Camp Amy Molson is a residential camp for inner-city Montreal children, aged 5 to 13 years old. Camp Amy Molson offers 3 sessions of 15 days each. The staff-to-camper ratio is better than one to three, so that all the youngsters are guaranteed very personal care.
There is an exciting program of activities, especially created to capture the imagination of young children. The campers learn to play on the peaceful 180-acre lakeside site...a far cry from noisy, steamy pavements. As a rule six youngsters sleep in each well-constructed cabin, each in his or her own bunk bed. Two counsellors also sleep in the same cabin, so the campers are never alone.
Our mission is to provide underprivileged children with a happy, outdoor holiday where campers can build self-esteem, develop positive relationships and learn valuable life skills in a context that promotes group learning and nurtures each child individually.
Summer at Camp Amy Molson is an extremely rewarding experience, for both children and staff!
