The 4th Annual Canadian RVing and Camping Week, a national initiative coordinated by the Canadian Camping and RV Council , the RVDA of Canadathe Canadian Recreational Vehicle Association  and Go RVing Canada, is set to run May 22-27. According to a release, the event is designed to kick off the Canadian camping season

In addition to participating campgrounds offering special discounts and camping fees during Canadian RVing and Camping Week, the Canadian Camping and RV Council and Go RVing Canada are again inviting campgrounds coast to coast and their campers to join them to help raise money for Make-A-Wish Canada by coming together and participating in a Wish Event on May 26 at 10 p.m. Campers will be encouraged to purchase a Wish Star for $2 each with 100% of the proceeds going to Make-A-Wish® Canada.  

Through the generosity of participating Campgrounds and RVDA of Canada dealers and their campers last year, the event generated over $20,000 in donations which helped a young seven-year-old boy named Parker with a rare form of cancer to have his wish come true of owning a pop-up trailer so that “he and his family can enjoy more time camping, fishing, and hiking.”

In addition to helping a Make-A-Wish dream come true, the  ampground that donates the most money to will be rewarded with $1,000 in online media and advertising by GO RVing Canada.
