Canadian RV and Camping Week will take place from May 22-27 this year, the Recreational Vehicle Dealers Association of Canada has announced.
“Now is the perfect time to chat with friends and family about your travel plans and get excited about RVing throughout Canada in 2018,”RVDA Canada states. “The official kickoff to camping season, Canadian RV and Camping Week, will bring Canadians together from coast to coast and, at the same time, raise funds for our partner, Make-A-Wish Canada.”
RVDA Canada thanked members who supported the Make-A-Wish program last year and says it is hoping for even greater involvement this spring.
“Due to your involvement, we were able to generate over $20,000 to support life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses through our partnership with Make-A-Wish. And we’re looking to increase that number even more this year,” the association states. “But we need your help! So, spread the word and get involved again in 2018.”
