Soquel, CA – If you're heading to the 2023 Soquel Camp Meeting, there are a few essential updates and recommendations to keep in mind. From facilities to packing essentials, and local amenities, we've got you covered.
The Large Auditorium is Back!
We are thrilled to announce that the Large Auditorium is open for use again! It was previously off-limits due to maintenance, but the yellow tag has been removed. Attendees can now enjoy events and gatherings in this spacious venue.
Bring Your Own Bedding for Tent Accommodations
For those staying in tents, it's important to pack smart. The campsite has discontinued the provision of metal bed frames and mattresses. Attendees are advised to bring their own air mattresses along with a pump for inflation. Additionally, placing a tarp on the tent floor under the mattress is recommended for added comfort. Since nights and early mornings can be cool, you might have to add some air to your mattress every two or three days.
Cash Services Unavailable
Please note that there will be no money exchanging services available at the camp this year. This includes cashing checks, exchanging dollar bills for coins, and no ATM on site. If you plan to use the laundry machines, make sure to bring your own quarters.
Adventist Book Center – Offsite Operations
The Adventist Book Center will not be operating at the Camp Meeting this year. However, it will be open in Clovis during the same time. The Center is planning a one-day Truckload food sale of cases of canned food, which will require pre-ordering and pre-payment.
