Campvention History

Every July Family Campers & RVers gather at our week long annual Campvention.  Since 1998 the site and hosting of the event has been rotated between the seven regions of the organization.

One highlight of the week is the Teen Queen Pageant that culminates with the crowning of Miss FCRV.  Each state/province may enter a contestant in the pageant who is judged on talent, poise, beauty, and personality to represent our Family Campers & RVers.

Since our annual business meeting commences during Campvention, we also hold a Membership Meeting and an Executive Board Meeting in addition to Program Directors meeting with their respective program representatives in the states/provinces.

During the week there are also activities for all ages:

  • Teen Sports & Dances
  • Adults Games (horseshoes & washer toss)
  • Youth Activities
  • Seminars
  • Commercial Area
  • Parade
  • Evening Entertainment
  • and Much More!
