Clubs are waiting for government guidance before an official opening date

Shower facilities will remain closed to enforce social distancing

A message on the website reads: “At the current time we plan to open the majority of Club Sites, including as many as possible with toilet block facilities.

Campers can begin planning their trips to the outdoors as sites plan to reopen in the next few weeks – but without toilets and showers.

However, campers may not be able to enjoy the full experience as there will be a number of changes at the campsites in a bid to comply with the government’s social distancing guidelines, to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Changes include:

“Some campsites however, will open without toilets and showers. Campers will also be able to pitch their own toilet tent on their allocated pitch.”

“Opening with toilet and shower facilities will only happen if we’re allowed to do so by the government.

In addition to this, the organisation will not operate glamping-style Ready Camp Safari Tents this season.

Before sites can reopen, clubs will wait for guidance from the government before they can announce opening dates, the Sun reports.

More importantly for people yearning for a holiday abroad,campsites, hotels, B&Bs and gîtes will reopen in some places on June 2.
