  • Winter Virtual Programming

    Our Virtual Game Nights are an exciting opportunity for campers, new and returning, to engage with one another over the winter months while we can’t be together in person. Building off of the momentum from our Brigadoon Virtual Village programming this past summer, these events will promote and maintain connections between campers while being exceptionally fun.

  • Brigadoon announces Virtual Village 2020

    With the difficult decision behind us to not run our traditional in-person summer camp programs, we are very excited to announce the details for our new online virtual camp program. While we know that it won’t be the same, we have been hard at work developing plans for how we can bring some of the magic of what we do at Brigadoon to our campers in their homes.

  • No Wine & Dash in 2020

    After postponing Wine & Dash in the spring we were hopeful to be able to hold an in person event this fall. After careful consideration with our presenting sponsor, Scotiabank as well as the other sponsors, we have made the decision to not move forward with Wine & Dash for 2020. Thank you for your support and commitment to Brigadoon Village.  We will drink and celebrate with friends again!
