All children should be given an opportunity to enjoy the camp experience. Brigadoon Village will offer 15 summer camps this year, giving extraordinary kids the chance to be ordinary! Each camp is designed to accommodate a health condition or life challenge. Brigadoon gives children living with the same illness or life challenge the freedom to share experiences with other children going through similar challenges.

Each camp is unique and hosted in partnership with organizations such as the Canadian Cancer Society, the Arthritis Society, and many more. Many of the children attending camp are meeting others with the same challenges for the first time. Special friendships form as campers become more confident and build life skills while having tons of fun!

Brigadoon Village, located at beautiful Aylesford Lake in the Annapolis Valley, has been providing fun camp experiences for children for over a decade. This summer they will continue to ensure all children have an opportunity to enjoy an amazing summer experience!

Brigadoon offers a pay-what-you-can fee structure to ensure that no camper will ever be turned away because of their financial situation.

Brigadoon Village Summer Camps (Family Fun Halifax)

Brigadoon Village is a non-profit recreational facility that has been offering camp experiences for children for more than a decade. They are now the largest pediatric medical camp in Canada for children, youth, and families with chronic health conditions and other life challenges.

Brigadoon structures its programming so that its camps meet the medical needs of the campers but also, the campers will be able to meet others who share similar challenges. Sharing this bond can be powerfully therapeutic and they believe that every child, regardless of the life challenges they face, should have the opportunity to experience the transformational effects of camp.
