Located southeast of Montreal, Wilvaken offers a traditional recreational program in a bilingual setting. French as a Second Language and English as a Second Language instruction aids those interested in improving their French or English. Boys and girls have the autonomy to choose their own activities, as the daily schedule is not overly structured. Campers may embark on three- to four-day canoeing or hiking trips. An English-style riding program is available for an additional fee.
