Quebec Trip

18 French students travelled with Mrs. Chambers and Mrs. Calvo to the Winter Québec Carnaval. It was a great trip! Our activities included, among others, a city walk, a visit to Montmorency Falls and the Ice Hotel, dog sledding, a visit to a sugar shack with a Québecois meal, traditional music, and a presentation on the production of maple syrup. Everybody had a lot of fun too at the Village de Sports that had many snow slides.

Ice Hotel (They build this unique hotel every year! The nightly rate is between $500 and $800!)
