The Camping and Caravanning Club

Franchising with the Camping and Caravanning Club

Many franchising opportunities promise the earth – but we deliver. The earth, or namely green spaces, is what The Camping and Caravanning Club is all about. Our sites are a fabulous place to be – beautiful green spaces, offering a family atmosphere and a clean, safe environment. We are dedicated to our network of sites, to the camping industry as a whole, and to ensuring that we provide the best possible service to all our members. As the second-largest sites operator in the world, the Club is committed to giving members a high-quality service that keeps them coming back time after time.

A historic club

The Club was founded in 1901 by six young men camping in Berkshire and we are the oldest club of our type in the world, with nearly 730,000 members in 305,000 households. A number of notable people have been associated with the history of our Club including Captain Robert Falcon Scott, Lord Baden-Powell and his grandson, the third Lord Baden Powell. Our President is Julia Bradbury, the television presenter and outdoors enthusiast.

What is a Camping and Caravanning Club Franchise?

Due to its ongoing success, The Camping and Caravanning Club is expanding its network of sites by granting franchises to suitable candidates to establish and run their own sites. Franchisees have the benefit of trading under our brand name and with continued support from us. The initial term of the franchise agreement is ten years and all franchisees have a right to renew for an additional ten years at the end of the agreement.
The Club conducts regular research into the industry and our own membership, which has given us a real insight as to where we are, and how our industry is growing. The camping industry itself is thriving and with over 1.3 million pitch nights spent on Club Sites annually, there is a huge opportunity to build your business with the backing of a trusted, well-respected organisation. We represent all forms of camping offering your campsite franchise the variety and trustworthy name necessary to be a success.

Could you be a Franchisee?

You do not have to own a site already to become a franchisee. The franchise scheme is open to existing site and land owners who feel they would benefit from becoming a “UK Club Site” and also those new to the sector looking to purchase a site. In order to process an application from an existing site owner, we will first evaluate your site to determine whether it will complement our existing network. For new entrants to the sector, the Club will work with you to help identify suitable sites for acquisition.
