On this adventure day, we will explore 4 treetops courses (with an increasing degree of difficulty) and ziplines among the largest in Québec! (more than a kilometre downhill altogether).

A Day in Mount Orford

Outdoor weekend at the Vallée du Bras-du-Nord (Québec region) & Visit of Trois-Rivières (Mauricie region)

Activity #5
Dates: July 2nd and 3rd

Cost: $130

Canoeing/kayaking

On Saturday, we will go to the Vallée du bras du nord, a reserve with beautiful landscapes about 40 minutes away from Québec city.
We will do a 4 hours really smooth river descent, stopping many times, to have lunch and visit the Delaney’s waterfall.
Do not worry! The depth of the river is about 50 centimetres almost all the way. This trip is 100% adapted for beginners!
About a hundred people descending the river together, that’s definitely something!

Camping

After the descent, we will go to a camping site and have a much deserved BBQ dinner (included) near a bonfire, and sing and jam under the starlight.

The ÉÉF team is bringing the tents so all you need to sleep is your sleeping bag!

Visit of Trois-Rivières

After a long day on Saturday, on Sunday morning we will have breakfast (included), hop back in the buses and head to the Mauricie region, more specifically to Trois-Rivières, a dynamic city by the port with a very active downtown that you will be able to explore at your rythm with the monitors.

Day and night in Québec City & Waterpark / Rafting Day

Activities #6A (only waterpark) and #6B (waterpark and rafting)
Dates: July 9th and 10th

Cost: $115 for #6A and $175 for #6B

Québec City

On Saturday, we will go directly to Québec city to explore the many things this beautiful historic town has to offer. Since we are spending the night in the city, you will also get to see some of the nightlife, that includes shows, street performers and more!

Waterpark / White water rafting

On Sunday, we will all go to Valcartier. Depending on your choice, you will go to Valcartier’s Waterpark or go rafting (supervised cliff jumping and whitewater swimming assured for the rafting activity!). Students who chose the rafting activity may join the other students in the waterpark afterwards!

The monitors will be with you all along, and there will be specialised instructors on the rafting activity.
