Father of three
As a parent, you want the very best for your children. An overall aim is to provide them with nurturing and diverse experiences to help them find their way, based on their unique personnality, and reach adulthood fully equipped to live a happy and productive life.
Sending a child to camp is a terrific way of contributing to that goal. Indeed, the benefits of camp go far beyond fun and games! Studies show that children attending summer camp develop many skills: self-esteem, trust, leadership and team-building, only to name a few. Don't we all wish that for our children?
At Camp Kéno, for now over 50 years, we have strongly believed that offering children the opportunity to explore activities unavailable in their usual urban setting is a great way of unleashing their potential. Nature has a way of bringing the best out of human beings. Nestled in a terrific setting where lakes and rivers abound, Kéno puts canoeing out-tripping at the top of it's activity list, which also includes: climbing, archery, obstacle course, sailing, kayaking and canyoning. Care has been given to ensure ALL activities and challenges are age appropriate, offering campers longer and deeper experiences as they grow up.
Why choose Kéno? Because you can benefit from the added value of a French immersion environnement. Kéno offers it all: it is a certified and well-established camp, in an authentic French envrionnement offering stimulating activities.
As a parent, you surely choose the best for your children. By offering the experience of a residential camp at Kéno, you offer us the opportunity of caring for them and broadening their linguistic, cultural and personnal horizons, providing them with valuable tools for their future.
