On September 13 – 15, 2019 privately operated campgrounds coast-to-coast are participating in the Canadian Camping Appreciation Weekend to celebrate the camping and RVing lifestyle!

Camping is an affordable family activity that promotes a sense of community, creates lifelong memories and encourages Canadians and International visitors to discover Canada's rich landscape and engage with nature.

The Camping Appreciation Weekend is a national initiative coordinated by the Canadian Camping and RV Council and supported by the Camping and RVing BC Coalition to say thank you to campers for their patronage over the summer.

Campers can access a special weekend stay offer of two-nights camping for either $50, $60, $70 or $80 at participating campgrounds (Sep 13-14/Fri-Sat). As well as the weekend offer, many campgrounds are offering promotional stays of "Five nights for the price of four" around the weekend (check the listing offers).
