SUMMER CLUB FORMULA – JULY 2 TO AUGUST 19 2021
Will there be group animated activities (by age group) during the summer of 2021?
In normal times, Jouvence offers outdoor activities in a vacation setting, where you can leave your children for group activities with our animators. Unlike a summer camp setting with groups present for a specific amount of time, these animated activities, usually offered by age group, cannot be offered as in 2019 and prior. We continue to have animated activities as the center of our offer, however, to protect our clients and staff from any potential outbreak, we now focus on family activities, where both parents and children participate together. There are blocks of activities scheduled in the morning, afternoon and evening. This adapted formula focuses on family bubbles and reduces close contacts between families.
How do the meals work?
Several meal options are offered in the morning, noon and evening. They are presented in buffet-style and served by our staff. This summer, two serving bars will be available for you to enjoy. A ticket system will allow you to take a seat at the table upon your arrival.
Should access to the dining room be restricted due to the visitors’ home address colour code, we will offer “take-out” meals, which you can enjoy in your accommodations.
How does registration for the animated family activities work?
Registration for the animated family activities is done via an online registration module. All the details will be shared with you upon arrival on the site.
