Frequently Asked Questions

If the pandemic situation deteriorates between now and the beginning of the chosen session, can we cancel and get a refund?

Barring a major pandemic deterioration, summer camps will be held this summer.

If the pandemic situation deteriorates to the point of making it impossible to hold the session, all will be refunded. Should Public Health guidelines in addition to those already stated make it impossible for a child to attend, a refund will be given.

Will the health policies change between now and the start of camp?

It all depends on the epidemiological situation. We hope to have the details of the Public Health guidelines as soon as possible, this spring. We will keep you informed of their impact or not on the programming and on the reception.

Will the children be required to wear the mask?

Although not mandatory, masks are recommended for indoor activities. In the event of an outbreak in a cottage, the mask must be worn for the duration recommended by the care manager. Please bring 30 masks (procedural or fabric) in your luggage.

Do you manage prescription drug use?

Yes, the camp counsellors do this as needed, or even the first aid manager, as the case may require.

My child takes medication. What follow-up is done during his stay at Camp?


In order to ensure a safe and pleasant stay for your child, the staff of the Camp Musical Père Lindsay requires your cooperation in following each of the following steps.

1-You must check the boxes in the PARENT’S AUTHORIZATIONS section under the Distribution/Administration of Medication section and sign the form before sending it. No distribution or administration of medication will be done without this signed authorization.

2-Depending on your child’s age, maturity, and abilities, only you can assess whether medication needs to be distributed or administered:

Distribution: the child is ABLE to take their own medication after the instructor has given it to them.

Administration: the child CANNOT take medication on their own. This medication must be administered by a designated person.

3- In the event of any change in the prescription after having completed and sent the form, you will have to complete the health form again and send it by email to

4- You and your child will be met upon arrival at the Camp by an authorized professional who will analyze this form and question you if necessary. Medications must be handed in at this time in their original containers and accompanied by the label produced by the pharmacist, in the child’s name. All medication must be ready to be administered (e.g.: pillbox, pre-filled syringe, single dose, etc.)

5- You must ensure that the prescription of the medication is renewed when necessary and that the medication is taken back when the stay is completed.

6- Finally, it is important to make your child aware of their responsibilities regarding their medication and to inform them that they must not exchange or give their medication to other campers and to make them aware of the dangerous consequences that this could cause.

We invite you to contact us if you have any questions about this procedure.

My child is registered and wants to go to camp with a friend who is not registered. If the chosen session is full, can I get a refund?

We prefer to try to find a compromise solution: we could put the two young people in the same session available.

Do you think you can offer teachers for all instruments?

This will depend on the number of registrations for each of these instruments. In the event that there are very few of a particular instrument, we will make sure to hire an experienced generalist teacher who can supervise these campers and offer sound advice.

Will there be concerts during the week?

Yes, the first Wednesday’s concert will be presented by a guest artist(s) and the following Wednesday’s concert will be offered by the camp’s teachers. Due to space limitations and to reduce the risk of propagation, only the teachers’ concert, scheduled for the Wednesday evening of the second week, will be open to parents and guests who wish to attend. Admission: $10/person (free for the camper). Parents will be invited to wear masks at this event. To see the program, click here.

Campers will sing (some will be selected to play) at the end of session concert at Saint-Alphonse-Rodriguez church and some campers will be selected to play at the mid-session Sunday.

A special concert for campers will be presented during the stay.


What is the expected music level to participate in the camp?

We welcome students of all levels.

Although it is best to have a basic knowledge of your instrument, we occasionally welcome motivated beginners.

Lessons are private and students are not in competition with each other.

Do I have to bring my instrument?

Yes, campers must bring their own instruments but pianists are provided with an instrument, of course. 

In case of need, please let us know, we might be able to help.

What happens to the music tracks usually offered at the end of the stay?

The traditional marathon recording of the music tracks is scheduled this year, unless otherwise directed by Public Health. Recordings of the piece played by the camper, along with choral and orchestral pieces will be available for download at the end of the session.

Will there be an orchestra? A choir?

Yes, there will be orchestra this year, but only for the more advanced students and during the second week. This will allow the students to better prepare their solo piece with their teacher during the first week. It is also possible to organize chamber music for students who will not have orchestra rehearsals. There will also be choir rehearsals every morning at the auditorium.

Will the children be able to play games?

Of course they will! We are adapting some of the larger games to exclude contact. They will also be able to swim.

Will the morning pancakes still be on the menu!?

This is a long tradition at the camp, of course pancakes will be served for breakfast!
