Gramping Association encourages Australians to get Gramping
Survey reveals: More than eight million Australians want to go Gramping with their families
Australian families are encouraged to join the trend of ‘Gramping’ with the launch of the Gramping Association. Gramping is a new trend that involves three generations (grandparents, parents and kids) pitching a tent, spending quality time together and enjoying the great outdoors!
Gramping is taking over campsites and backyards across the country, with a recent survey conducted on behalf of the Gramping Association, proudly brought to you by Aerogard and Mortein, showing that more than eight million Australian adults would like to go Gramping.
In response to this growing demand, Australians can now easily get involved in the “Gramping” trend by joining the just launched Gramping Association www.grampingassociation.com.au - a community of ideas, inspiration and knowledge, on all things Gramping.
Membership to the is free, with members rewarded with friendly Gramping tips, events, offers and giveaways.
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. It 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 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, such as the Mortein and Aerogard to have a mozzie free Grampout, 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.
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. Stuart Lamont, Chief Executive Officer of the Caravan, RV & Accommodation Industry says bring many benefits to families.
"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.
The launch of the Gramping Association has been made possible through the support of Aerogard and Mortein, providing Mozzie free family fun in the great outdoors!
