This expedition will offer four teenagers in remission of cancer and their family the chance to live an extraordinary adventure and to discover hidden treasures of the province of Quebec along with othe families who went through similar challenges.

An expedition elaborated for and by families!

From Montreal, we’ll travel to Dolbeau-Mistassini where we’ll establish our base camp for one night in order to get ready for departure.
