Day Camp

The day camp part of the Activ’Été program is for children from age 5 to 13. The different divisions of the program are offered in different schools in the municipality and are divided by age group:

  • 5-6 y.o.
  • 7-9 y.o.
  • 10-13 y.o.
  • A team is assigned to each division for the entire summer period. Each team is made up of monitors, integration counsellors and a section leader who supervises and oversees the group. Children from age 7 to 13 must be able to ride a bike in order to take advantage of all the local outings.

    In the first week of camp, each child receives a shirt with the Activ’Été logo that they must wear every day for safety and to demonstrate membership in the group.

    Every year, a Parents’ Guide is produced to announce all the Activ’Été programs, to help prepare for and plan their children’s summer activities and to offer information about the various policies and procedures. The 2021 version of the guide will be available in the spring. For information purposes, here is the 2020 version of the Parents’ Guide.

  • The schools differ from year to year, depending on the availability offered by the school service centres.

  • For children 7 to 13 registered for day camp 

    The city day camp offers young families a special and unique form of transportation for youth: cycling! Based on the principle of one bus trip in the morning and one at night, hundreds of children move through the streets to get to their activity centre and return home, taking a pre-established route guided by a trained monitor. This concept, which was launched over 25 years ago, is unique in Québec and one of the hallmarks of originality of the Châteauguay summer day camp program.

    For obvious safety reasons, the bikes cannot be equipped with training wheels. The child must be at the identified intersection of one of the bike routes to the school where they are registered at 9 in the morning. Please note that the bike routes are no more than 30 minutes long.

    Since bicycle helmets are a very good protection measure, we strongly recommend that you get one for your child.

    Every year, a Bike Guide is produced showing all the routes for that summer. The 2021 version of the guide will be available in the spring. For information purposes, here is the 2020 version of the Bike Guide.


Registration for the summer of 2021 will begin on Saturday, April 24.

There are two ways to register:

  • Complete the online registration form which will be available in April 2021.

    The fees must be paid in full at the time of registration.

    Payment methods accepted: Visa, MasterCard and Accès D.

  • Come to the Centre culturel Georges.-P.-Vanier on registration day.

    Payment methods accepted: Visa, MasterCard, debit card, cash or cheque made out to Ville de Châteauguay.

    Amounts of over $200 can be paid in two equal instalments:

    • 1st instalment: 50% of total cost at the time of registration
    • 2nd instalment: cheque post-dated to June 1, 2021.
    • Registration can be cancelled, with a refund, up to ten days before the first day of camp. An administrative fee of $10 will be charged. Late fees are not refunded.
    • Ville de Châteauguay will refund the full amount, without penalty, if it changes the conditions for an activity before it begins.
    • If the registered person is unable to participate in the whole activity due to illness, the refund will be proportional to the service not used. A medical certificate is required no more than ten days after the beginning of the illness.
    • Ville de Châteauguay will charge a fee of $45 for NSF cheques.
    • If the child does not come to the planned location on time, Ville de Châteauguay will not be held responsible and will not offer a refund.
  • On request, a receipt for tax purposes (Relevé 24) will be issued for all programs except the Excursion program. You will receive this document in February of the following year.

The programming for 2021 will be announced in the spring. Stay tuned for new outings!
