TESTIMONIALS

“For the second year in a row, my two children have absolutely adored the PENS camp. They enjoy the days spent walking, hiking and discovering the woods of the Mont Sutton and the camp councillors have always been dynamic, well rounded and fun. The sleepover in the refuge is another hit. It’s the only camp they have ever wanted to return too.”
