Off-Season Teen Camps

March Break Leadership Camp and Teen Winter Retreat are two great ways for our teen campers to connect over the off-season.  These events are open to campers between the ages of 13 and 18.  After several summers at camp, most of the teen campers get to know their peers from “their camp”.  Our teen off-season events are open to campers from all of our various summer camps. This intermingling of campers from different camps provides older campers with a different perspective on themselves and on others.  Below are some examples of how campers can benefit from our off-season events:

  • Creating connections with other campers and making new friends.
  • Staying at camp with an older group of peers and more time to socialize amongst themselves.
  • Learning about other camps and different chronic illnesses and conditions that our campers are living with.
  • Challenging themselves by trying new activities that are designed for campers to recognize their leadership potential.
  • Learning to take ownership and diligence of administering their own medications.
  • Participating in all the usual camp programs like Visual Arts, Outdoor Rec, Campfires etc.

In order to have a beneficial camp experience, and expand on their independence and leadership skills at these off-season programs, teens should, for the most part, be able to manage their own medical care, with support and reminders from our on-site medical team. Should you have any questions or concerns about this for your camper, please get in touch!

Costs for these programs will now follow the same pay-what-you-can structure as our summer programs do. Suggested payment amounts are available on CampBrain during the registration process, but as always, no one will be turned away from our programs for financial reasons.

Winter Teen Retreat

A weekend retreat that is open to campers from all of our camp sessions aged 13-18.

This weekend is a social retreat and not necessarily focused on developing leadership skills.

Campers who attend this program should be able to manage the majority of their medical care (including administration of medications), with reminders and support from our Medical Team. If you have any questions about this, please get in touch with us.

To be eligible for this Retreat, campers must have previously attended a summer camp session at Brigadoon Village.

March Break Leadership Camp

Our March Break Leadership Camp is open to our older campers (13-18) who are interested in developing their leadership skills. Priority will be given to our older campers, and all applicants should be prepared to and interested in participating in skill development sessions.

This 4-day retreat will focus on helping our campers to develop leadership skills which will help them to have a positive impact in their communities, at school, and in extra-curricular activities. We will focus on skills like communication, having a positive impact, teamwork and collaboration, etc.

Campers will be able to return to this program multiple times and focus on differing skills each time. Though this is undoubtedly a fun social retreat, campers should only apply if they are serious about developing their leadership skills!
