Hello fellow members.
Welcome to the web site of the Chiltern Region, a Region of the Camping and Caravanning Club.
2023 is a celebration year for Chiltern Region as it is 50 years old and at the AGM held at Cardington Village Hall on Saturday 13th May, I had the honour of being elected Chairman once again, a task I do not undertake likely. If you see me out and about on the field, please come and say hello as I am always available for a chat and to offer help and advice to the new campers amongst us.
The Chiltern Region Yearbook which is replicated on this website is a useful tool for planning your camping season.
To add to the celebrations of our 50th Anniversary, we will be holding our annual dinner and dance (postponed from Jan due to reasons beyond our control ) will be held at the Oxford Spires on Saturday 4th November with favourable rates for those wishing to stay at the hotel. Please watch out on this website for the booking form.
Let’s hope for good weather for this camping season and we at Chiltern Region hope to be able to say hello to many of you out on the field some time or at the dinner.
Chiltern Region Chairman
Some information about our Region
Chiltern Region is one of the 13 Regions throughout the UK and Northern Ireland, that make up The Camping And Caravanning Club. Chiltern Region, is split in to 5 smaller D.A.’s (District Associations). These are: Aylesbury Vale DA, Beds DA, Bucks Herts And Middlesex DA, Herts And North London DA, Oxfordshire DA. There are also several active Sections operation in the Region. These are Club wide groups that usually have smaller sub groups in most Regions.
The Region will be 50 years old in 2023 having been founded in 1973 and is still going very strong.
Members are allocated DAs within their Region automatically when they join the Club. To find out which DA you belong to please check your card. Although every one is assigned a local DA when they join, there is no restriction as to who you can camp with in the Club. In fact if you are planning a holiday this year, look around to see if any local DA’s have holiday meets on in the area. Holiday meets are longer meets some times 4 weeks long and are a good base to go off and explore the best of Britain. Do be aware however you may need to book with the DA in question ahead of time.
The region its self holds several meets every year and are a combined effort of all the DA’s. For more information on these events (Look at the Menu Bar). Most of your meets will be held by your DA, for a list of DA and Section websites Click Here
Don’t forget your valid membership card and I am sure you will receive a warm welcome. Hope to see you on the field. We hope to see you out and about soon!
