On Friday, car-drivers will be able to drop of their passengers and camping gear in front of the camping.  A parking steward will redirect the cars to our parking lot.  We recommend every camper to arrive already on Friday, that makes it all much easier on Saturday morning.

Same situation on Monday, but we'll create a "pick up-lane" in front of the camping area. 

On Saturday and Sunday, Summercampers with cars have to use the parking space and come on foot, because the street in front of Summercamp will be ‘walking only’.
