We are the Brigadoon Children’s Camp Society. Our team of dedicated staff and volunteers are committed to bettering the lives of children, youth and families living with a chronic illness, condition or special need in Atlantic Canada.
Brigadoon is open year round! Our summer programs are typically one week in length. In the Fall and Winter camping season we offer a variety of weekend programs. Check out our schedule here.
The transformational effect of a camping experience is life altering. For children and youth with a chronic illness or condition, opportunities for self-discovery can be limited by definitions of disease, treatments, conditions, and stereotypes. Brigadoon is a place where campers come to experience new things, meet friends who are facing similar challenges, and to just be themselves…not a patient, a chart full of symptoms, or a good little soldier.
With our partners, we develop specialized camping programs that meet the varied needs of our campers. Our guiding principles lead program development: to live sustainably, to be innovative, to be environmentally mindful, to be creative, to be compassionate, to be accountable, to be accessible, to create and build partnerships, to be community –orientated, and of course, to have exceptional fun. The generous support of our donors makes camp possible!
