The Burton Historical RV Site - Kootenay Rockies, BC
The 4th Canadian RVing and Camping Week ran from Tuesday, May 22 to Sunday, May 27, 2018 with 23 campgrounds located in British Columbia participating in the annual event that showcased all that Canadian camping has to offer (see map and list below). Many of these RV Parks are also participating in Camping Appreciation Weekend September 7- 9 – 2018.
Camping is an affordable family activity that promotes a sense of community, creates life-long memories and encourages Canadians to discover Canada’s rich landscape and engage with nature. A recent report, commissioned by the Camping and RVing BC Coalition, found that more than 2,054,330 campers in the short-haul markets of BC, Alberta and Washington are likely to camp or RV in BC in the next 2 years. So it pays to plan ahead and make a reservation.
RVing and Camping Week is a celebration of camping across Canada, while helping to make wishes come true with Make-A-Wish Canada. Go RVing Canada and the Canadian Camping and RV Council are pleased to partner to help raise awareness of the benefits of camping and to help make wishes come true for children facing life-threatening illnesses.
On Saturday, May 26th, around dusk local time, campers gathered around campfires and roasted marshmallows and s’mores all across Canada in support of Make-A-Wish® and Canadian RVing and Camping Week. Keeping those with life-threatening illnesses close to their hearts. If you were not able to attend a local event, but still want to contribute then consider making a direct donation online.
Mark your calendar for May 21 to May 26, 2019 to participate in next year’s annual event celebrating the RVing and camping lifestyle.
