Print the LIST of things to bring for the SUMMER CAMPEvery summer, for more than 48 years, friends gather at La Ferme d'André. Girls and boys, aged 5 to 15, francophones and anglophones, arrive from all corners and take over the grounds. There are so many things to discover and to reinvent: One hundred acres of fields and forests, barns, an arts and crafts studio, a pool, a wooden teepee, more than 20 horses to ride and all sorts of animals to pet and feed. A reassuring atmosphere, great meals and regular bedtimes... the rest of the day belongs to the children and to their initiative and imagination. They forge their own relationships, find their favourite activity and create their own schedule. The carefully selected camp counsellors accompany them along their extraordinary adventures. They embark with the children on a journey of discovery in a fun and respectful fashion. Campers are always in good hands at La Ferme d’André thanks to our super team! Motivated, dynamic and enthusiastic, our counsellors will make you truly make child stay unforgettable! Lodged in a magnificent century-old house, the children get a good night sleep in dormitories that have been converted for their comfort. They share their meals with the counsellors in our colourful and lively dining room. The rest of day, they roam every parcel of The Farm: the Tarzan Barn, the Animal yard, the Rabastan, the Bunnydrome...

List of items to bringPRINT THE LIST OF THINGS TO BRING (summer camp 2019) This is a very precious checklist to keep at hand when packing your child’s luggage. Don't forget! You must identify all your child’s belongings! (Toothpaste, rain boots, socks, etc…)
Arrivals and departuresEvery Sunday between 2 and 4 PM. Please, do not arrive before 2 pm!!
What’s for lunch?All meals are cooked on location at La Ferme d'André. Our menu is nutritious and well-balanced. A good part of the products used to prepare the meals come directly from our farm. Meat, poultry, eggs, fine herbs and vegetables are featured in our meals. The children are welcome to help out in the kitchen. They can either pick vegetables in the garden or get involved with meal preparation. Now that's a hands-on approach to learning that green peas do not grow in cans but rather in nature! The campers are also welcome to set the tables, and if they wish, they can help with the dishes while singing the camp’s own songs or listening to the latest hits. Of course, everything is done in a collaborative and helpful way.
Here are a few examples of meals and snacks that we offer:
Oatmeal, various types of cereal, 2% milk, orange juice, honey, jam, peanut butter (or cream cheese in case of allergies), toast (whole wheat bread or sesame bagels), bananas, eggs (occasionally)
