Summer Camps: several options available for citizens of Vaudreuil-Dorion
The registration period for summer camps will begin on April 27th at 12:30 p.m. for Vaudreuil-Dorion residents. Various options are available, including a new one this year: Animation Jeunesse Sports camps.
So, in addition to its usual Summer Camp program, the Animation Jeunesse association will be offering sports camps in several disciplines including basketball, Dek hockey, climbing, recreational cycling (Récréa-vélo) and tennis. Sports fans and children interested in discovering new sports activities are welcome to join.
Also new this year: A fitness camp for teenagers aged 13 to 16 designed by the Centre Multisports. This option features a 10-week program whose goal is to help young people adopt healthy lifestyle habits through physical activity, as well as lectures on nutrition, mental preparation and physiology. Other specialized camps offer interesting options for children and include theme-based camps led by L’Air en fête (astronomy, magic, science, artistic development, etc.), a gymnastics camp led by Gymini and a soccer camp led by FC Trois-Lacs.
Finally, for the second year in a row, the City will again be offering a playground option in several parks across the territory. This is a more flexible option that does not require registration. From Monday to Friday, camp leaders will be on site between 9 a.m. and noon and between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. to entertain children, who are free to come and go as they please. It is important to note however that this free option does not provide child supervision like the other day camp options, and should be simply considered as another alternative to lend support to families.
“City Council wanted to bring the playground option back to our youth. It was a great success in 2020 and the citizens appreciated this flexible and free initiative. In addition, the camp offer is very diversified and I believe that parents will be relieved to see that despite the pandemic, their children will have access to the usual Animation Jeunesse camp, but also to several thematic camps that are related to their fields of interest. Our goal is to make life easier for parents and to entertain the children after a difficult year for everyone", commented Mayor Guy Pilon.
The camp brochure is currently available for consultation on the City’s website.
