‘’Keep up the GREAT work Sonart! If there should be a role model for summer camps, it should be you. 🙂’’
‘’The staff at Saint Alexandre College is amazing! They are all rock stars!! Both my boys enjoyed their first week. They have been to other camps before but this is the camp they look forward to going to every morning. My boys describe it as “Sonart is not cool, it’s VERY cool.” This camp has a right balance of outdoor activities, music, and social activities. They are very structured (while also having fun). I appreciate how they accommodate each parent’s request when it comes to their children’s safety (allergy, sun exposure, etc.). I especially love the performances at the end of the week. It shows how much this camp is organized. I wish I had known this camp a lot sooner. It’s our favourite summer camp by far. We look forward to the rest of the remaining weeks. Thank you so much to the staff of Saint-Alexandre. Keep up the great work!”
