Grandir en conjuguant le verbe aimer

Children with disabilities are like butterflies with a broken wing. They are just as beautiful as all others, but they need help to spread their wings.

Camp Papillon - An unforgettable stay

No time to get bored

Throughout its rich history, Camp Papillon of the Quebec Society for Disabled Children has become one of the leaders in the field of adapted camps in North America and has become the reference, here as elsewhere, in the art of supervising, accompanying, and entertaining people with special needs. Every year, it multiplies actions and deeds to offer a significant experience in the life of its campers. It constantly improves its facilities, develops new activities’ sites, pilots the best training program in Quebec to some 200 counsellors and support employees hired every summer, reinvents the animation in order to realize the full potential of its campers, offers an unequalled counsellor/camper ratio, and dedicates all its energies to providing high quality cafeteria services.

No other camp has such a well-developed healthcare infrastructure. Camp Papillon nurses and nursing assistants are members in good standing of the OIIQ and the OIIAQ. They provide all required healthcare to the campers 24 hours a day, they are the first caregivers during emergency situations and they closely supervise the work of the health care aides, the nutritionist, and the physiotherapist/occupational therapist.

The grants Camp Papillon receives from the government represent only 13% of its annual budget. Its income rests essentially on the parents contribution and on the generosity of its donors.


Our animation specialists pilot our numerous sites, where many exceptional activities are adapted to the abilities of our campers: fishing, camping, swimming, drama, dancing, painting, astronomy, archery, soccer, pontoon boating, Olympiads, hiking…No time ideed to get bored.
