Registration will be done in two phases
- Early registration: For children who were registered in one of the Espace pour la vie camps in 2022, parents of these children will receive all relevant early registration information by e-mail in February 2023. Please note that this message will be sent to the e-mail address associated with your Amilia account. If you haven’t received this e-mail around mid-February, please check your trash and junk folders first before contacting us. In the interest of fairness, preregistrations will be limited to one stay per child.
- Registration: For the general public, starting March 11, 2023 at 9 a.m.
Our online registration platform only accepts payment by credit card (Visa and MasterCard). At the time of registration, you have to pay either the entire registration fee, or a first payment equal to 50% of the full amount. In the latter case, the second instalment will be charged automatically to your account on Friday, June 10, 2022. For other means of payment, please notify us in advance.
