Centre Notre-Dame de la Rouge in Grenville, Québec, will be able to welcome young people to camp this summer in a newly renovated facility. The Centre officially opened its new pavilion in a ceremony May 7, 2016, which was the culmination of a four-year renovation of the entire facility. The pavilion is named after Brother André Gauthier, FSC, a former director who was well known among those who attended the Centre.

The mission of Centre Notre-Dame de la Rouge is to create experiences that help young people flourish in all dimensions of their life. Each year, the Centre serves nearly 4,000 young people from different schools, parishes and communities in Ontario and Québec.

The renovations will allow the Centre to meet the needs of children, adolescents and young adults thanks to the investment of more than $3 million made by the Brothers of the Francophone Canada District. The Centre now features more playgrounds, new dormitories, a new pavilion and upgraded, environmentally friendly facilities.

To celebrate the renovation, Centre Notre-Dame de la Rouge is hosting an open house May 22.
