This year’s National Camping and Caravanning Week (NCCW) is set to coincide with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

Organised annually by the Camping and Caravanning Club, NCCW is designed to encourage as many people as possible to enjoy the great outdoors under canvas or in a leisure vehicle.

It has been running since 2001 and this year the events will centre around a royal theme as the nation is treated to an additional bank holiday to mark the Queen’s 70 years on the throne.

The Club’s expecting to welcome thousands of visitors to its sites now that the touring season has officially begun.

Tea parties are to be held at a number of Club sites, including Sandringham in Norfolk, which is situated within the grounds of the royal estate.

Campers can join in with a barbecue and street party at the Cambridge Club site, while there’ll be a complimentary cream tea for guests at the Bala Club site in north Wales.

Michelle Jewell, partnerships and events marketing manager at the Camping and Caravanning Club, said: “There’s still time to join in with our on-site Jubilee celebrations.

“Take a look at our website to find out what’s taking place at a campsite near you and to enter our fantastic competitions.

“We have exclusive National Camping and Caravanning Week competitions with prizes totalling over £1,400 up for grabs, plus there’s a chance to win a Swift Basecamp 6 and Vango RVA – two awnings worth £27,000.”

The Camping and Caravanning Club was founded in 1901 and has grown to encompass nearly 100 sites across the UK.

It has more than 700,000 members, who have access to exclusive campsites and other benefits, such as discounts, advice and support.
