National Camping and Caravanning Week 2013

24 May 2013

May 27th sees the official start of National Camping and Caravanning Week which is into its 13th year,  to celebrate everything outdoors, caravanning and camping.

NCCW is the brainchild of the Camping and Caravanning Club and to mark the occasion invites are being thrown out to the many enthusiasts we have in the UK to join them on one of their many sites. With many experiences to be had during your travels, not just inside your caravan or tent, this is the optimum time to kick start your 2013 season if you haven’t done so already.

Grab the kids, load up your gear, bundle in the dog and head off into the wide blue yonder and enjoy new experiences, possibly meet new friends and discover new places. In days where we spend too much time buzzing around like busy bees, having the chance to kick back, relax and appreciate some down time in wonderful surroundings is a great way to reenergise and recharge batteries.

Activities galore

If you do decide to choose one of the many Camping and Caravanning Club parks to celebrate NCCW then there’s a ’perk’ for everyone – be it a tranquil bike ride, fantastic options for food or family friendly games and competitions – the choices are extensive.

During the week there will be plenty of fun events happening across a selection of CCC sites including a family sports and Devonshire Cream Tea day at Moffat, great bake off at Weston super Mare, a guided walk at Lynton and bacon butty morning in Chichester – to name a few.

With many activities on offer all members of the family will be able to find something to keep them occupied.

Competition time

As part of the week there are a number of competitions being run in conjunction with CCC partners which includes the chance to win two forest adventures with Go Ape, an award winning pair of boots from Hi – Tec, a family holiday in Devon courtesy of Visit South Devon and £500 worth of Vango vouchers – to name a few.

To be in with a chance of nabbing all these goodies, head over to the Camping and Caravanning Club website for more terms, conditions and details.

NCCW 2012

In 2012 the CCC set a new Guinness World Record during their National Camping and Caravanning Week for the most people wearing paper crowns across multiple locations in 24 hours.

The period also coincided with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee which saw much celebration and frivolity in honour of ‘her maj’.

2013 is setting up to be no different in terms of what’s on offer.

Looking ahead

This year features plenty of media events hitting sites including David Bellamy guiding campers along a nature walk at the Hertford site.

You’ll then be able to join Sustrans on a guided cycle ride, have a nose around the local farmer’s market and visit the petting zoo. All visitors will be offered bacon sandwiches to set the day off properly!

Do it with style

Robert Louden, Director General at The Camping and Caravanning Club, says;  ”There are so many ‘Perks’ to experience when out camping – they can be as small as enjoying a glass of wine and watching the sunset, spotting a rare animal when out walking or even popping down to the farmers’ market to taste some local produce; either way, camping has something for everyone.

“We look forward to welcoming campers to our Club and Camping in the Forest Sites and we hope they’ll join us for National Camping and Caravanning Week to experience some of our many Club Perks!”

Where you decide to head and however you celebrate National Camping and Caravanning Week make sure you do it in style.

With temperatures on the rise, more and more sunshine on offer and long lazy holidays on the cards it’s time to get involved and head off with your caravan in tow.
