School Groups

The interactive and exciting nature of school programs at Brigadoon Village engages students in intentionally designed learning experiences that give them the opportunity for interpersonal and intrapersonal growth and development. Students will be given opportunities to try new challenges and push themselves outside of their comfort zones while making decisions to help the group achieve a common goal. The school program is designed to highlight group processes and principles and transfer the learning back to the classroom and their everyday lives.

Activities

Students will be given opportunities to participate in a wide variety of activities in small groups. Activities might include archery, fire building, nature interpretation, initiatives, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, arts and crafts, Compass orienteering and more!

Meals

At Brigadoon, we eat 6 times a day. Meals are an important part of the Brigadoon Program and students are given the opportunity to share among their peers and reflect on the day. Every meal is prepared by our amazing kitchen team under the guidance of our Red Seal Executive Chef, Dianne. We customize our menus to meet participants’ dietary requirements and allergies so everyone is able to enjoy similar meals. Our Site is nut and shellfish aware but our team can meet any dietary need out there!
