Activities; Week of May 22, 2017

What a great long weekend in Quebec City with 49 cadets and 4 staff learning, exploring, discovering, eating and playing.  Whether it was the Montreal stop to have lunch in front of flaming onion towers, escaping a room using clues to find keys, exploring Old Quebec, running across a bridge high above raging falls, learning to load a musket, enjoying locally made chocolate, rolling down the hills at the Plains of Abraham or cooling off in the pool, it’s hoped that everyone learned something and had fun.
