About the organization


A group of citizens dedicated to our cause created Camp Garagona in 1969 in Frelighsburg, in the Eastern Townships. Primarily a residential camp during the summer months and a respite centre providing support to their caregivers the rest of the year, Garagona welcomes people  living with intellectual deficiencies and/or autism spectrum disorders. Our client pool comes from across Quebec and special attention is given to people from the Brome-Missisquoi area.
