Acting Supervisors: Farm Coordinator and Camp Director, Camp Amy Molson
Camp Amy Molson (C.A.M.) is a non-profit sleepover camp for inner-city Montreal children, aged 5 to 13 years old, located in the beautiful foothills of the Laurentians in Grenville-sur-la-Rouge, Quebec, an hour west of Montreal. Our camp is one of the most affordable in the province due to our sliding scale. Our mission is to provide children with a happy, outdoor experience where campers can build self-esteem, form positive relationships and develop healthy habits.
CAM’s Farm Program (Young Roots Farm) helps youth develop healthy relationships with nature while producing food (vegetables, eggs, mushrooms) on our small acreage mixed ecosystem farm. We use food production, youth entrepreneurship and ecological construction as the basis for engaging with a wide range of youth. We seek to integrate the unique elements of our site (forests, creeks, summer camp facilities, energy and waste of 200+ people, poultry, garden etc.) in a thoughtful and permaculture-inspired way to explore and inspire alternatives to the wasteful and exploitative economic practices that surround us.
