Base de plein air Bon départ
Located in Wentworth-North in the Laurentians, the Fondation Bon départ camp is open year-round and certified by the Association des camps du Québec. The site covers 539 acres, giving access to 5 lakes, numerous streams, observation points and several kilometres of forested trails.
Our facilities are classified 4-star by the CITQ (Tourism Industry Corporation of Quebec) and are divided into 3 separate reception areas, fully independent and accessible to all. The various accommodation buildings are adapted to different clientele and enable everyone to fully appreciate the natural scenery surrounding the facilities.
Formerly known as Perce-Neige, the camp belonged to the Hôpital Louis-H. Lafontaine and has kept its vocation to offer a camp for people with special needs.
