About St. Brigid’s Summer Camp
St. Brigid’s Summer Camp is a registered charity that at its heart has always strived to offer a summer camp experience to underprivileged youth. We believe that every child should have the opportunity to attend camp regardless of their family’s financial situation. St. Brigid’s Summer Camp is open to children aged 8 to 14. Campers attend for five-day sessions, Monday to Friday, boys in July and girls in August. Our camp is located on beautiful Lake Manitou, near Low, Quebec. We are a waterfront based camp with traditional camping activities including swimming, canoeing, hiking, games, arts and crafts and campfire.
The camp spends over $430,000 every year to provide camp holidays to almost 1000 children. We cannot do that without the financial support of those who believe that St Brigid’s Summer Camp is worthwhile. We ask for donations from the community to meet that goal. All donations are greatly appreciated and are eligible for a charitable tax receipt. We currently do not receive any funding from government or funding agencies so we rely on donations and fundraising efforts to keep the camp running. Our main fundraising activity that includes the campers is the annual ticket raffle. Each camper is asked to sell at least one book of raffle tickets.
