The Camping and Caravanning Club has given us guidance on when we can open up meets, THS's, and start camping.

The statement below was sent to Unit Secretary's on the 26th February and is subject to change at short notice following any further government announcements.

12 April – This will be our earliest opening date for sites in England. It is likely that we will not be able to open facility blocks, so we will only be able to welcome self-sufficient campers.


17 May – This is likely to be our earliest opportunity to open facility blocks.


21 June – We have this tantalising date. If all goes to plan, it’s when we just might be able to get back to some form of normality.


Scotland is a little behind England with 26 April being the earliest likely opening date for campsites. This will be with restrictions which are yet to be published. It is likely Scotland will continue to operate a Tier structure.


The Welsh government has indicated 1 April as the earliest opening date for self-contained accommodation, while the Northern Ireland government hasn’t indicated a re-opening date for tourism.


In terms of Meets and THSs, the Executive Committee are happy for you to operate these in line with the opening of Club Sites.  However, please continue to operate Meets and THSs as campsites, not as social gatherings with activities.


When at a Meet or THS we ask that you familiarise yourself with, and follow the latest government guidance on social distancing, numbers allowed to meet and bubbles.


As you will be aware, these dates are subject to change, and we ask you to keep an eye on the Club’s website, which we will keep updated, as and when any one of the governments announce changes.

        Let's have some fun......

What is this close up object?
