About this camp


In the heart of a regional park, Kéno (est. 1966) offers a life experience. Welcoming campers from Canada and abroad for a complete French immersion, Kéno specialises in out-tripping expeditions with possible stays from 5 to 45 days. As a residential camp, we suggest a plethora of traditional activities. We combine modern equipment with up-to-date safety measures without compromising the rustic experience. Daily, the counselors guide and support campers in surpassing themselves as individuals and as a group. At Kéno, where most campers and all staff are native French speakers, youth will speak French in an engaging context. Don’t miss the chance to offer valuable skills, experiences and friendships to your child!

Director's Message


François Vezina, Executive Director and General Manager

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 all children?


At Camp Kéno, for now close to 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.

Stories & Testimonials


Northern Québec

Canoe tripping, whatever the length, is sure to teach you something; wether it be an interesting fact about nature, a quick tip that makes your paddling strokes more efficient or a more profound knowledge that you gain through long out-tripping expeditions.My outdoors expeditions have taught or relentlessly reminded me : finesse over force, humility, to enjoy the scenery, to laugh no matter how drenched you may get! I now carry these lessons with me wherever I go and whatever I do.

How many flat tires must one kid patch, before you call him a man?

What a beautiful week my son spent there! He loved the trails so much that he asked me to go ride with him there. It's not everyday that your teenage boy deliberately wants to spend an entire weekend in your compagny! The fun singletrack trails are fast and flowing with several small loops of twisting turns where you could spend all day. They have a network in a remote but beautiful location... probably the most beautiful woods where I have mountain biked in the East. I wish I was 10 again, going to bike camp there.

Never forget.

Kéno helped me grow during a decade’s worth of summers, and inspired me to return as an employee during my university years. I got to relive Kéno from a whole different perspective, learn the inner workings of this dedicated group of people, and more importantly, help my own groups of kids feel the same way about nature, the camp and life as I felt when I was in their shoes. For these reasons, I will never forget Kéno. It’s a part of my life now.

Where the heart is.

Another wonderful summer draws to a close...It is with a heavy heart that I say : I'll see you next summer my friends. For that Kéno is the most beautiful place in the world to me.Thanks to all for being who you are and making the the camp what it has been for the past ten years, and what it still remains.
