- You can park your caravan at grass (Gärdet – on the other side of the road) or on gravel/grus (on the hill by Servicehuset/Diskhuset). There are no options of parking on asphalt (There might be options this year to park on the asphalt outside Nyhemsgården, for people with special requests and needs.)
- There will be the possibility to reserve a caravan spot together with people from your local churches. You must reserve these spots yourself upon arrival. You can reserve max. 1 spots. It is not possible to reserve some seats in advance.
- When you arrive at Nyhem you will need to register at the Main office. Here you’ll receive information about where you will be staying and other information. If you haven’t already payed then you can do it here.
- Another camp begins immediately after ours. This means that we have to clean and pick up after ourselves quickly. Those who stay at Nyhems lodgings must clean their rooms. The mattresses and beddings should be shaken and brushed outside, and the floors swept and mopped. Do not forget to return the keys. All those who have used the common kitchens and bathroom sinks are responsible for cleaning them as well.
- There are several places where you can wash your dishes:
- Servicehuset/Diskhuset (on top of the hill, close to Nyhemshallen and the Caravans)
- Gärdet (on the other side of the road – under the tunnel)
- Only those who are prepared to work hard with preparations for the camp can come to Nyhem on Saturday.
- Only those who are registered can count on having food provided. All other must wait till Sunday at 5pm.
- If you arrive Saturday with your caravan you will have to pay an extra fee of 200 SEK.

Everyone does their part – serve each other:
- We long to be a church-community where everyone does something to help, where everyone gets to join and serve each other, and where everyone is needed. The same goes for the camp, everyone is free to join in and pray for and encourage others.
- In addition we all get to serve each other by doing a practical work-task during the week. Everyone will be assigned a task, either by email or when you check in. These work-tasks are important in order for the camp to function properly. If we did not assign practical tasks we would be forced to hire people to do them, which would make camp more expensive for everyone.
- That is why we ask that you are careful to remember coming to your work-task and that you arrive on time! If you ignore your task the workload will increase for the others. In the past some people have had to do the work of 4 people, which is something we want to avoid at all cost! If for some reason you are unable to fulfill your task you have the responsibility to trade tasks with someone else or find a replacement and let us know in the office. If you already know that you are not able to do your task, please let us know by emailing email@example.com. Thank you in advance!
