Camperships

The campership fund helps subsidize camp costs to children, youth, and families who cannot otherwise afford to attend camp. We mostly serve people from the Greater Vancouver regional district and believe it is our duty to understand and respond to the with the financial realities of the families we serve.  As this area becomes more expensive for housing, we have increased our amounts for camperships knowing many families have very little disposable income. 

Coming to camp and getting a break from the daily grind of city living allows kids and youth a true summer vacation. This chance for rest and relaxation amid the amazing natural surroundings of Gambier allows for spiritual growth, personal growth, and just plain old fun.

Through this donor program, you can give someone the gift of summer memories that last a lifetime.

 

A Campership Story

“Going to Camp Fircom is the highlight of our year for my daughter and I. We have been a single parent family since the day my daughter was born. Being at Camp Fircom is hands down the best holiday we have ever had together.  

It is the first time I ever spent time with my daughter without having to multi-task or plan ahead. Having all the food and activities taken care of, allows us to fully enjoy, ourselves, each other and the other families.  

The amount of care the staff and volunteers provide combined with the thoughtful programming and individual attention allows us to sink into a complete relaxation and joy just burbles forth.

That one week at Mom & Kids camp gives me the energy to propel us forward the rest of the year. It also inspires me to create more of a sense of community in our lives. After Mom & Kids camp is over, my daughter asks every week when we can go back to camp - she does this non-stop until the next summer.

I am so grateful to Camp Fircom Mom & Kids camp - it literally has transformed my relationship with my daughter and there is nothing more precious than that!”
