Do you know Minicammac, son of Barbacammac, the scary pirate? Or Cammacoucou, the extra-terrestrial? Have you ever seen Patrica Abbott, our artistic director, make a remarkable entrance in the Lucy Concert Hall, in a canoe, while wearing a life jacket, dressed as Elisabeth II, the Queen of England? Did you know that Vincent Lauzer, our spokesperson, sometimes wears his Supercammac costume to protect the Cammacian from the evil Villain? If you answer “no” to these questions, it is because you have unfortunately not attended all of the kids’ concerts during weeks 6 and 7.

If you have danced and sung in a cottage on stilts with a magnificent view on the most fabulous lake. If you have made the most fantastic crafts in an attic. If you toasted marshmallows on a camp fire. If you have played soccer in a field or capture-the-flag game in the forest. If you have played the recorder, the xylophone, the piano or another instrument. If you have learned to build sand castles and swam with Lake MacDonald’s monster. If you have learned to speak French because of bilingual classes and of your new friends. If you have done all of this during the same week, it is because you have definitely participated in the kids program of the summer season.
