(Sherbrooke) Located on the shores of Lake Stoke, the St. Pat’s camp will be transformed into a recreational colony adapted for disabled and disadvantaged children of all ages. The camp will also become a place of training for the Paralympic athletes.
This revitalization project, resulting from an alliance between the St. Pat’s Old Boys Association and the Society for disabled children in Quebec (SEHQ), includes the construction of a large inn where all children are gathered.
“We will be able to accommodate 70 children per stay of 10 days, so stay 4 by summer. In winter, we will have 20 weekends. We should have, in everything and everywhere, and 280 children were about 500 older children in the other seasons, “said Jean R. Fabi, Founder, President and CEO of FlexGroup.
Representing an investment of $ 5 million, the camp of the new release should be completed in September 2017.
The Society for Disabled Children Quebec also benefited from the announcement of this project to reveal the identity of its new spokesperson, Paralympian Chantal Petitclerc and senator.
“It is a great pride for the family of the Company to have the support of a woman who personifies determination and passion, two qualities that will surely inspire children with disabilities and encourage them to build on their skills, rather than their disabilities, in the pursuit of their ambitions, “said Jean Duchesneau, President of the Company.
