Why choose us ?
Camp facilities and installations meet the highest standards for quality and security. Facilities and equipment are inspected frequently to make sure that everything is in perfect shape for your kid to enjoy safely. Our camp is regularly visited by inspectors from the Ministry of Health and the Quebec Camp Association, and has always obtained top marks for its safe and nurturing environment.
Camp counsellors and staff are rigorously selected for their professionnalism and experience in childcare, and all are certified in first aid and resuscitation/CPR. For all activities outside of the main camp site, counsellors carry first aid kits and communication devices in order to insure they can get assistance if need be.
FACILITIES AND EQUIPMENT
Transportation between the airport and the camp is insured by Opikawa’s exclusive van and driver. From the moment they step off the plane to the moment they come back home, your children will be in good hands at all time.
The beach area is supervised by a certified lifeguard at all times. In all aquatic activities taking place outside the swimming area, children and counsellors wear lifejackets.
