About Our DA & The Camping & Caravanning Club

THE LATE PAT COALEY, OUR CURRENT VICE-PRESIDENT WROTE ABOUT HIS LIFE CAMPING WITH NORTHANTS DA. TAKE TIME OUT TO CLICK ONTO THE LINK BELOW AND READ PAT'S ACCOUNT

A LIFE OF CAMPING WITH NORTHANTS DA

Northants DA organises meets every weekend from March to November. Most meets are within a 20 mile radius of Northampton, but some are further especially those held on Bank Holiday weekends. A copy of our sites list detailing events that we will be holding during the coming year can be found on the Sites Info page. Further details, including directions and contact telephone numbers of all these meets, can be found in the “Out & About” pages in the monthly magazine.

In order to keep costs down, most of our meets are held on non-commercial sites and it is therefore essental that you have your own sanitation and are prepared to use battery power for the duration of the meet.

We pride ourselves on being a friendly DA and hold coffee mornings once a month where details of future meets and events are given out. However, participation is purely voluntary so if you do camp with us don’t feel under any obligation to join in - some members just want to have a quiet weekend to wind down.

I do hope that you will be able to join us – come and have a look at what we do and decide for yourselves whether or not DA camping is for you. Obviously it does not suit every member’s needs, but we do have a lot of members who have found that camping with a DA has a great deal to offer. We hope that you will be able to join us in 2014.

The Camping & Caravanning Club

Northants D.A. belongs to the Central Counties Region of The Camping & Caravanning Club. The Central Counties region embraces the Counties of Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Lincolnshire and the Metropolitan County of West Midlands

There are 11 Regions of the Camping & Caravanning club in Britain, each administered by a partly elected and partly representative Regional Council. The Regions are then divided into District Associations, there are over 100 District Associations. Each District Association offers regular camping meets and social events. There are also many activities organised for the youth.

Take a look at your copy of the Out & About (a section inside the monthly magazine of the Camping & Caravanning Club) for details of DA & Region meets & rallies.

We are situated in the heart of the country and perfectly located for anyone travelling around Britain. If you are a member of the Camping & Caravanning Club you can camp at any weekend meet organised by a District Association. You may not live in our region but you can still camp with us at any time. There are very few meets that need to be pre-booked. To find out about all of our weekend meets visit our 'Sites Info' webpage

Club members are placed automatically in the Region and DA where they live.

Northants D.A. was first formed in 1955 and has grown from strength to strength. We have some regular campers that have been with us since the early days of the club. Most of the camping was done in tents in the 50's. Although there are still some tents, most of the camping is now done in caravans. It is no longer a pastime for just the hardy folk, today's modern caravans have all the facilities needed for even the most discerning camper.

If you are a member of the Camping & Caravanning Club, you will find a wealth of information in the Camping and Caravanning Club Handbook that is given to every member on joining. Visit the website at www.campingandcaravanningclub.co.uk
