Nova Scotia Camp

Important Update for Summer 2024: As we gear up for the 2024 camp season, we regret to inform you that due to unforeseen circumstances, our Nova Scotia campsite will no longer be available. In light of this situation, we have made arrangements to accommodate Atlantic campers at our Ontario campsite. We believe this alternative location will offer a similar and equally enriching experience for your child. The Ontario camp will take place from August 18 to 23 at Camp Couchiching, located in Simcoe County near Orillia on Lake Couchiching. Transportation to and from the Ontario location will be fully covered by Crohn’s and Colitis Canada.

If you still wish to attend camp in Nova Scotia, please contact Brigadoon Village directly. Eligibility for residence should be confirmed on their website. 

Crohn’s and Colitis Canada is excited to work with Brigadoon Village to host an overnight camp from August 11 to 16 in Nova Scotia. Children and teens (ages 9 to 17) living in Ontario or Quebec are eligible to attend camp in Nova Scotia. The deadline to apply is June 6, 2024.

For residents of Atlantic Canada, families are encouraged to contact Brigadoon Village directly.


Nestled in the heart of the Annapolis Valley on the shores of beautiful Aylesford Lake, Nova Scotia, Brigadoon Village, the host site for Eastern Canada, is one of only a handful of recreational facilities in Canada dedicated to the pediatric and youth chronic illness community.

Spots at Brigadoon Village are limited! If an applicant is not selected to attend Brigadoon Village, Crohn's and Colitis Canada may reach out the applicant's parent/guardian to offer a spot at our Ontario Camp Got2Go if there is a vacancy.

PLEASE NOTE: As we prepare for the 2024 camp season, we continue to observe the COVID-19 pandemic and the developments of provincial health guidelines. We are working closely with the Crohn's and Colitis COVID-19 and IBD Task Force and our partner sites, to ensure the health and safety of our campers. As a result, your child's camp acceptance or camp program may be subject to changes or cancellation.
