Special Military Active
Recreational Travelers
Emphasis on serving Veterans - As a social club, we have chapters for golfers, computer users, and
for travelers who just like to travel.  Married or single, owning an RV, 5th wheel, pop-up, our chapters offer
activities include simple pleasures such as playing games, socializing, sharing potluck meals on
weekend camp outs, and monthly luncheons; to involvement in community activities, and volunteering at
Veterans' Homes and Hospitals.  Members volunteer and participate in Habitat for Humanity, the Marine
Toys for Tots, Sew Much Comfort, and others.
A National Muster is held every year, in states with so much to see and do--FL, OK, AL, WA, CA,
AZ, TN, VA, TX to name a few.  These musters command attendance from 100-250 rigs and you
can't beat the price.  Much like the National Muster, S*M*A*R*T also holds Region Musters for all 8
regions across the U.S.  View our Muster Calendar to find a Muster near you.
