In the middle of the construction holidays, campers are at the rendezvous in the campsites, in Estrie and for some, the activity is a must.

At Camping Beau-Lieu, the two-week construction holiday has long been sold out. It is no longer possible to find a place on weekends until Labor Day. Same story at Camping Hatley. Despite everything, a couple manages to find a place each year.
For Francine Senez and Jacques Dostie, camping is a must. Lovers make sure they have a place to camp. It was at Camping Beau-Lieu, during the western festival, that they fell in love almost a decade ago.
“Every year we come back here and we remember moments from nine years ago. We were embarrassed at the time,” recalls Francine Senez with a smile.
"It's almost sacred for us," said Jacques Dostie.
For vacationers who would like to imitate the couple, places are rather rare. The only availabilities are during the week, after the construction holidays and they are not numerous. Latecomers who would like to visit Estrie will have to hurry.
