The Antigonish Highland Society’s mission is to create a community organization that serves the past, present and future generation of gaels. Our youth programs offer the youth of the community of Antigonish to celebrate and explore the vibrant Scottish culture. 

Clann a’ Bhaile Mhóir Summer Youth Program



This past summer, the Antigonish Highland Society held our first annual youth summer program, Clann Am Baile Mór. The program took place over a few weeks in July & August for ages ranging from 5-12 years of age. The program consisted of activities such as Gaelic language, Gaelic song, milling frolics, step dancing, heavy events, bagpiping, highland dancing and more. 

We are so excited to announce that Clann A’ Bhaile Mhóir is back again this summer!
