. If a KOA desires to deviate from our standard polo-style shirts or long- or short-sleeve yellow t-shirts, it will require approval from the Merchandise Dept. in order to meet the President's Award requirement.
Sales of Uniform Shirts:
A) Sales and fulfillment of our t-shirts, polo-style shirts, long- and short-sleeve buttoned shirts are handled by Graphic Imprints.
B) Uniform shirts are not to be sold directly to campers by KOA, Inc. or by KOA Kampgrounds. However, they may be awarded as prizes or given away as gifts.
