Go RVing Canada and the Canadian Camping and RV Council (CCRVC) are partnering again for the second annual Canadian RVing and Camping Week from May 23-28. With Canada’s 150th birthday underway, there’s no better way to experience the beauty of the nation by inviting Canadians to explore and enjoy the outdoors.
The two associations will be partnering with Make-A-Wish Canada again this year to help grant magical wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions. In addition to raising funds through the well-known Make-A-Wish star program, the partnership is 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.
Canadian RVing and Camping Week will be the unofficial kick off for the RVing and camping season in Canada. Participating campgrounds from coast to coast will offer discounted campsite rates on reservations made between May 23-28.
Stay tuned for more details regarding the 2017 Canadian RVing and Camping Week.
