Updated Tuesday June 18th, 2019,11:45 a.m.

Five (5) important things you need to know to better understand how this year’s Camp-Meeting at Camping de la Rivière Nicolet is significantly different than those we’ve had in the past years.

  1. INFORMATION ON DRIKING WATER ON THE CAMPSITE
    • Bring your own drinking water.  The water on the campsite can be used to wash dishes or for swimming, but the owner cannot guarantee perfect water safety.
    • During the week, you can buy water at the campsite reception for 3$ / 4L.
    • Sabbath morning, NO SALE of water, but we plan on providing drinking water on sabbath morning.
    • Plan to bring your own reusable water bottle so that you can fill it on site.  We want to avoid the use of recyclable plastic bottles.
    • For those of you staying over on the campsite, external washing water is available. For example, there is washing machine that charges 1.50$ a wash (and a drying machine that charges 2.00$). These appliances take 0.25$, 1$ et 2$ coins so you must carry change with you.
  1. FOOD WILL NOT BE SOLD OR DISTRIBUTED ON THE CAMPSITE
    • Bring your own food.
    • This situation is not voluntary on our part: we are REALLY sorry. There is no facility for refrigeration or on-site cooking equipment that can feed hundreds of people.
