Our longstanding Summer camp program has a stellar reputation. Operating since 2009, our camps have never ceased to put smiles on the faces of children and parents alike. With hundreds of acres of land backing onto the Gatineau Hills, and a large herd of horses and ponies, Venturing Hills is quite literally a haven for young explorers and horse lovers.

Our bilingual counselors make this an all the more accessible experience for children coming from both sides of the river!

Defying Gravity: Straight to the Top!

To put it simply, this is a life-changing experience where the kids will learn what the outdoors can be for them throughout their lives. They will not only enjoy the farm and our horses, but will also learn about conservation initiatives in the region with several foraging excursions on the mountain and in the woods. We partnered up with l'École d'escalade de l'Outaouais so we could make the most of the Gatineau hills and bring the groups rock climbing. This is the first camp of its kind in the Outaouais region!

Ages 6-17

700$ + tax/week
