Learning & Having Fun on the Mountain

All our environmental programs and outdoor activities take place on Mount Royal. As one of Montreal’s most popular green spaces, it’s the ideal place for summer day camp groups to rediscover nature, brush up on history and biodiversity, and experience the great outdoors right here in the city. Our approach focuses on awakening a sense of wonder in each child and deepening their overall understanding of the environment.

We offer half-day or full-day outdoor activities for groups of children 5 to 12 years old. Les Amis de la montagne invites you to come have some outdoor fun as of June 28!

Duration: 2 hours

Ages 5 to 8

Starting point: Beaver Lake Pavilion, 2000 Remembrance Road, Montreal Quebec H3H1X2

Elzéar, one of Mount Royal’s squirrels, has decided to scatter tests and challenges throughout the forest. Only those who successfully complete them will be able to unlock the mountain’s secrets. Explore the mountain through fun activities and games. Who knows, maybe Élzéar will reveal all the forest’s mysteries!
