  • Employees
    • Wearing a procedure mask is mandatory if the physical distance of 1 meter cannot be applied.

Vaccination passport

  • Not required to go to camp.

However, we are constantly evaluating the situation and we are working in collaboration with the Association des camps du Québec (ACQ) in order to put in place the best practices and, if necessary, we will also refer to the public health authorities in order to rigorously follow the recommended protocols.

Rest assured that should any necessary changes to our healthcare procedures already in place be required, we will be quick to implement them. In this sense, the ACQ has already sent us a series of additional preventive methods and procedures to be put in place before, during and after camp stays. All stages of the journey of participants and groups of participants have been considered.

Looking forward to welcoming you, we hope that this information has been useful to you. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any other questions or wish to obtain details on the nature of the preventive measures and actions put in place.
