This project gives volunteers a chance to work with their hands by showing them how to do general maintenance work on the grounds and buildings of Camp Le Manoir. Since it is a summer camp as well as a day camp, it tends to be quite busy during summertime. So, it is more than essential to do some maintenance work to ensure the safety of visitors at the end of the season.

Chantiers jeunesse supports volunteers at every stage of the process, from the selection to the training of volunteers and by closely monitoring the social and professional development of the volunteer throughout its volunteer project. Contact us if you have any questions!
