Giving extraordinary kids a chance to be ordinary.

Brigadoon Village passionately transforms the lives of Atlantic Canadian children and youth living with health conditions and other life challenges to help them reach their full potential through experiential learning, meaningful connections, and exceptional fun.

Brigadoon offers 14 summer camp programs for children and youth living with conditions and other life challenges. Registration for our summer camp programs opens in January every year. Every camp has a specific registration deadline.

Our donors and volunteers truly are the heart of what we’re doing, and we’re grateful for each and every one of them! Whether you want to be a donor, make an in-kind donation, volunteer with our summer programs, or pick an item from our wishlist, there are many ways to help!
