Summer day camp

New! Day Camp at Centre Vorlage!

Center Vorlage, the best mountain where you can learn to mountain bike in the Ottawa-Gatineau region in Wakefield, is super excited to introduce you to our too-cool day camps for summer 2024!

Imagine days full of fun and learning, with a funky bilingual twist. We’ve whipped up a crazy program: one half-day in French, the other in English, so everyone can ride and speak in both languages like pros.

On the week’s menu: learn mountain bike tricks, explore the forest, swim at Lac Philippe, conquer the Lusk caves, paddle board down the river, create crazy artworks, enjoy the VIP chalet, take advantage of the specially adapted chairlift to discover the mountain’s trails, become the king of bike mechanics 101, and much more! Monday to Friday, 9am to 4pm.

We’ve planned everything to make life easier for parents: daycare for fearless little ones, a quiet corner so parents can work remotely, and even a catering service to satisfy hungry appetites.
Our crazy PMBI-trained instructors, armed with first-aid superpowers, will watch over your little riders. We want every day to be a perfect mix of adventure, safety and hair-raising memories.

Join us at Centre Vorlage this summer for memorable adventures, laughter and moments that will last a lifetime. We look forward to a summer of fun and mountain biking!
