Welcome to Social Camping

The British Caravanners Club (BCC) is a special interest section of The Camping and Caravanning Club. We are big enough to be a national section and also small enough to be friendly. Each area is run by a committee of its own members, and we always welcome your feedback good or not so good!


Although we may historically be the Touring-Caravan Section, we welcome all types of unit from tent to motorhome, as long as you are a member of The Camping and Caravanning Club, you are always more than welcome to visit any of our sections weekend rallies or Temporary Holiday Sites.


What is Social Camping?

Social Camping is a term the Club uses to describe the Meets and Temporary Holiday Sites organised and managed by our District Associations, Regions or Special Interest Sections. We chose this term because it explains what this style of camping is all about – camping events run by passionate members, for members who share the same interests. Social Camping offers some of the most inexpensive camping available, and you’ll always be guaranteed a warm, friendly welcome.

Weekend Meets


A weekend meet will normally take place over a weekend, but can be open for up to 5 nights, also known as rallies. We run them all year round, offering basic facilities of fresh water and somewhere for waste disposal (Elsan). They make fantastic value social camping.

Temporary Holiday Sites

Similar to weekend meets but situated in popular holiday destinations like seaside resorts and countryside retreats, Temporary holiday sites offer members the chance to camp affordably throughout the UK for longer periods than weekend meets as they can be open for up to 28 days.



Periodically throughout the year, BCC areas host featured events. They can fall into the Weekend Meet or Temporary Holiday Site category but with much more emphasis on entertainment. Our stand out event is our annual Feast of Lanterns.
