The Camping & Caravanning Club

National Camping and Caravanning Week (NCCW) aims to get the British public engaged with camping and caravanning, and to raise the profile of our great hobby.

If you’re not familiar with the event, NCCW is run each year by The Camping and Caravanning Club, to coincide with the late May Bank Holiday. Since the first event in 2001, the week has seen both world-firsts and records set. Activities have included the most people wearing paper crowns at any one time to celebrate NCCW 2012 which coincided with the Golden Jubilee and a camp out by the Club President, Julia Bradbury overnight on top of London’s O2 arena to start NCCW 2016.

NCCW 2018 has a walking theme; readers of the Club magazine, Camping & Caravanning, have listed this as the top activity they enjoy when out touring. The Club is teaming up with the British Mountaineering Council (BMC) on the Mend our Mountains campaign. We're encouraging everyone who values the hills, mountains and landscapes of Britain to club together in supporting the things we all use, from bridleways to paths and bridges which are all vital in shaping our experiences in the great outdoors.

The Club is marking the week with a VIP camping event at Alton, The Star Club Site.  The event will be packed with family fun activities, live music and celebrity appearance from Andy Torbet, Club member and TV Presenter.  Industry partners are supporting the week with competitions and special offers, all aimed to help you start your camping and caravanning adventure.
