This expedition will offer four adolescents from the Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean region in remission of cancer and their family the chance to take part in an outstanding experience including some virtual sharing circles and activities to be done outdoors autonomously.

Then, the families will be invited to dive into the charming environment of the Centre de plein air Bec-Scie. Snowshoes on, they’ll wander in the paths and participate in activities aiming to enjoy the benefits associated with immersions in nature.

To conclude with the winter activity trio, participants will have the chance to discover the majestic territoy of the Monts Valins National Park and its famous valley of the ghosts.

A final virtual meeting will close the program. It will be the opportunity for families to reflect on the highlights of the past week.

Expedition Members

Because of the socio-sanitary context, the outdoor activities programmed in the Bubbly Adventure project will be done autonomously by family. However, virtual meetings will be animated by a facilitator from the foundation, assisted by volunteers.
