The Canadian Camping and RV Council and Go RVing Canada have partnered again to host the 3rd annual Canadian RVing and Camping Week. This is an opportunity for Canadians to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday and enjoy the great outdoors and the RV and camping lifestyle. From May 23 to 28, 2017 participating campgrounds across Canada will celebrate everything that makes camping and RVing so popular with activities, discounted camping rates, and a special fundraising initiative for Make-A-Wish® Canada. Fundraising last year raised $20,000 to help grant wishes for children with critical illnesses.
This year in addition to raising funds through the well-known Make-A-Wish star program, we’re hoping to host the largest simultaneous marshmallow roast with campgrounds across the country – a fun initiative for campers and a great way to help raise funds for Make-A-Wish® Canada. Canadian RVing and Camping Week will culminate in a special offer for two-nights camping at participating campgrounds (May 26-27/Fri-Sat).
As well as the weekend offer, many campgrounds are offering a promotional stay of “Five Nights for the price of Four” May 23–27, 2017 (Tues-Sat).About the PartnersThe Go RVing Canada coalition consists of RV manufacturers, component suppliers, dealers, and campgrounds.
