My children loved camp Jean-Jeune so much that they went year after year. From the age of 5 to 16 years old. they did all the troops, the expedition groups and the aspiring instructors program. Moreover, two of them became instructors.

Jean-Jeune has a long and vibrant history, and there has been a camp here since the early part of the last century. It was first created by Bishop Forget, Bishop of the Diocese of Saint-Jean, who lead fishing trips here, which then evolved into a more defined facility. There aren’t any buildings remaining from that time—the first were tents—but the desire remains the same as the one that inspired Forget: to get young people together, in nature, working cooperatively, and experiencing life in a different set of priorities than those that characterise the hustle and bustle of the city. The programming includes all the traditional activities, with a focus on cooperative games and challenge by choice. The camp has very intentionally focused its approach on the emotional needs of young people, as well as the values of ecology and environmental stewardship. All is conducted in French, which, for English speakers hoping to improve their second-language skills, makes it one of the most genuinely immersive environments you can hope to find. The camp is well run, well outfitted, within a beautiful setting. Family camp sessions allow for a unqiue experience, and for some is an opportunity to gently warm younger campers to the camp concept.
