CampiAgile is one of the largest centres for acrobatics training in Quebec. The club was established in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield 35 years ago, and offers classes in gymnastics and cheerleading. Desjardins donated $150,000 to CampiAgile to help them diversify their activities, so they can open their doors to even more young people.
