Latvian Cultural Camp

July 23 - 29, 2017

Register here.

Latvian Cultural Camp is a week-long sleepaway camp for children ages 6 to 14 years who don’t speak Latvian but who are interested in learning about their Latvian heritage. The goal of the camp is for the children to make new friends, enjoy the outdoor/indoor activities program, and learn some Latvian in a non-classroom setting in the Latvian community of Tērvete in the beautiful Laurentian mountains located between Montreal and Ottawa.

Location: 68 Chemin Tervette, Grenville-Sur-La-Rouge, Quebec, Canada, J0V 1B0

**Please take note English and Latvian will be spoken during this session.

 Most of the activities will take place outdoors (weather permitting) and will include: supervised swimming, sports, arts & crafts, music and dance program, and preparation for end-of-camp bonfire skits. Emphasis will be placed on having the children creatively express themselves, all in a safe environment.

 For more information, please send an email to: valde@tervete.ca

Cultural Camp Workbee:

As Tervete is a non-profit organization, we have to get the camp in order and ensure the grounds are safe and ask that parents participate in one of the following workbees that take place rain or shine (lunch is provided for both dates):

  • Saturday, June 3, 2017 – 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
  • Saturday, July 8, 2017 – 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

There is also the third option of helping with clean-up the day after camp ends:

  • Sunday, July 30th, 2017 beginning at 10 a.m.

 If you cannot participate these dates, we ask that you make a payment of $125 that can be paid when you register online or when you send your cheque.
