Our cities and towns all have something unique to offer you. Whether it’s a place, a product, a landscape, an attraction or an event, you’ll always have at least five good reasons for visiting them! Here’s Saint-Camille!

By Carolyne Parent

What an inspiring place to live, where the citizens are mobilized to stop the demographic decline, to make it more attractive and to establish the structure needed to infuse it with a new vitality! It’s not surprising people stop here to enjoy this town…


Stop by Le P’tit Bonheur de Saint-Camille

Félix Leclerc would be proud! Named in honour of the famous folk singer and writer, this cultural outreach centre is a venue allowing Saint-Camille citizens to exchange with visitors through the means of an exhibition and performance hall. It’s established inside the old general store, which also houses a village café where, every weekend from Mothers’ Day to Labour Day, we can enjoy a meal. As a bonus, the centre is located on the Townships Trail.

Attend the Concerts at the Saint-Camille Chapel

Do you enjoy Baroque music? Or perhaps any out-of-the-ordinary musical event? The chapel concerts, offered to the Saint-Camille citizens inside this old church, renowned for its excellent acoustics, will surely meet your expectations! Every year, the last performance of the season, an intimate candlelight encounter with Bach is always particularly appreciated.

Strolling Down the Family Trail

Starting out from the town, the path covers six kilometres leading you across four main zones (the village, farmlands, the forest and the bog) allowing you to enjoy a delightful stroll. Interpretation panels presenting the history of Saint-Camille have also been placed throughout the route.

Visit the Lait Sangliers des Bois Farm

From a dairy farm to a breeding farm, these six generations of farmers have readily taken only a short step away from their roots with some preferring chickens, others pigs, goats or even wild boars! On Fridays and Saturdays, visitors stop by their boutique to purchase their wild boar pâtés, sausages, cretons and plenty of great things to delight their palates.

Explore Mont-Ham Regional Park

Just outside the town, this park invites visitors to hike its trails as much in winter as in the summertime. Another asset to climbing this mountain besides the breathtaking panorama we discover on top? It’s how the Abenaki heritage is valorized and honoured through four different experiences. The People of the Dawn were in fact the first to occupy the Townships. The different nature lodging accommodations found in the area also offer a great reason for coming here!
