2020 Summer Programs

Dear parents,

Further to the recent developments of the situation with the COVID-19, we would like to let you know about the preventive measures that have been applied by our summer camp to keep the staff and the participants safe.

Our medical team is assessing the situation all the time and we are working in cooperation with Quebec summer camps Association (ACQ) to implement the best practices.

Be assured that if any change was to be brought to our procedures in terms of healthcare, we would immediately implement it.    

Hence, the ACQ already sent us extra preventive measures and procedures to implement either before, during or after camp stay.

All the steps of the participants and groups of participants’ path have been taken into consideration while implementing preventive measures. 

We recommend to register your child at the camp for summer 2020. Be assured that you would be fully reimbursed should the summer camp season be cancelled.

Please feel free to contact us should you have any question or if you wish to have more information regarding the preventive measures that have been implemented.

Thank you and see you on summer.
