Mail and phone

You can send letters by mail (make sure your child’s name is clearly written on the envelope) or leave a few in his luggage. The children have time to write letters, please provide them with pre-addressed envelopes and stamps. Children are not allowed to phone from camp. Exceptionally, the directors may communicate with the parents, should they judge it necessary. You can also send a fax (819 425-7121) or emails at the address info@camptremblant.com NB: No attached documents or animated emails please! The children don’t have access to the Internet but will receive your printed emails.

Homesickness

When your child is leaving home for the first time, he may be homesick. Counsellors are used to this and know the best ways to intervene with your child. You can help our counsellors by encouraging your child to communicate with us if he feels sad or homesick. Don’t promise your child he will go back home if he feels homesick. Normally a little effort on his part, and his counsellor’s help, are enough for him to enjoy his week at camp.

Picking-up

Children will not be entrusted by the camp’s director to a parent or any other person who does not have the legal responsibility for the child without a written and signed authorization by the person who does have this responsibility. Transfer of responsibility from the parents
