Camp Brimacombe Summer Camp gives kids the chance to have outdoor adventures this summer, exploring the great outdoors and learning at the same time! At Camp Brimacombe, campers gain new experiences, develop fundamental skills, foster friendships and grow. Each week, campers take part in age-appropriate activities, all in a supportive and holistic-focused environment.
Children 4 to 12 years of age have lots of outdoor fun at Camp Brimacombe’s day camps. Then, campers aged 12–14 can attend a Leader-In-Training program and campers aged 14–16 graduate to the Counsellor-In-Training program. Throughout their journey, campers gain new experiences and develop fundamental skills and friendships in a supportive environment. Furthermore, all of the programs are designed to promote the participant’s personal development and self-esteem.
Each week, campers delve into exciting and new learning adventures. At the same time, they explore the natural world around them in age-appropriate activities, including:
- Trail Walks
- Water Play
- Forest Play
- Group Games
