The NAFCAree is a fun filled, weeklong camping event usually the third week in July. You must be a member of NAFCA to attend this event.
The site is chosen at the May Council of Chapters Meeting for the following year from proposals submitted by NAFCA members. The member proposing the site does not have to be the chairperson to run this event. Once a chairperson is appointed, and a committee is formed, they spend a year planning all the events. A trip is planned for each day except arrival and departure days. Some of the popular trips have been a boat ride, train ride, dinner theater and bus tours of the area. Usually, there is a meal or two served and evening activities. You can do as much or as little as you would like.
Sign up for this fun event, renew old friendships and make new ones! All while exploring an area you may not have visited before. You will be glad you did!
Reservation forms and articles will be in the Campfire Chatter.

Proposals for NAFCAree are due to the NAFCA Board by March 1 of the year prior to the rally. Please send to President Linda Ostiguy, firstname.lastname@example.org
Why so early? We need to review and publish them in the April Chatter for the vote at the Council of Chapters meeting. Anyone can get a proposal. The person submitting it does not have to chair the event. Choose a location that has a good number of area attractions for trips. Once you know where to go, look for a campground nearby that can accommodate at least 50 rigs for the week, traditionally the 3rd week in July.
What questions do I ask the campground to get started?
· What is the weekly group rate for W/E/S/C campsites including taxes and fees?
· What is the rate for tent sites?
· What is the availability and fee of rental units or cabins?
· What is the campsite electrical amperage?
· What is the cost to guests for an extra night?
· What is the cost for extra adults/children per rig?
· Would we be able to have all sites together in one area?
· When would the deposit be due and what is the cancellation policy?
· What do you have for campground amenities such as pool, game room, dog park, etc?
· Is there access to a hall or pavilion?
· Is the hall and bathroom handicap accessible?
· Will a golf cart be available to rally committee?
· What are some suggestions for local attractions and group discounts?
