Summer Camp on Mount Royal

Come summertime, Les amis de la montagne invites 5 to 12 year olds to an unforgettable day camp in Montréal’s magnificent Mount Royal Park. Kids enjoy exciting outdoor activities as they explore the mountain’s natural habitat and unique sites under the supervision of qualified educators.

Spending a week or two on Mount Royal is the perfect way for kids to unplug and reconnect with nature in one of the city’s great urban parks!

Activities for this age group awaken young children to the wonders of the natural world. Children discover the forest while learning about wildlife on Mount Royal and developing an emotional connection with the environment. Through exploration activities, games and hikes highlighting the mountain’s legends and imaginary beings, youngsters develop their curiosity about the various inhabitants of the woods.

The camp includes two weeks of programming (A and B) that alternate throughout the summer. Children can be registered for one or two weeks, but can only participate once in each program. We make sure to offer a variety of activities in programs A and B so that children can experience two very different weeks. The weekly schedule of activities appears in the Parent Handbook sent to parents in early June.
