Ketelsen RV is one of the Midwest’s oldest RV dealers. Camp Courageous’ dear friends, Johnny and Marge Ketelsen, founded the business in 1962 in Marion, IA, and grew the business through providing exceptional value and service to their customers. After more than half of a century, the tradition continues!
For years, Gary Ketelsen (Johnny and Marge’s son) has coordinated a Ketelsen RV customer appreciation open house event that includes a free-will donation pancake breakfast benefitting Camp Courageous, one of his parents’ favorite charities. This ‘family of friends’ type event is one of Camp’s top annual fundraisers, as the Ketelsen family matches the proceeds from the breakfast dollar-for-dollar.
A wonderful, heartwarming family that carries on a rich tradition of caring for family, friends, and those in need. The Ketelsen’s support of Camp Courageous spans across four generations… considering that Jeremy and Stef’s children, Jack and McKinley, held a lemonade stand for Camp Courageous this past summer!
