Generations Foundation: Learning from nature and each other

Everyone can benefit from the great outdoors.

Camp Amy Molson in Grenville-Sur-La Rouge accepts campers 5 to 13 and Camp Trails End at Kinkora’s beautiful private lake in Ste-Adolphe-d’Howard welcomes those 6 to 17.

Of the more than 350 underprivileged children who attend each camp, 95 per cent live below the poverty line and/or in foster homes.

The excitement begins before the departure date and grows when campers meet at the transportation depot. They quickly make new friends.

A typical day begins with morning songs and a hearty breakfast. All campers get to swim, boat and kayak. Amy Molson offers archery, nature lore, outdoor physical fitness, and theme days.

At Trails End, creative projects include building gardens, a mini-farm with chickens, tree planting and habitat enhancement for birds, butterflies and fish.

Skits and special performances are presented by both the campers and staff before the children are tucked into bed at around 8:30 pm to dream of the delights they will have the next day.
