The Camping and Caravanning
The Camping and Caravanning Club is a United Kingdom not-for-profit
organisation involved with all aspects of camping.
Camping & Caravanning Club History
The club started in 1901. Thomas Hiram Holding was one
of the founders and is considered by many to be the father
of modern camping. He was also a founder of the Bicycle
Touring Club 1878 now renamed the Cyclists'
Touring Club Thomas Hiram Holding, wrote The Campers
Handbook in 1908, so that he could share his enthusiasm
for the great outdoors with the world. His urge to camp
derived from his experiences as a boy which date back to
the mid 1800’s.
The Modern Club
Since turning 100 years old the Club has instigated a number
of new initiatives. National Camping and Caravanning Week
was created in the centenary year to set a record for the
most people camping and caravanning at one time. In 2003,
the audited figure for number of people camping out overnight
on 24th May was 92,435.
The club now has over 330,000 members.
The World Tent Pitching Championships has done much to
raise the profile of the Club and an on-going media campaign
to encourage journalists to try caravanning for themselves.
