About the Club

image~21407The Camping and Caravanning Club is a national organisation run by its members. So that all members are properly represented at national level, the country is divided into Regions of which there are 13 in all. These Regions are also divided into more local areas based on postcodes, which the Club calls District Associations, affectionately known as DAs. There are 93 DAs in total. When you join the Club you are automatically allocated membership to your local DA. Details of which DA you belong to are printed at the bottom of your current membership card.

As well as Regions and DAs, there are also a number of Special Interest Sections within the Club that cater for members that like to camp with other like-minded members. These sections are also divided into local areas so whether it is the unit you camp in – lightweight tents, trailer tents, motor caravans or caravans, or the hobby you enjoy – canoeing, boating, walking, mountain biking and many more, you’ll find that one of the Club’s Special Interest Sections caters for you.

The Central Counties Region embraces the counties of Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Lincolnshire and the Metropolitan County of West Midlands.

If you are a member of the Camping and Caravanning Club, you will find a wealth of information in club handbooks that are given to all members on joining.
