All About Quality Time!

A weekend at Camp Fircom gives dads an opportunity to connect with their children and enjoy a variety of fun programs on offer. Dad & Kids Camp is a blend of structure and choice, giving you a chance to play, relax, discover learn and share with other dads.

After arriving and settling into your accommodation Friday evening, you'll have time to get to know your fellow families before opening the weekend with a delicious dinner. Afterwards enjoy games, campfire and snacks. Late night programs offer dads & kids options to unwind as they choose.

Saturday morning you can participate in morning reflection and/or take a dip in the ocean before enjoying a fantastic breakfast. The morning and afternoon program sessions will feature a variety of options suitable for a wide age-range. Younger children will need to be accompanied by their parents to their age-appropriate program options; however, older kids and parents can choose to participate on their own, or with their family, in other sessions. Plus, if you want to have some free time to nap or hang-out as a family, you can do that too as none of the session options are mandatory!

Sunday morning we will slow down the pace and enjoy more unstructured time, followed by a camp wide extravaganza. Past years have included events like the car rally, family relay, or constructing catapults for an egg launching competition. Alternatively, families that would like to head out on a hike can join a guided group or explore solo as well. All families will pack up before lunch and finish off the weekend with a final shared meal.

The real magic of dad and kids is about relishing an entire weekend uninterrupted by phones, chores, tasks and obligation. The only commitment is to savour the weekend and the opportunity for connection it provides. Uncles, grandpas, and all male caregivers are all welcome.

 
 

Accommodation

Dad & Kids campers have the option of staying in Craigcroft, Cabins or Sibley Tents.

Up to 10 families can stay in Craigcroft, a two story dormitory style building. Each room has a bunk bed and a single bed. The main kitchen and living room is a lovely shared hang out space. Craigcroft has one bathroom on each floor with a private shower.

There are six cabins at Fircom and each one has eight bunk beds. During Dad and Kids Camp cabins will be shared by 2-3 families. Cabins do not have attached bathrooms, and are a short walk away from the shared bathrooms under Jubilee Hall.

Sibley Tents are canvas tents with camp mattresses on the floor. Each Sibley Tent will house 1-2 families providing a more private and rustic experience. The closest washrooms are a short walk to to the Dining Hall.
