« Les Camps Futés » has heard the calls from the Anglophone community…
The very essence of ‘’Les Camps Futés’’ is based on self-esteem and recognizing each child as an individual. We are proud to provide children with social and life skills.
Each morning, at 8:55am, we come together to experience a « Fireworks » moment with one of our 8 objects. These 8 objects, which are integrated into our camp schedule, is what gives « Les Camps Futés » its character and makes it unique.
Offer him tools for life
The main curriculum is Divertissement Réfléchi (DR) (Thoughtful Entertainment)
Your child will be thrilled to bring home a toolbox full of items that will help him or her become more self-confident! Camps Futés were the first camps in Quebec to offer the Thoughtful Entertainment program.
Through playful activities, the children will learn to use the graphic communication tools, the 8 Camps Futés Items. Each of these articles illustrates a specific behaviour to adopt and is associated with an attitude or a quality that stimulates self-confidence and self-esteem.These objects are integrated into the daily curriculum as teachable moments that help create a rich and lively program.
Discover these 8 items that, when integrated to the camp’s daily schedule, give it the unique and thoughtful character that is integral to the particular culture of Camps Futés.
Bringing meaning to the activities
The notion of having fun
Each child will also receive the P’tit Futé journal to help track his or her progress during the day camp. This tool, written entirely in English, is both fun and useful and allows parents to learn more about what their kids are accomplishing.

THE ACTUAL COST OF REGISTRATION
How much does a week at Camps Futés really cost? Depending on your family income, a week at camp could cost anywhere from $20 to $98. Don’t believe us? According to the government, day camps constitute “daycare” and are eligible for tax breaks. Below you will find some sample situations that will help illustrate the deduction percentages you might be eligible for, based on your family income.
*May vary depending on your family situation. Ask your accountant for more details.
Various situations for one week at camp ($170)

You need to have a net family income of more than $150 000 before reaching the lowest rates.||This is a reduction of gross income by the amount of the fees paid. This reduction in income leads to a reduction in taxes to be paid. If one of the partners has no income, the Quebec credit can be claimed.||The actual cost of a week at camp that costs $160 would be a maximum of $98 if tax credits are taken into consideration. Deductions will vary. The cost of one week at camp can be as low as only $20|
