Learning & Playing on the Mountain

Whatever the season or the weather, Les amis de la montagne offers a variety of educational and recreational activities designed for groups of children of all ages. We cater to preschools, elementary and secondary schools, as well as to daycares and day camps. Our programs can also be adapted for groups with special needs.


During the School Year

From September to June, our top-notch educational programs and exciting outdoor activities are a natural fit for groups of children keen on enjoying Mount Royal through the seasons.



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

Programs and activities are conducted in French. Please note, however, that our educators accommodate English groups to the extent possible. All teaching materials and handouts are in French.

Mount Royal Park provides plenty of fun things for children to do at their own pace, from skating and tobogganing in the winter to picnicking and chasing butterflies in the glades in the warmer months.

As a NPO dedicated to the protection of Mount Royal, our mission lies in spreading the word about the importance of caring for its environment. Nowhere is this message more important than in the classroom where innovative green projects teach students about natural habitats and sustainability. Built on years of environmental and educational expertise, our class projects score high marks with teachers wanting to reconnect their students with nature.
