A day at La Ferme d'André promises to be an unforgettable day in the enchanted setting of a centennial farm!Since 1969, in an environment specifically designed for them, thousands of children have staked their claims to La Ferme d'André. Supervised at all times, they can choose from a wide range of activities to their heart’s content.In this highly unconventional educational setting, even the accompanying adults start to see the youngsters in a different light. After visiting 60 summer camps in Quebec a couple of years ago, the Quebec Camp Association granted La Ferme d'André with the ''Top Pick'' award!
