A fun and safe summer camp

Ekocamp International

The summer camp is located next to a large forest and at the edge of a beautiful lake. Some activities, such as rock climbing and kayaking or river canoeing, take place off site just a few miles away.

Facilities

The camp has two buildings. Kids from the French and English programs are divided in different sections. In addition, we have two dining rooms, a kitchen, classrooms and meeting rooms.

Bedrooms and bathrooms are also located in these two buildings; each room (which includes bedding) has accommodation for four (some rooms hold six). Each room has its own sink. There are shared washrooms and showers on each floor.

Our camp is located 3 km from the town of Mont-Tremblant, where there are two medical centers. In case of emergency, the Sainte-Agathe City Hospital Center, a well-equipped regional hospital is located just 20 minutes from us. All of our staff receive first aid training and we frequently remind participants of the safety rules so that young people can enjoy the camp in a safe environment.

While your kids are at camp, enjoy:

The Laurentians has become the preferred playground of Montrealers and their neighbors from all parts of eastern North America. Travelers can explore a multitude of winding forest roads, discover quaint villages tucked away in the hills and then enjoy gourmet meals equivalent to the best to be found in Montreal.

Hiking and biking trails abound throughout the region. This is the privileged way of seeing, at close range, the impressive array of flora and fauna.

Adjacent to Ekocamp is one of the natural wonders of the Laurentians, the Parc du Mont-Tremblant. This vast park is 1,500 square kilometers (580 square miles) in area. Within its boundaries are 400 lakes, seven rivers and too many streams to count. Activities are plentiful and diverse; canoeing, camping, mountain biking, fishing, swimming, picnicking, hiking, cross-country skiing; all against a backdrop of quiet alpine beauty.
