An important dimension of Sans Souci is the Centre's completely bilingual atmosphere. Sans Souci's camper population is approximately half francophone and half anglophone, giving all campers an excellent opportunity to learn a second language. ...
Founded in 1970, Sans Souci is a bilingual camp specializing in the expert instruction of English classical horseback riding and horsemanship. Certifications by the OCA, QCA and Cheval Quebec attest to the camp's commitment to quality and safety in its programs and facilities. Directors awarded the 2014 CCA Award of Excellence. International clientele.
Founded in 1970, Sans Souci, as the name suggests, has provided worry-free programming for more than five decades. Owners Carolyn and Don Sedgwick have a long involvement in the equestrian world, and bring a high level of professionalism to the programs. It’s about learning skills, yes, but—as with any quality camp—it’s also about joining a community and being granted a window onto another culture. For campers who attend in part to grow their language skills, there’s the linguistic culture. Even better, perhaps, is the equestrian culture expressed here, one of care, patience, stewardship, and the values of participation. Safety is rightly part of it, though in this setting, it comes as a corollary of respect—respecting the animals, peers, and oneself. Also as with any camp, the activities are in service of something greater. At Sans Souci those are growth and confidence. The staff and directors come directly from the Sans Souci program, which is a great sign of its health. That the children of the owners have now taken staff roles is a nice sign, too. It’s truly a family affair, whether born into the Sans Souci community, or joining for the first time.
