A Volunteer's Experience

Thalia Garvock-de Montbrun Volunteer Counsellor

I’ve been volunteering at Brigadoon every summer for three years now and I can honestly say there is no place like it. Before coming to Brigadoon, I had not experienced such a welcoming and inclusive environment. It is remarkable to see how much the campers grow and become more themselves throughout the week and I feel lucky to have been a part of so many campers’ experiences.

At first, I thought going to Brigadoon would help the kids, but really they ended up helping me: to make friends, to live life, and to have fun. They taught me about resilience, courage, and determination, and I cannot think of a better place to volunteer for my summers.

I would encourage everyone to volunteer here. Brigadoon is an amazing place and knowing you helped make a child’s time at camp unforgettable is a priceless feeling.
