CAMMAC has a permit to sell alcohol. You are therefore not allowed to bring your own alcohol into the cafeteria or any of the public areas.



A free Wifi network is available in the Main Pavillion, with limited access outdoors near the building. There is no password to access the wifi: CAMMAC-GUEST.



You may bring your own kayak or canoe to CAMMAC, however, you must have your boat pressure washed before arriving, to avoid the spread of invasive species into Lake MacDonald. The boat wash station is located at 2811 Route 327 (at the fire hall). All boaters who do not comply with the obligation to wash their boats may be subject to a fine imposed by the municipality.



A washer and dryer are available in the refrigerator building in the campground.



CAMMAC is not responsible for items lost or forgotten. If you realize you have forgotten something, please contact customer service. If we find your lost item, we can mail it to you at your expense. Please note that all items remaining in lost and found at the end of summer will be disposed of.



The nursing station is located in room 207 of the main building. A board indicating where the nurse may be found at any given time is posted near the reception desk.



Open every day during summer. Hours are limited during other programs – the hours will be posted on the door. You may purchase meal tickets (if you don’t have a meal plan), snacks, cold drinks, ice cream, recorders, musical supplies, paper, and toiletry articles.

The tuck shop offers alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages at a reasonable price: local microbrewery beer, specialty coffees, and a selection of SAQ wines are available. You may run a tab during the week only if you are 18 years of age and over, but please remember to pay it before leaving.



Smoking is prohibited in all buildings, including practice studios and bedrooms, as well as on the beach, on the tennis court, and near any game areas.
