Champ Libre is committed to providing a rich, diversified, stimulating, and open-minded environment to its young people. This environment encourages and fosters self-confidence, autonomy, responsibility, tolerance and respect for individual and collective differences (most notably for different learning styles and rhythms).
Champ Libre operates in a non-sectarian, healthy, and secure space (physically, psychologically, and socially), with a focus on quality of life, cooperation, self-discovery, sharing, empathy, fellowship, and creating warm human relations.
Free from the pressures of performance, evaluation, and output, Champ Libre concentrates on the essential components for creating a natural and caring learning environment.
Our space offers some wonderful perks, such as:
Adult facilitators at Champ Libre are available at all times to serve as educational, artistic, creative, and emotional resources. They participate actively in the daily life of the centre and are present to answer questions to the best of their abilities.
They support the development of young people’s projects by putting the proper materials at their disposal and by inviting artists, specialists, and tradespeople from the region to act as mentors and to nourish and support children’s interests and passions.
