Since 1989 Camp Treasure Chest has supported children across Nova Scotia with Asthma and other lung diseases. Campers have the opportunity to meet other children with asthma/lung disease and participate in fun, educational and physically active adventures, while being supervised by caring counselors and medical professionals. Camp Treasure Chest provides a safe and educational space for campers to learn while also giving campers the opportunity to participate in crafts, games and every day camp experiences.
This year your Lung Association is excited to be partnering again with Brigadoon Village, a non-profit organization that manages a year-round facility used for residential camps for children and youth living with a chronic illness.
This summer, with the increased vulnerability of these children to COVID-19 and current regulations, Camp Treasure Chest is going to be virtual. Working with Brigadoon Village we have been able to create a virtual Camp Treasure Chest! Campers will be able to join in on fun programs and cabin time each morning and afternoon. Camp traditions are also sure to stay alive and well during the week, even if they’re a little different. Screen time with Brigadoon will be balanced with time to get outside, move around and play each day.
We are excited to have campers back at Camper Treasure Chest for another year, even if it’s from home!
Thank you to Brigadoon Village for being so dedicated to helping make this camp a reality for the kids it is so important to.
