Camping Guidelines
  • Only camp in your fleet's designated area.
  • Members are limited to 7 days per camping reservation.
  • Members are permitted only 1 camping reservation at a time.
  • Dependents cannot camp on their own; a parent/adult must be present at all times.
  • Several sunshades are designated as "Day use areas only."  Camping behind those sunshades is not allowed & your tent will be subject to removal. (See camping areas map below).
  • All tents and camping activities must be located at least 3 meters behind sunshades.
  • Keep your area clean and put camping equipment away when you will not be there to allow others to make use of the sunshades.
  • No tent should remain unoccupied overnight or for over 24 hours.
  • Short term tent campers are recommended to stay at the beach while camping. Otherwise, any "day users" who visit while you are away can use the sunshade & tables near your tent. Note: Unoccupied tents do not reserve the sunshade; please do not arrive late on a busy day and expect anyone to move.
  • During special functions & events camping will not be allowed in the event area.
  • Contact your fleet captain first regarding any issues concerning tent camping should first be communicated to your fleet captains. If they are unavailable please see the gate attendant for referral to an HMYA Beach supervisor.
  • For more information please refer to section 5.15 Overnight Camping of the HMYA Bylaws.
