What if your child is reluctant to leave for several days? 

If your child seems reluctant to leave for several days, avoid promising to pick him up if he does not like the camp. He might be tempted to test your promise and may wish to leave at the slightest difficulty, without even trying to overcome it. It is best to encourage him to finish his stay, and then decide if he will return the following year. Your child will fit in better if he doesn’t decide to leave before he even arrives at camp. However, if it is in his best interest to return home, La Ferme d’André 2.0 will make the necessary arrangements with you. 

When you arrive at camp, say goodbye to your child and then let him join the group. This is the first step towards a good integration into the camp. Have confidence, the entire team of La Ferme d’André 2.0 will spare no effort to ensure that your child has an extraordinary experience and that you can enjoy a well-deserved leave. 

Leave with a smile on your face. 

How can I help my child to sleep away from home?

It is highly recommended that you discuss this with your child beforehand so that they are ready for family detachment and can adapt to the evening routine. It is important to assess his level of concern in order to give him tips and tricks to have confidence in himself and fall asleep in peace. Other children will also be sleeping at La Ferme d’André 2.0 for the first time. Everyone must be well prepared. Sound advice is published on the internet to help your family prepare for your child’s stay. 

What does your child do in the evening before bed?

Your child follows a comforting routine: he/she sits around the campfire, grabs a snack, sings and plays his musical instrument, if he wishes. Finally, your child brushes his teeth, puts on his pyjamas and goes to bed around 9:30 p.m. 

Are the boys and girls separated in the dormitories?

There is a dormitory for girls and another one for boys. In the event of a lack of beds, boys and girls could exceptionally be grouped in the same dormitory. The girls’ dormitory, located on the second floor of the main house, is equipped with an air conditioner to counter the summer heat and ensure a good night’s sleep. 

Where does your child sleep?

Your child will sleep in one (1) of the two (2) dormitories located in the stone house, with camp monitors nearby. Your child will also be able to sleep a few nights in La Grange à Tarzan. Camp monitors will accompany your child to ensure his safety and that of the other children. 

What is the monitor-child ratio?

On average, there is one (1) camp monitor for six (6) to ten (10) children. The camp monitors are always at their posts at the various strategic locations of the farm in order to safely accompany the children in their activities.

Who supervises the camp?

Each instructor supervises between six (6) and ten (10) children. Our instructors undergo nearly 60 hours of training and participate in our onboarding and integration program before the start of the season. Many of them also receive first aid training to ensure the health and safety of the children.
