Summer camp

Summer camp

Adventure Challenge Camp for young people aged 10 to 14 years old

The Kinadapt summer camp was created for Paméla. As a child, she was not a fan of more traditional day camps …

She needed:

  • Surpass oneself and achieve oneself
  • Take care of nature and its inhabitants, create concrete projects, run on trails …
  • Team working
  • Improve physical and manual skills

What could be better than a training center with 30 km of trails, where are living 90 dogs, 30 chickens, 2 horses and a few cats and rabbits to achieve these goals!


  • Introduction to farm work
  • Initiation to animal care (30 chickens, 2 horses, many cats and 86 dogs!)
  • Involvement in husky training
  • Multisport training (open-water swimming, trail running, hiking, canicross, mountain biking and outdoor yoga)
  • Ecotourism experience and interpretation of nature and wildlife
  • Involvement in 3 C missions (Conception, Creation and Construction)

Children are supported and supervised by a kinesiologist, a child life specialist and various guide-interpreters and instructors.

Camp coordinators:

Carole Turcotte, childlife specialist

Paméla Turcotte Boutin,  BSc Ecology and Horticulturalist

It is not a camp exclusively filled with entertainment activities. There will be times to have fun, times to surpass oneself and more challenging times. This will allow the development of useful tools for life: communication, acceptance of differences, perseverance, resilience, and much more!

    • No refund, a credit will be granted if cancellation 1 week before the start of the camp.
    • COVID: no refund, but the credit can be used on any activities at Kinadapt.
