Family Blogger Club

The Center Parcs Family Blogger Club was founded in September 2012 after we decided to bring a taste of Center Parcs into bloggers’ homes. We teamed up with the UK’s largest family blogger network Tots 100 and ran a competition for bloggers to create Pinterest boards of their dream Center Parcs break. We recruited 12 bloggers to join the club and selected a further four lucky bloggers as ‘wildcards’ throughout the year.

Each month, Tots 100 bloggers were asked to participate in a themed challenge on their blogs, from tasty treats to outdoor antics and from nature hunting to crafty creations.

Not only did we encourage all the bloggers to get involved in the challenges, we also sent them, their families and another blogger family of their choice off to their favourite Center Parcs village for a short break, so they could truly experience what it means to be a part of the Center Parcs family.

This year, we have been on the lookout for a new group of blogger families to experience all that a Center Parcs break has to offer, running a video competition to give Tots 100 bloggers the chance to become one of  our official Center Parcs Family Bloggers families in 2013/14.

We had lots of wonderful entries and thoroughly enjoyed getting a sneak peek into what you all like to get up to with your families. It was an extremely difficult decision but we are pleased to introduce the Center Parcs Family Blogger Club, Class of 2013/14!

Congratulations to all those who have been selected. This year we’ll be offering even more bloggers the chance to join the club throughout the year, so keep an eye on our page to find out how you can get involved.
