Canadian RVing & Camping Week

Camping and RVing Week Logo 2017A Big Thank you to Operators and Campers!

Joss and Proclamation 2017 SmallThe 2017 annual Canadian RVing and Camping Week ran from Tuesday, May 23 to Sunday, May 28, 2017 and was a huge success. More than 200 campgrounds and thousands of campers coast-to-coast (with 39 parks located in British Columbia) participated in the annual event that showcased all that Canadian camping has to offer.

"The week is the official start of the RV & Camping Summer Season"

Canadian RVing and Camping Week is designed to encourage Canadians and international visitors to get outside to enjoy a fun, safe and secure camping experience with family and friends. To encourage campers in 2017 participating campgrounds offered either a special discounted rate of $50, $60 or $70 for two nights (May 27 and 28), or stay five for the price of four.

Go RVing CanaCamping Week 2017 Videoda and the Canadian Camping and RV Council partnered witParker 2017h Make-A-Wish Canada to stage the 2017 coast-to-coast fundraising initiative, with a stated goal of raising $20,000 to help wishes come true for children facing life-threatening medical conditions. The 2017 recipient was Parker, a six-year-old with T-lymphoblastic Lymphoma. Parker's wish was to camp, fish and explore Canada in a pop-up camper because "camping is my favourite thing to do." 

On Saturday, May 27, 2017 campgrounds across Canada came together and helped raise funds for Make-A-Wish® Canada with campers purchasing wish stars to post on a Wish wall and participating in a marshmallow roast. It's not too late to contribute and campers can make a direct donation online to fund the work of Make-A-Wish Canada.

Mark your calendar for May 22 to May 27, 2018 to participate in next year's annual event celebrating the RVing and camping lifestyle. Participating BC campgrounds will be posted here in the New Year.
