Leisure Outings

Transform the time spent in hospital into quality time of entertainment and share

L’ENVOL is mobilized all along the year to bring magic during stays in hospital through:
Discovery workshops, learning time with fun activities;
Expression workshops, to give children the necessary key tools so they can better express themselves by thought process, speaking exercises or through creative supports and thus allow them to better accept the illness;
Well-being workshops, to teach parents of sick children diverse relaxation methods that they can re-use on their own.
