March Break Camp

Offer your child a different experience over March Break : one full of free play, imagination, exploration and curiosity, that fosters independent decision-making and practical problem-solving skills your child will use for the rest of their life. Based on our popular summer Adventure Camp, The Lion and The Mouse is pleased to present a Forest School and free play inspired March Break Camp for children 5 – 10 years old.

While each day will differ depending upon the children’s interests and the weather, activities may include building snow forts, hunting for signs of spring, a trip to Mont-Royal, playing in our snow or mud kitchen, reading and games at the Marc–Favreau library, music at the Marché des Possibles, and of course plenty of time spent exploring and playing in the Champ des Possibles. In order to maintain this degree of flexibility, our camp maintains a low child to educator ratio (8:1).

Our March Break Camp will be meeting outside whenever possible, with the possibility to move inside whenever we need a warm space to play. In the event of extreme weather (hail, thunderstorms, and extreme cold in the winter), the program will meet indoors. The indoor location for each program is indicated in italics below.
