    Crêt-Bérard organises summer camps for children aged 8 to 11. Supervised by a young and dynamic team, the children take part in handcrafts, play, go out in nature and experience times of sharing amongst themselves and with the supervising staff.

    Around a theme and many activities, the camps broach the topics of the value of each person and interpersonal relationships, and encourage curiosity and ingenuity, prayer and inner life, care of nature, etc. These camps take place in the heart of the life of the “Maisonnée”, around the chapel and the cloister.
