About District Associations and Regions


District Associations (DA)

A DA is made up of members who operate on a voluntary basis to form a group; this group organises temporary camping events for up to 5 days (a Meet) or up to 28 days (a Temporary Holiday Site) usually with entertainment and activities planned. These events can be held anywhere in the UK, and members are welcome to attend any Meet, whether it’s organised by your own DA or a different DA elsewhere in the country.

Upon joining the Club you are automatically assigned to your local DA based on your home postcode, however, you can change this to whichever DA you wish to be registered with. Simply contact the Secretary of the District Association you would like to move to, and they will send you an Opting Form to complete.

About our Regions

The Club’s District Associations are grouped into 13 Regions, each covering Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Each Region organises a whole host of camping opportunities including Meets and Temporary Holiday Sites and in rotation organise the Club’s major annual event The National Feast of Lanterns.

An elected representative from each Region, District Association and Special Interest Section sits on the Club’s National Council, the Club’s governing body of elected members who make the Club’s policy decisions on behalf of members.

District Association websites

Many of our DAs have their own websites where you can find out more about what's going on in your area.
