MUNICIPALITY/ORGANIZATION

Collaborating with Farm to School / École-O-Champ

 

École-O-Champ Québec & you

In your municipality what do your youth do in the summer? Why not start engaging your local young people to be responsible citizens while having fun.

EOC can collaborate with you to develop a tailor-made camp, a new theme for an existing camp or offer services focused on your community needs.

Benefits to your organization/municipality:

  • Create a dynamic and fun camp atmosphere
  • Improving healthy lifestyles in your community by promoting food education
  • Promoting your local agriculture and/or farmers markets
  • Keep things simple: An EOC theme can be integrated into your existing summer camps, without increasing your workload.
  • You don’t have a summer camp? EOC can help you create your own.

Impact on young citizens:

  • Enhancing agri-food and environmental knowledge
  • Valuing healthy lifestyle habits
  • Developing maturity
  • Open-mindedness
  • Mindful citizenry
  • Critical thinking
