The Canadian Camping and RV Council (CCRVC) will officially launch the 2015 camping season in Canada by hosting the inaugural Canadian Camping Week from May 19-24, 2015.
The Canadian Camping Week will feature special events and participation from CCRVC member campgrounds across the country.
Campground associations from British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, and New Brunswick, representing about 1400 campgrounds, will work with the CCRVC to celebrate the Canadian camping experience.
Parks Canada, the Camping and RVing in BC Coalition, Go RVing Canada, the Canadian Recreational Vehicle Association (CRVA) and Recreation Vehicle Dealer Association of Canada (RVDAC) are also supporting this exciting, first ever event of its kind in the camping industry.
The 2015 Canadian Camping Week will showcase the best of what Canada’s camping sector has to offer.
Special events will include a discounted weekend camping rate, fishing contests, jamborees, and bonfires.
“We want every campground across the country to participate in promoting the camping and RV lifestyles,” said Maryse Catellier, president of CCRVC.
“Join us in showcasing what Canadian camping is all about.”
The first-ever Canadian Camping Week is scheduled to run from May 19-24. The week will conclude with participating campgrounds across the country offering two nights of camping (May 22-23) at $50 plus tax.
“Campground participation in the Canadian Camping Week is free, and 300 campgrounds are already registered,” said Catellier.
Participating campgrounds and RV Parks are required to offer either two nights for $50 plus tax on May 22-23 or organize an event to promote camping in Canada during the course of the Canadian Camping Week.
Interested campgrounds need to register by March 31. To register, visit www.campingweek.ca and download the registration form.

Hysterically funny, amazingly talented people. That’s what I think of when I think of Canada. That, and cold beer. And mountains.
