The Volunteers Meetup is a reunion weekend filled with activities and reflections. It’ll take place during the weekend of September 28 to 30, 2018, at the outdoor sports camp Le P’tit Bonheur in the Laurentian Mountains.

We’re happy to be back for a second time this year, but this time, it’ll be with a magnificent autumn decor.
