Kid Stuff
Created in 1972 by members of Patro d’Ottawa, a French-language non-profit organization that supports underprivileged children and youth through extracurricular activities, the camp is located on Grand Poisson Blanc Lake in Denholm, north of St-Pierre-de-Wakefield. Over the years, the camp has grown and now welcomes children and teens from ages seven to 17 for its one, two, three and four week summer camp programs. The camp specializes in canoe camping expeditions. All of the instructors are certified by the Quebec Federation of Canoeing and Kayaking because safety is of the utmost priority.

Families and Groups are Campers, Too
In addition to running summer camps for kids, Air-Eau-Bois also offers a full-service campground, complete with showers, toilets, laundry facilities and some electrical hook-ups. There is a sandy beach with lifeguards on duty during part of the day; and a small tuck shop selling firewood, ice and some foodstuffs. Canoes are available for rental as well.

Pick Your Activity
And if that’s not enough to entice you, the camp offers customized sessions for groups of children, adults, or families including activities such as canoeing, archery, orienteering, hiking, rock climbing and swimming, as well as educational elements including study of plant and animal life in the park. These classes run from April to October and activities vary seasonally. You can even rent one of two lodges, if sleeping on the ground isn’t your thing (providing you have lots of friends: one lodge sleeps 32 and the other sleeps 60!).
