Association des camps du Québec
Camps certified by the Association des camps du Québec (ACQ) meet over 60 rigorous standards in terms of safety, supervision, programming, the environment, health and food. They offer safe activities and equipment, have the requisite permits and hold valid skills certificates. Staff are qualified, fully trained and ready to intervene at all times. They adhere to a strict counsellor/camper ratio that's tailored to different age groups or to special-needs clienteles. Programming is varied and balanced, based on a planned schedule. All menus are approved by a dietician. The ACQ conducts regular visits of certified camps to ensure compliance with its standards.
