Since its launch in Verdun in 1986, Toujours ensemble has offered summer day camps and activities in parks to young people aged 9 to 17. After surveying parents and taking some time to rethink the program, new summer activities were launched in 2019 to meet the needs of the community. To help as many young people as possible take part in our summer programming, we reviewed our format, lowered our rates, and now have unlimited spots.
The summer program is very similar to the Parcours Program. Our youths only have to register once to participate in any activity without having to sign up later, as they can simply come to the meeting point at the scheduled time. The activity leaders and staff members wait for them to do the activities and talk with them.
Toujours ensemble now offers to young people from Verdun a rich and diversified eight-week summer program (youth and teens) with one outing per week!
Summer program 2023 will run from June 27 to August 18.

This program lets young people
Have positive experiences
Be physically active
Make friends and develop their social networks
Develop their independence and sens of responsibility
Improve their social skills
The camp helped my two boys develop their independence. This was the first time they managed on their own in the neighbourhood, and I think it was good for them. The variety of activities offered was also a plus. We also really liked the flexibility of the new format.
The activities were so cool. I had the best summer vacation ever.
… it enhances your self-confidence, sense of initiative, and responsibility.
TE staff are very kind and understanding about our ideas and opinions.
