Canadian RV and Camping Week is back after taking a COVID vacation!
The Canadian Camping and RV Council (“CCRVC”) is excited to announce that the sixth annual Canadian RVing and Camping Week will be taking place May 25 - 29th, 2021. Canadian RVing and Camping Week serves as the official kickoff to the camping summer season in Canada when campground members of the CCRVC and their customers gear up for a fun and safe summer of camping.
The importance of campgrounds by outdoor enthusiasts was amplified during the COVID 19 pandemic when more and more Canadians looked at camping for the first time as a safe and healthy way to get outdoors and vacation responsibly.
Campgrounds offer an opportunity for family bubbles to spend time together, to create lifelong memories, and to discover Canada's natural landscape. This has never been as important to the well being of Canadian families as they are today.
Participating campgrounds will offer their own way to celebrate the return of their campers during Canadian RV and Camping Week which may include special events, discounted overnight fees and/or specific activities to commemorate the occasion.
Many campgrounds have committed to supporting Care Camps, a charity which supports children with cancer having a network of over 100 specialized summer camps throughout Canada and the United States for children battling this dreaded disease.
The Canadian RV and Camping Industry contributes over $6.2 billion to the economy, employs 67,000 individuals, contributes over $3.4 Billion to Canadian Tourism, and has seen its popularity boom amongst consumers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We invite Canadian’s from coast to coast to visit their local privately owned campgrounds during Canadian RV and Camping Week to celebrate the start of another camping season!
