Camping and Caravanning Club - The Friendly Club

The Friendly Club

The Camping and Caravanning Club is the world’s oldest and largest club for all forms of camping. Welcoming tent campers, caravans, motorhomes and trailer tents, it is known as the ‘Friendly Club’ and is open to all campers.

Its ½ million members enjoy discounted rates at Club Sites throughout the UK and have exclusive access to over 1400 smaller Certificated Sites which often get you closer to the beach and local tourist attractions.

The Club is a major campaigner for the Outdoors and environment with Club Sites winning Gold Standard Conservation Awards and an Eat Local campaign to support local communities and promote quality local foods.

As one of the biggest ‘Outdoors’ member groups it is a major source of expertise on all things camping and caravanning with a mass of online articles, tools and resources available to all and a technical helpdesk available to members by phone or email.
