In response to a growing demand, Australians can now easily get involved in the “Gramping” trend by joining the just launched Gramping Association, a community of ideas, inspiration and knowledge, on all things Gramping.
The Gramping trend was supported last year with the launch of the inaugural Aerogard Great Gran and Grampout, where over 460 grandparents, parents and kids set up camp on Sydney’s Cockatoo Island to celebrate the first day of summer and experienced outdoor family fun mozzie free! Since then, nearly 1,500 families across Australia have registered their own Grampouts taking place at campsites and in backyards across Australia.
Gramping Ambassador, ex-Olympian and mother Brooke Hanson, says Gramping is a fun activity for all generations.
“When I was younger I was fortunate enough to travel with my parents, who are now grandparents. Our children Cooper (4) and Billy (3 months) love Gramping with the family. Gramping is a great chance to spend quality time together whether we are making our family’s special golden syrup dumplings, making sandcastles or laughing at pops loud snoring,” said Brooke.
Brooke encourages families to sign-up to become a member of the Gramping Association for not only more information on Gramping, but also tips on how to have a great Grampout – including the essentials on what to bring and what delicious treats to cook
“The Gramping Association is a great community which brings future and regular Grampers together to share their tips, suggestions and experiences,” she continued.
Stuart Lamont, Chief Executive Officer of the Caravan, RV & Accommodation Industr agrees that Gramping brings many benefits to families.
“At a time where family sizes are shrinking and the number of people in the household has halved, holidaying with three generations is seen as beneficial to the social and wellbeing of children,” Mr Lamont said.
“Gramping is a fantastic trend which has emerged in the Australian travel industry, bringing together three generations of family in the great outdoors. Multi-generational camping is a great way for kids and grandparents to spend quality time together and is a very cost-effective holiday too,” he said.
