The father of modern camping was Thomas Hiram Holding, who camped as a young boy in North America as early as 1853. Later, he went on canoe and bicycle camping trips in Great Britain and Ireland. In August 1901, he created the Association of Cycle Campers in Berkshire, England. This organization and others combined to become the Camping Club of Great Britain and Ireland in 1907, an organization still active today.
