The Camping and Caravanning Club have announced that they aim to reopen most of the campsites from July 4th.
An extensive list of social removal measures has been introduced, however they can only open toilets and showers if they get the go-ahead from the government.
In a statement on their website, the company said, “We currently plan to open most club sites, including as many toilet facilities as possible.
“The opening with toilets and showers will only take place if the government allows us to do so. Some campsites will open without toilets and showers.
“In order to manage our sites responsibly, we will increase our cleaning regimes; where the facility blocks are open there will be 2 deep cleanings per day and 4 additional cleanings – this poses an extra question for our staff, so we have had to look at the campsites best suited to self-sufficient campers where the blocks of facilities will not be open this season. “
These are all the measures they are trying to implement:
- Contactless check-in
- Sensible social distances: the pitches are six meters apart and will reduce the number of people on club sites with blocks of facilities
- There will be signs and warnings on the floor as a “common sense” reminder to keep two meters away from other people
- Where the blocks of facilities are open, there will be two deep cleanings and four additional cleanings per day and a guide on how many people the block can accommodate simultaneously
- Campers can also set up their own toilet tent on the assigned pitch
- In campsites where the facilities are open, they ask you that if you are able to use your facilities in your unit, you do it as much as possible
- They only allow individual bookings and with well-managed sites to prevent the assembly of large groups
- Campers will not be able to have day visitors on their pitches
- While the washing areas will remain open, common areas such as receptions, shops, laundries and play areas will remain closed, so be sure to bring essential items with you as they will not be able to sell gas.
- The service points will be open, so follow the directions for hand washing; while they have this available on the sites, they ask campers to bring their own supplies of soap and hand sanitizer with them
- No tents, pods or units with a Ready Camp Safari kitchenette will open this season
The organization said they will first welcome guests to England from July 4th, then to Scotland from July 15th, and later to Wales and Northern Ireland.

The statement added: “Being outdoors, the physical space between the pitches and with further measures of social distance, we believe we are in a good position to offer you a safe and pleasant holiday in the UK, providing a much needed break away from home “.
