    The Our Kids review of Camp Mère Clarac

    our take

    With over 60 years of running camps, you could say that Camp Mère Clarac has it down to a science. And they do—they are ACQ accredited and hold 4 stars on the CITQ Classification. What does that all mean? It is guaranteed to be safe, clean, and comfortable. Not many camps can boast these kinds of ratings. Connecting with nature is one of the top priorities at Camp Mère Clarac, and they do this by offering many outdoor activities and their location on the river is definitely a plus. Many think this camp feels like home and they return year after year. The food is also a drawing point for many, with nutritious, home-cooked meals approved by a nutritionist. Staff-to-camper ratios are small, especially for younger children, ensuring not just safety, but a closer relationship with campers to ensure they are always having a great time. Laughter is a guarantee.

    Mille mercis!

    Je voulais personnellement vous lever mon chapeau et vous offrir toute ma reconnaissance! Ma fille est revenue du camp épanouie, souriante et ne fait que parler positivement de son séjour. Elle nous dit à quel point les monitrices sont fantastiques, les aides de camp et surtout, les Sœurs. Dynamiques, à l’écoute, sécurisantes. Bref, que du POSITIF !!! Au point de demander d’ajouter une semaine supplémentaire à son séjour; elle ne fait que parler du fait qu’elle a hâte d’y retourner! ... Show More

    Merci, de tout cœur!

    Merci, de tout cœur, de faire vivre à nos enfants des activités en plein air et en toute sécurité. J’espère être en mesure de lui offrir encore une belle semaine, comme celle-là, l’an prochain. Elle se rapproche petit à petit chaque année de son rêve de devenir monitrice, qui sait; peut-être un jour travaillera-t-elle avec vous ... Show More

    Thanks

    Thank you so much for providing a fantastic camp experience for my daughter. She enjoyed all the planned activities, met many new friends. As a mom, I really appreciate that you went the extra mile to accommodate her food allergies by making sure the food was delicious and safe for her to enjoy every day. It was her first time at your camp, and we are already looking forward to visiting you again next year! ... Show More

    Great experience / French immersion

    I wanted to send a thank you note to all the staff at the camp. Our kids did like the experience. They told us, they really loved Camp Mere Clarac summer camps. They had a good time and did lots of fun stuff: When they went to see and touch the animals at the farm, went into the wood, made good friends and that the food was good. By the way, believe it or not, they are actually speaking French. Of course, they make some mistakes, but the key is that they are trying to speak since they attended your summer camp. I hope we can do this more often as I believe that it makes a huge help in their French speaking. ... Show More
