During the annual Camping Québec congress, which was held on October 27th, 2018, Camping Aventure Mégantic received the most prestigious award in the industry when awarded with Camping of the year 2018.
It is the most prestigious award in the camping industry, which recognizes the exceptional work done by a campground to differentiate itself by the initiatives taken towards customer service, human resource management, and its outstanding operations in general.
We also have received the prize of “Batisseurs d’aujourd’hui” for a third consecutive year, from our investors.
The Great Adventure!
In May 2015, a new campground with 168 camping sites opened its doors in Frontenac, with brand new installations, heated saltwater pool, water slides, a kid’s playground, a multi-sport area and animation for the whole family. In addition to the four-season ready-to-camp units (Cabania, MegaPOD or Wooden Yurt), we have added a Lodge, which opened its doors in 2018. Since the beginning of the adventure, the three associates, Julie Rouillard, Jacques Boulanger, and Francis Therrien have multiplied the efforts to make the Camping Aventure Mégantic a quality four-season leisure destination, jumping from a 4-star to a 5-star rating in 2018.
The team aims at long-term development management strategies, notably through the use of high-quality materials and sometimes, recycled materials. Some of the equipment was recycled from the stores and buildings of downtown Lac-Mégantic, and the waterslides come from a former Water Park of the region. The fences, which delimited the perimeter of downtown of Lac-Mégantic, now delimit the campground’s dog park, while an old bus was recycled as an entertainment venue for teenagers.
The judges praised the energy management processes put in place by the management team, such as the reduction of water consumption in the sanitary blocks, as well as the water recycling system used for the waterslides and water-park. There are also movement-activated lights in the public areas and an area dedicated to the recycling of hazardous material for our clients.
