Fellowship, knowledge, and Camaraderie with like minded folks
Whether a “Week-end Warrior” or a “Full Timer” . . . retired or not, our mission is to provide opportunities for members to enjoy good fellowship and camaraderie with like minded folks.
We strive to provide resources and information regarding the operation and maintenance of our RVs. Much can be learned from the discussion forums on our website and at “Tech Talk” sessions held at chapter campouts and National Rallies. Information and problem solving shared by fellow members is . . . “priceless”.
Our website is the “Hub of the Club” that keeps us connected. Members with full access will find information on local chapters, discussion forums where fellow RV owners post questions and answers about various topics, dates for upcoming chapter campouts and national rallies, and our quarterly newsletter the “Campin Nooz”.
In addition to our website resources, the club’s many chapters schedule luncheons and camp outs throughout the year across the US and Canada. Each chapter typically has four or five camp-outs or gatherings within their geographical region. A list of these outings is published in the Campin 'Nooz and on the website in the Event Calendar.
With activities ranging from campground games to sight-seeing excursions, local cuisine to pot luck dinners, morning coffee klatches to evening campfires . . . opportunities for fellowship fill the day at chapter camp outs. Chapters are the heart of the club, where fellow members quickly become extended family. . . "priceless"
While traveling, members are invited to join in the camp outs and rallies listed on our “Activity Calendar”. The welcome mat is always out. If you happen to be a snowbird, there are several “winter” based chapter events to attend.
The 2017 Grand National Rally will be held Sept 24th-30th in New Orleans. You must be a member to attend the Grand Nationals. These events are worth the $20 membership fee alone!
The Grand National Rally's location and date vary from year to year. Typically they are held in late summer or early fall and usually last from four days to a week. Grand Nationals extend the chapter activities with the addition of evening entertainment, outings, great food, and educational seminars. Click the button to see highlights of the 2014 Grand National
and the 2015 Grand National . Highlights of the 2016 Grand National will be posted soon.
The Club has two National Rallies each year. The Florida National is normally held the first week in April for the convenience of Florida snowbirds returning home at that time. Click the button to see the highlights of the 2015 FL National Rally and the 2016 FL National Rally
On the member side of the website is a member directory, available to all paid members. Within that directory you can search for members by name, member number, city, or state. Should you find yourself in an unfamiliar area and need some local advice or assistance chances are there is a club member you've already met living in the vicinity. The membership directory will help you find them.
