Day Camp in Gatineau for 5 to 12 year olds
with free bus service for campers in the Gatineau sector

July 5 to 16 and July 19 to 30

Maryse Courchesne

Founder of the Camp Musical Adagio

Maryse is well-known for her contagious positive energy and her great passion for kids and music.

In 2001, she was looking for a day camp for her 5-year-old son. He was already playing a bit of violin, but he was also interested in trying different instruments. But at the time, no camp seemed like a good fit to initiate kids to the early stages of music – so she decided to start her own. 19 years later, the AMC still flourishes in bringing music to the new generations.

Being a mother herself, she knew exactly what parents were looking for in a camp for their kids: security, respect, learning, and fun! The recipe is simple: a dynamic and charming team of leaders mixed with a load of diversified and stimulating activities. AMC’s key to success is without a doubt the countless hours spent building the AMC family with passionate and devoted teachers.

During the camp’s first year in 2002, we welcomed 80 campers at our original location: La Cabane en Bois Rond. But during last year’s edition, more than 350 campers experienced the AMC’s magical 2-week summer break.

Since the camp’s 10th-year edition, we started to acknowledge the campers that have been with us for a minimum of 5 years. We proudly call them our 5-star campers. Last summer, we could count more than 60 of them! Thanks again for your trust. We love seeing you year after year.

‘’It’s sincerely the best Gatineau summer camp I’ve ever seen. The organisation, the teachers and instructors – everything was absolutely stellar. It’s not just a money grab. Thanks again for introducing this magic to my son’’.

‘’My daughter loved the camp; it remains her favourite camp year after year. Your team is extraordinary! The days are full and kids simply have no time for boredom’’. 

‘’Again, this was a memorable experience for Sarah. She had fun – while learning! She had no negative comments. Thanks for your engagement, you give a real gift to our kids and allow them to grow musically. 

‘’I’m convinced this summer camp in will be a part of their best memories of their youth. Moreover, you can tell it’s a camp that’s tightly ran, both in terms of the animation and the serious surrounding for security’’.
