This camp, organized by Autism Nova Scotia - Halifax, is all-inclusive and features valuable information sessions and fun camp activities for parents, siblings, and campers with autism. Each family will have their own room within one of Brigadoon’s lovely cabins to share together at night and each person with autism will receive individualized support throughout the weeknd.

The Valley Chapter will be offering ONE of its four available spots for FREE via a lottery draw. If you're interested in this spot please email Sandy at with the following info:

Families will also be able to register for the three remaining Valley spots. Each spot will cost $400 which must be paid by families.
