Canadian Camping Appreciation Weekend is a national initiative coordinated by the Canadian Camping and RV Council and its members to thank their campers for their patronage and to help celebrate the importance of the Camping and RV lifestyle.
Private Campgrounds throughout Canada will be able to participate in the Camping Appreciation Weekend from coast-to-coast, many offering discounted site fees and events in support of Care Camps, a charity that sends Canadian kids battling cancer to specialized oncology camps where they can enjoy nature, childhood, and fun.
Campers can access a special weekend stay offer of two-nights, get the third night at 50% off or other special discounts at participating campgrounds.
“CCRVC is excited about the opportunity to again partner with Care Camps during our 7th Annual Camper Appreciation Weekend to help with their fundraising efforts to give children with cancer the chance to get outside and enjoy the camping experience. We are truly honoured and proud to be a partner of Care Camps and we are looking forward to a great Camper Appreciation Weekend!” said Cara Csizmadia, CCRVC’s Membership and Benefits Coordinator.

“The importance of Canadian Private Campgrounds has been brought to the forefront since the COVID 19 pandemic when we saw more and more Canadians look towards camping for the first time as a safe and healthy way to get outdoors and vacation responsibly” said Shane Devenish, CCRVC’s Executive Director.
“Our Campgrounds offered the opportunity for families to spend time together, create lifelong memories, and discover Canada’s natural landscape and they have never been as important to the well being of Canadians and international travellers as they have demonstrated over the last 3 years.”

About Care Camps
Since its inception, Care Camps has raised more than $18 million so kids can attend camp free of charge, with no additional cost to their already financially burdened families. Through its charitable fundraising efforts, Care Camps will provide necessary support to send kids with cancer to medically supervised cancer camps where they can have fun, build awesome friendships, feel the joy that comes from camping and spending time in nature, make memories that will help them heal and ultimately return home feeling renewed and filled with hope.
