The Association Leading Campings of Europe celebrates its 30th birthday

The most prestigious association of European camps – “Leading Campings of Europe” – of which Camp Čikat has been a member since 2019, is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. Camp Čikat, after a long-term investment cycle and raising its quality of service, became the proud 40th member of this association in the already mentioned year of 2019.

This is the result of recognition of the great effort put in by the owner as well as by the staff to provide the best possible service and ensure an outstanding quality of service. Camp Čikat is one of 2 Croatian camps that are among the 45 best camps in Europe, as this exclusive group numbers today.

The beginnings of the Leading campings of Europe

The group itself was created in 1994, as a result of an informal meeting and exchange of ideas between 3 friends and colleagues, also the owners of camps Union Lido, Südsee Camp and Playa Montroig. Armando Ballarin, Peer Thiele and Antonio Gimenez shared the same vision and concept of development of the camping industry and wanted to extend the highest quality standards they had set in their own camps to other camps as well, those that deserve it and meet certain criteria. The trio soon moved on to tangible action, and the Leading Campings of Europe was founded. They also agreed on what exactly the Leading Campings of Europe brand symbolizes, as well as what distinguishes the campsites that are members of the association.

Quality and experience above all

Leading Campings is a symbol of a vacation experience in nature that exceeds all expectations. All member camps are carefully managed by the owners and friendly professional staff, and the camps are characterized by top-quality sanitary facilities, a large selection of sports and leisure activities, as well as outstanding accommodation options, from mobile homes to glamping and luxury pitches. Camps that are members of the association are categorized with 4 and 5 stars and are all located in idyllic locations along rivers and mountains. Despite the fact that the camps are of exceptional quality, they are continuously improved through numerous investments and innovations.

What sets apart the members of the group are the trainings that are regularly held in one of the camps, as well as the annual exchange of experiences, besides constant advancement and exchange of experiences through a common platform.

30 years of quality service

Today, the Leading Campings brand is synonymous with excellence in the quality of service in the European camping segment. No group has more international recognition and professional awards.

From the humble beginnings of the group with only 3 camps, Leading Campings of Europe today has as many as 45 camps from 10 countries that are leaders in their market segment and constantly strive to provide an unforgettable experience for all their guests.

The 30th anniversary of the Leading Campings of Europe will be appropriately celebrated in each of the member camps during the weekend of May 4 - 5, 2024 with a corresponding program and the distribution of matching free Leading cards with 300 bonus points for all guests who already have a Leading card, as well as for those who will receive it at the time of their stay.
