Why CDS Day Camp?

Centre du Sablon offers a thematic summer camp for children from 5 to 12 years old. A unique summer experience with sports, artistic, scientific, fashion, culinary and special themes of nature! Every day, we strive to inspire and enable young people of all backgrounds and abilities to discover their hidden talents. Welcome to the CDS family!


The mission of the CDS Summer Camp is to work in parallel with your children's educators from school and other services to offer a seamless transition into the summer, which will allow your child to progress throughout the summer.


After an in-person evaluation with the parents and the child, depending on the child's needs, she/he will be placed in a low ration group or placed in a mainstream camp group with an integration aid.

Our dedicated staff remains in constant contact with parents in person, via email, or via communication folder depending on the child's needs.  This will include individualized intervention plans, behaviour tracking, and progress reports.


Our weekly program consists of swimming, sports, science, art and theme of the week. All of these specialities are adapted to include sensory stimulation activities that work on gross/fine motor skills.

We have a wonderful reserved backyard for our campers to explore in addition to access the Sablon Park, which includes a soccer field, basketball court, playground, tennis court and Trekfit trails. Pizza, juice and chips on Friday are included in the price!

We also have special guests coming to the camp such as Reptizoo, magicians, bouncy houses, water activities in Sablon Vert, etc.


Places are limited! If your child has not been to CDS Camp, please contact the Camp Coordinator, Marianne (cdj@centredusablon.com), to schedule an appointment for an evaluation.
