Ages 13 - 17 (Urban explorers)

Registration is closed.

This camp is specially designed for teens who need a little help to build their independence and social skills! Campers will have an opportunity to make friends by actively participating in planning camp activities and exploring Québec daily while developing their communication, cooperation and conflict resolution skills.

It’s an eclectic day camp that combines having fun, learning new skills, enjoying a variety of activities and getting involved in the community for a summer that’s packed with new discoveries!

  • For four weeks or more: $250

We will make every effort to offer a space to families who have already registered. As a last resort, we may have to cancel some registrations on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

These are a few examples that may help you understand what offering a day camp under the current conditions entails.

We would also like to remind you that, although the government has announced that day camps can open, it might reverse its decision at any time and cancel day camps this summer.


All low-income families with one or more children registered in a day camp managed by an organization on behalf of the City of Québec are eligible for financial assistance. These organizations have a predetermined budget. So, it is important to contact them as soon as possible to see if you are eligible and to receive assistance for the upcoming summer.
