NL Campgrounds need to open May 2-4 weekend
I’m asking all NL campers to sign this petition to open public and private campgrounds on Victoria Day weekend 2020, which is normally the beginning of the regular camping season. My husband and I have been avid campers since we met in 1992. We love the outdoors, the fresh air and yes the socializing. We understand this will not be a “normal” camping season as we have enjoyed over the years, but it’s our happy place where we feel most relaxed as we leave the hectic work life behind for those few days of stress free outdoor life. We do agree that the common areas of a campground should not open yet, such as playgrounds where children play freely and huts where adults gather. Restrictions NEED to be in place to keep us, our families and friends safe from covid-19. We are not children. We are adults with common sense. We NEED our happy place to keep us sane. Rules will not be broken, or we risk being evicted from our campground. Both of us can live with this, can you? Please sign asking our government and Health Department to reconsider and open our NL campgrounds by the Victoria Day Weekend 2020.
