Club Membership - Age Concessions
Age concessions; CAMC appear resistant to implementing. Why? Doing so would increase pitch usage. Pitch uptake this year is well down, predominantly, I suggest, due to what many consider inappropriate increases in pitch/night costs. Current mid-week discounts are insufficient to attract members. The Club's attitude to age concessions is preventing increased pitch use and potentially encouraging membership drift to other clubs who've seen the light on age concessions.
Question by Paul Moon, answered at the AGM
The Club has always operated under the ethos that all members are equal and the Club should work for the benefit of the membership as a whole not just the individual member. The Club doesn't provide an age-related price reduction as we believe the fairest approach is to provide the best price possible for all campsites, available to be booked by all members.
The Club does provide special offers and price promotions throughout the year which has helped members save c.£800k during 2023. Often our price promotions are available during the middle of the week - supporting members who are able to be more flexible. Our recently launched Price Drop for 2024 across 1.5 million pitch nights and the 2024 Getaways offer of an additional 10% off stays booked in 2023 for 2024 are examples of us reducing prices wherever we can.
