Since 2003, Colonie Les Bosquets Albert Hudon has joined the great family of the Quebec Society for Disabled Children. Located in Otterburn Park, on the shores of the Richelieu River, the Colonie has organized its activities mainly in favour of people who have a pervasive development disorder (autism or other P.D.D.) as well as people living with an intellectual disability. Emergo Respite Services and P.D.D. offer on the site of Colonie Les Bosquets Albert Hudon services that cater to the specific needs of autistic individuals from all over Quebec. A respite program has also been implemented in support of families who have a disabled child.
Less than forty minutes from downtown Montreal, the Colonie Les Bosquets Albert Hudon occupies a surface of more than 5 million square feet in Otterburn Park. The site has lots of green spaces and heavily wooded areas criss-crossed by acres of trails. Winter and summer, the Colonie can host in its facilities some 120 campers and counsellors at a time. It offers, year in and year out, more than 12,000 night-stays to 1,000 people for vacation stays.
Sponsored by the International Order of Alhambra, the site also includes a cafeteria, a respite residence, recreational areas, as well as a swimming pool. Since 1928, the Order of Alhambra raises and distributes funds to the benefit of the intellectually disabled. The development and the continuity of Colonie Les Bosquets rest on the generosity and the loyalty of the members of the Order and of the Alhambra Foundation as well as on their sincere conviction that a better world necessarily includes the improvement of the quality of life of our society’s most vulnerable people, particularly those living with an intellectual disability.
You also have the opportunity to rent Colonie Les Bosquets Albert Hudon’s facilities for busines meetings, family vacations or nature classes.
