The date has been set for this year’s National Camping and Caravanning Week, which will run from 25-31 May.

NCCW is The Camping and Caravanning Club’s annual campaign to showcase the joys of camping in all its forms and has been running since 2001.

This year’s theme is ‘new to camping’ and the Club will launch a series of exciting competitions in the coming weeks to win great camping kit and accessories. The star competition gives people a chance to win a Swift Basecamp 4 camping crossover vehicle (CCV) worth over £22,000. For a chance to win, enter online at www.campingandcaravanningclub.co.uk/competitions.

Sabina Voysey, Director General at The Camping and Caravanning Club, said: “National Camping and Caravanning Week is an important date in the diary and spans the Spring Bank Holiday when many people turn their thoughts to holidays and long summer days.

“We want to share the benefits of camping and caravanning as a way to explore the wonderful countryside and attractions on our own doorstep, plus spend quality time together away from the distractions of technology. The Club is using National Camping and Caravanning Week to share these messages and we’ve got lots of exciting ways planned to get involved.”

In recent years the Club has marked NCCW with the first-ever floating campsite on the Thames (2019), lighting up the Great Ridge in the Peak District National Park at night with the British Mountaineering Council (2018) while the 2016 event saw Club President Julia Bradbury camp overnight on top of the O2 in a world-first.
