Brother Louis-Paul Lavallée, FSC, Visitor of the District of Francophone Canada, announced the closing of Camp De La Salle in a letter posted online September 24th. The center experienced a financial strain because of a decline in weeklong campers over the past 15 years and an underuse of its 37 buildings from mid-August to mid-June. In closing his letter, Brother Louis-Paul thanked the Brothers and lay Partners who worked enthusiastically with youth at Camp De La Salle.
Camp De La Salle is located in the Laurentides Mountains in Saint-Alphonse-Rodriguez (Québec), which is about one hour from Montréal. The Brothers founded the center in 1952.
