Caravanning Week 2016

National Camping and Caravanning Week 2016

campsite in france - camping-parc de la vanoise-savoie

Mon 30th May to Sun 5th June

National Camping and Caravanning Week was set up in the year 2001 by the The Camping and Caravanning Club to celebrate the club turning 100. Also to encourage more people to camp and use caravans and to highlight the fact that the club now had a record number of people camping and caravanning which in 2003 was just over 90,000. Since then the club has blossomed to figure nearing half a million. This rise was down to many factors including the World Tent Pitching Championships and an on-going media campaign.

The Camping and Caravanning Club is a paid membership service which gives discounts to it`s users who frequent the campsites in the UK and Europe that it owns, manages or certifies.

NCCW Kids Outdoors Camping Challenge

With this annual event fast approaching, the theme this year is about the Kids and help them with camping. The main aim will be to encourage children to spend more time outdoors including camping and having fun with their friends and families. The club`s roadshow will be on the road up and down the country promoting the event and helping people to enjoy the great outdoors.

New To Camping

If you are thinking of taking up camping or caravanning then the spring time is a great time to start preparing for a holiday spent in the outdoors and the 16th National Camping and Caravanning Week would be a lovely opportunity to meet fellow campers and caravan lovers. Here are some reasons to take up camping and caravanning:

  • The health benefits of the great outdoors

    The flora and fauna - the smells and the birdsong to enjoy

    Sunsets and Sunrises can`t be beaten

    Breath-taking scenery

    The kids will love it, enough said!

    Economic - cheaper than a hotel

    The sounds - the rain can sound like a Sympathy of Nature

    Barbecues - a taste sensation

    Freedom of the open road and the feeling of where shall we go next!

    Variety

    FRESH AIR!!!
