The Canadian Camping and RV Council and Go RVing Canada have partnered to host the 3rd annual Canadian RVing and Camping Week. This is an opportunity for Canadians to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday and enjoy the great outdoors and the RV and camping lifestyle.

From May 23 to 28, 2017 participating campgrounds across Canada will celebrate everything that makes camping and RVing so popular with activities, discounted camping rates, and a special fundraising initiative for Make-A-Wish® Canada. Fundraising last year raised $20,000 to help grant wishes for children with critical illnesses.

Campers can purchase a Wish Star and help cover a Wish wall at participating campgrounds with 100% of the proceeds going to Make-A-Wish Canada. On Saturday, May 27th, 2017 at 10 p.m. (local time), campers will gather for a simultaneous marshmallow roast with other campgrounds across their province – a fun initiative for campers and a great way to help raise funds for Make-A-Wish.

Canadian RVing and Camping Week will culminate in a special offer of  two-nights camping for either $50, $60 or $70 at participating campgrounds (May 26-27/Fri-Sat). As well as the weekend offer, many campgrounds are offering a promotional stay of “Five Nights for the price of Four” May 23–27, 2017 (Tues-Sat).

Parker, 2017 ‘Wish’ Recipient

Make-A-Wish® Canada
Make-A-Wish Canada is a dynamic wish-granting organization that brings hope, strength and joy to children with life-threatening medical conditions. Along with the national office, eight (8) regional chapters grant magical wishes to children in need from coast to coast. Make-A-Wish Canada is an affiliate of Make-A-Wish® International. Make-A-Wish® is the largest wish-granting organization in the world, making dreams and wishes come true for more than 350,000 children since 1980.

The ‘wish’ recipient for 2017 is Parker. Parker is 6 years old and has T-lymphoblastic Lymphoma. His wish is for a pop-up camper because “camping is my favourite thing to do”. He would love to be able to explore Canada with his family, and spend time camping and fishing together.

Donations received will go towards purchasing a Forest River Tent Camper which will be presented to Parker during Canadian RVing & Camping Week 2017 in Parker’s favourite campground.
