Week 1: Art and Drama

June 24-28, 2019

It’s time to PRETEND & CREATE with Mme Katia and Mme Géraldine! This program is designed to awaken children’s imagination and creativity through movement, arts and music. Children will learn to work together by exploring familiar characters and stories; as well as, invent their own stories. In addition, they will practice memorizing and teamwork. Children will also create an Art Exhibit and create the Drama Stage for the end-of-the-week play. 

On Friday: you are invited to come watch our little performers and view their Art Exhibit.

Week 2: Chez Les Lilas, Bon Appétit !

July 1-5, 2019 (No Camp on July 4th)

It is said that cooking is a really good stress buster. Fresh organic food is the basic need of a human being and cooking is a part of it. If kids have basic cooking skills, they will become self-sufficient. If the good food movement is to succeed, it will be through our children. Cooking is less expensive and it is also better for the environment. Believe it or not, cooking will boost kids’ social skills.  

During this week we will discover a dish from a different country every day with some special guests. Your child will learn basic cooking skills They will learn about nutrition and where food comes from and make a recipe book so they can continue cooking at home.

Our campers will create our very own Les Lilas Restaurant (cooking, decorations, menu...)

On Friday, parents are invited to have lunch “Chez Nous”. Your child will cook for you, greet you, serve you and be your favorite waiter(ress).

Week 3: Escape Room Extravaganza

July 8-12, 2019


This week is all about solving and creating different types of puzzles and problems using logical reasoning skills. Campers will be challenged to create their own puzzles and challenge their friends.

Our campers will be working collaboratively to engineer an escape room:

Race against the clock to complete challenges and puzzles, manipulate objects, and open locks. The unique games will have them using their spy skills to crack open a case, plotting against pirates to find hidden treasures, or uncovering clues to solve mysteries.

On Friday, parents are invited to try to escape their room.

Week 4: Board Game Creation Station

July 15-19, 2019

This week will challenge the campers’ engineering and inventing skills. They will participate in an invention convention where they will create their own invention!

Les Lilas will be hosting a board game camp. Board games can be an instrumental tool to grow and encourage skills in spatial reasoning, math, critical thinking, group work and cooperation. Throughout this camp, students will have an opportunity to learn games from multiple genres with the help of Les Lilas staff and volunteers, to identify the structures of board game design and to then design a working prototype of their own board games.

The games selected for the camp will give students a comprehensive understanding of the skills and fun to be gained through collaboration and play.

On Friday, campers will enjoy a friendly tournament using their own board game that they created during the week, with some great prizes to win.

Week 5: It’s Life’s Bugs

July 22-26, 2019 


Campers will explore the fascinating world of insects at Les Lilas Bug Camp!
