Camp Treasure Chest
Camp Treasure Chest is an overnight summer camp for children and youth aged 7-18 living with asthma, anaphylactic allergies, and other lung or respiratory conditions. Dietary restrictions are accommodated carefully in our kitchen and all of our campers are given a fanny pack at the beginning of the camp session in which to keep their epi-pens and inhalers.
Campers will take part in a wide range of camp activities, make meaningful connections with others, and build valuable skills that will help them to be successful outside of the camp environment, as well. During Camp Treasure Chest, we help campers to learn self-advocacy skills and to notice what they might need (a break during high activity periods, their inhaler, etc.). All of this takes place during a week full of exceptional fun!
The Lung Association of Nova Scotia partners with Brigadoon Village to make Camp Treasure Chest possible.
