Camp Brimacombe Summer Camp helps kids explore nature while promoting learning through play. Their mission is to give every camper an educational, exciting and memorable experience that also fosters their holistic development. Above all, they provide an empowering and safe environment that recognizes the uniqueness of each child.

Camp Brimacombe offers day camp programs for children 4 to 12 years of age, as well as a Leader-In-Training program designed for campers aged 12–14 and a Counsellor-In-Training program for campers aged 14–16. Throughout the levels, the programs promote the participants’ personal development and self-esteem. Meanwhile, campers gain new experiences and develop fundamental skills and friendships in a supportive environment.
