Regional Meetings & Mini CampEx

Each spring we host regional meetings across the province to bring the members together prior to the start of the camping season. Each meeting features a marketplace where campground owners can make their spring purchases. The rest of the day features guest speakers. Members enjoy meeting with one another as they gear up for a new year and find that they learn lots of new things to help them through the season.
