Sponsor A Child
Brigadoon’s It Takes A Village program allows a donor to sponsor a child or multiple children for their camp stays at Brigadoon.
A lot of hard work goes on behind the scenes to ensure our medically-supported camps are safe & fun for all campers. We’re proud to be able to offer a state-of-the-art camp experience to children and youth living with health conditions and other life challenges.
One week of summer camp at Brigadoon includes costs to cover medical staff, programmers & counsellors, medical equipment, nutritious meals, accommodation for both campers and staff, as well as programming material for all of the fun activities our campers take part in.
It costs approximately $1,750 a week for a child to attend a week-long camp program. 85% of our campers require financial support to attend our programs. The average parent contribution made to Brigadoon is $300.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors and partners, we’re proud to offer a unique fee structure called, Pay What You Can. When a camper is registered to attend one of our programs, the family chooses what to pay for their stay.
The funds raised through corporate, individual, foundation and community support help ensure we never turn a child away for financial reasons. No camper in Atlantic Canada will ever be turned away due to their financial situation.
With your gift, a child will be free to be their true self. A child will feel like everyone else for the first time. An extraordinary child will have a chance to be ordinary.
You allow children, for the first time in their lives, to feel excited with anticipation to try new things. What they once only knew as a medical schedule, always feeling different and explaining their condition, will turn into a schedule of fun, meeting lifelong friends, and learning how to string a bow in the archery program at Brigadoon Village.
Your gift will create a magical feeling for our campers when they discover they have nothing to lose at Brigadoon and everything to gain. You will create the opportunity for our campers to sing silly songs around the campfire amongst others who are just like them. You will turn a tapping foot and a quiet hum into dancing and singing at mealtime in our dining hall. You will empower children to know that their condition does not define them. Rather, they can change the world through newly acquired leadership skills, self-confidence and independence.
