The Eifel-Camp has received many awards for their high standard and good quality of their offers.

 

 

Silver medal at the national competition

The Eifel-Camp was awarded the silver medal at the national competition „Exemplary campsites in Germany” at the “Caravan-Salon 2006” in Düsseldorf.
In the framework of the competition funded by the Federal Ministry of Economy and Technology and in co-operation carried out by the ADAC, the Federal Ministry of Camping Economy in Germany, the Caravan Industry Association, the German Caravan Trade Association, the German Association of Towns and Municipalities and the German Centre for Tourism, the offer for campers, the marketing strategy as well as the model for quality assurance and environmental compatibility were carefully assessed. The result was also influenced positively by the campsite’s equipment and facilities suitable for many specific target groups and its personalised support service.

Only campsites, which had qualified by winning the regional competition organised in 2005, were allowed to participate in the competition „Exemplary camp sites in Germany”. The Eifel-Camp won the gold medal in North Rhine-Westphalia’s regional competition.

During the laudation the Eifel-Camp received a lot of praise: ”The Eifel-Camp pursues the concept of addressing the needs of all age groups in an exemplary way. Especially the division of the various specific target groups into different areas of the campsite was achieved successfully. The campsite possesses a broad range of offers for children and adolescents. Next to the extensive, supervised holiday programme, it also offers a skater park, a separated youth room within the gastronomy area, possibilities for adolescents and separation from other target groups, and the opportunity to hire go-karts, motor-scooters, motorbikes, bicycles and mountain bikes. The Eifel-Camp employs an innovative, multimedia-based marketing strategy, which is also used for customer retention. A model example of their marketing strategy and customer retention is their very informative and inciting web page www.eifel-kids.de, which has been especially designed to address and integrate children.”

 

Gold medal

Most recently a gold medal was won at the competition “Exemplary camp sites in North Rhine-Westphalia 2005”, which was presented to the Eifel-Camp at the trade fair “Travel / Camping 2006” in Essen.

Rolf Hartmann (1st on left side), mayor of Blankenheim, and Erich Schnell, head of the press office travelled a long way to congratulate the Eifel-Camp. The certificate and the gold medal plaque were presented to Ernst Lüttgau (3rd on right side), manager of the Eifel-Camp, and Udo Leunig (2nd on right), groundkeeper of the camp site, by Fritz Rötting (1st on right), director of IHK Aachen.

The jury’s comments were: “The camp site is organised exemplarily. The facilities, orientation towards individual target groups and service offered to guests are perfect. It is clearly noticeable that the operators identify with the camp site and that the guests’ well-being is their main concern.”

The competition was carried out by the “Fachverband der Freizeit- und Campingunternehmer in NRW e.V. (FFC)” (trade union of leisure and camping contractors in North Rhine-Westphalia) and the “Nordrhein-Westfalen Tourismus e.V.” (registered association for tourism in North Rhine-Westphalia). The idea is to point out excellent achievements and to increase the number of high-quality camp sites. The initiative is funded by North Rhine-Westphalia’s Ministry of Economics, Middle Class and Energy.

The Eifel-Camp with two further camp sites will represent the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) at the nation-wide competition “Exemplary camp sites in Germany 2006”.

 

Eifel-Camp receives quality certificate

As part of the event “Qualitätstag Rheinland-Pfalz“ (“Quality day Rhineland-Palatinate”) that took place on the 27th of April in Rockenhausen, the Eifel-Camp was awarded the certificate for high quality business by Walter Strutz, State Secretary of the Ministry of Economics, Transport, Agriculture and Viticulture of Rhineland-Palatinate. The certificate was accepted by Ernst Lüttgau, manager of the Eifel-Camp, and Rebecca Schomers and Sabrina Noel, quality coaches.

The Eifel-Camp is the only camp site in North Rhine-Westphalia with this certificate. Out of c. 100 camp sites in the Eifel region next to the Eifel-Camp located in Blankenheim-Freilingen, the camp site Prümtal in Oberweis close to Bitburg was also awarded this prestigious certificate.

The Eifel-Camp will also attach great importance to high service quality in the future to ensure that our guests are happy to come back.
