Campers must expect to have to comply with many regulations in order to be able to engage in this activity this year in Quebec.

While the campgrounds are busy preparing to reopen for the summer, Camping Québec recalls that customers also have a role to play in the smooth running of the season, which will be launched June 1.

The President and CEO of Camping Québec, Simon Tessier.

Campers are therefore asked to comply with the regulations and signs they have put in place, in particular those concerning closed infrastructure, buildings and leisure areas. On its website, Camping Québec indicates that it is “essential that everyone applies to camping the directives that are prevalent in society in general concerning gatherings of 10 people or less, the physical distance of 2 meters and the measures of ’hygiene. "

Hygiene, distancing and other regulations involving campsites in pandemic times will evolve based on government announcements and will be adapted as necessary.

The public health authorities granted this week the necessary authorizations to reopen from 1 June next the camping sites of the seasonal and traveler types, in addition to rentals of ready-to-camp units, outfitting establishments and other tourist accommodation in Quebec. The marinas will also be accessible again from this same date.

The full interview with the President and CEO of Camping Québec, Simon Tessier, is available here.

The Association also requests the cooperation of campers regarding compliance with the following specific directives issued by the government (regulations in effect on May 29, 2020): Source : Camping Québec
