About the CDDA

County Down DA (CDDA) is part of the Camping and Caravanning Club and was formed in 1974.

We are one of the three DAs and a Motorcaravan Section base in Northern Ireland.  When you join the Camping and Caravanning Club, DA membership is initially allocated on the basis of where your home address is.  Although your card shows a DA allocation, you are entitled to camp with any DA or unit anywhere in the UK.

This Web-site is designed to be a means of communication between our members about matters relating to CDDA in particular or the Camping and Caravanning Club in general. Members may also advertise their own camping equipment for sale. Posts regarding external events which do not directly relate to the business of either the Club in general of CDDA in particular will not be authorised.

There are many benefits of Club Membership (which can be seen on the Club’s website) but the main one is to be able to join us from March to October, camping across the province at weekends.

Hope to see you at one of our meets.


Camping with a DA

Camping with your local group or District Association (DA) is one of the best ways to make the most of the great outdoors whilst making new friends at the same time. The Club has 93 DA’s spread across 13 Regions.

They offer some of the most inexpensive camping available and you’ll always be guaranteed a warm friendly welcome. Members are welcome to attend any Meet, whether it’s organised by your own DA or a different DA elsewhere in the country.
Your local DA is shown on your membership card and is based on your home postcode. To belong to the same DA as family or friends it’s easy to change or ‘opt’ to a different DA. Simply contact the Secretary of the District Association you would like to move to and they will send you an Opting Form to complete and return to them together with your Membership Cards.
