The Camping and Caravanning Club has joined forces with the British Mountaineering Council (BMC) to get the nation active outdoors through walking and camping.
This year, National Camping and Caravanning Week runs from Monday, May 28 to Sunday, June 3, to coincide with the Late May Bank Holiday, and is the Club’s annual celebration of all things camping and the great outdoors.
Walking is considered the number one activity for campers – whether a gentle countryside stroll from the campsite via a local pub or a more strenuous trek in the mountains. And by teaming up with the BMC, the Club wants to highlight vital footpath repair work needed in the UK’s 15 National Parks. The BMC’s Mend Our Mountains campaign aims to raise £1million for repairs.
