What is CampSaver?

CampSaver helps you attract more of our members to maximise your camp’s occupancy all year round and gives our members great value places to stay. It will give you a competitive advantage to stand out from the 400+ camps nationwide. 

NZMCA started CampSaver in 2019 when our CEO stayed at Island View Holiday Park and they offered him a NZMCA member discount during the off-peak season. The Manager, Lorne, said “it’s better to sell the space at a lower rate than not at all”.

Choose the rate that suits your camp 

You can choose to offer NZMCA members 25% discount OR a flat rate of $22 for two adults ($18 for one), which applies to a vehicle, per night on a powered site. We understand some facilities, e.g. laundry, may be user pays. If a powered site isn’t available, members are aware you’ll offer them a non-powered site for the same price. You can switch between the discounted and fixed rate throughout the programme, whatever is more sustainable for your business at the time. 

There’s no minimum night’s stay. We’ll encourage members to pre-book but they do value flexibility and spontaneity. Instead of standard peak exclusions, you can exclude the peak dates that are relevant for your camp. NZMCA won’t invite any nearby camps to join CampSaver if they compete with your camp, as long as you offer CampSaver for at least four months of the year.  

How does it work? 

When they check in, members will show you their personalised NZMCA membership card (physical card or on our app). We also encourage them to ask for your 'CAMPSAVER RATE' (conditions apply, see 'CampSaver guidelines'). 

Offer period: 

CampSaver used to be a seasonal programme (winter and summer). It was so popular with members that it’s now available all year-round. Of course, we don’t expect you to offer discounted rates when there’s high demand on your available space.  

When you sign-up, let us know your peak occupancy dates that you need us to exclude. Please make the offer available for as much of the year as possible. Excluding certain days of the week, e.g. all weekends, won’t be approved. Your peak date exclusions will be in your CampSaver listing. We’ll keep promoting your camp to our members even when you’re not offering the discount.   

Opting out of CampSaver 

If your camp is changing ownership or CampSaver is no longer working for you, you can opt-out at any time by emailing [email protected]. We’ll remove your listing in all NZMCA channels and ask you to remove CampSaver ads in your channels e.g. posters and window stickers. If you decide to opt-out you understand that NZMCA may contact nearby camps to invite them to join CampSaver.
