Family Camp is a gentle blend of structure and choice, giving you a chance to play, relax, discover, learn and share with other families.
After arriving and settling into your accommodation Friday afternoon you’ll have time to get to know your fellow families and before we open the weekend with a delicious dinner. The evening will include games, campfire and snack. Late night programs offer families 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 sumptuous breakfast. The morning and afternoon program session will feature a variety of options suitable for a wide age-range, including kayaking, archery, farm exploration, and exciting arts options. 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. 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 sessions are mandatory.
Saturday night will have a themed dress-up dinner for a chance to win prizes! Afterwards, enjoy a camp-wide game that gets families running around in search of victory. End the day with a snack at the creative café where you and your children can perform your favourite songs, and enjoy being goofy together. Optional late night programming will be offered for parents who want to enjoy a campfire.
On Sunday, take in another morning ocean dip or attend the optional morning reflective practice. Before packing up and eating lunch, get in a last round of activities to load up on family memories to last you until next summer!

After being away from Camp Fircom for 30 years I had the opportunity to finally return with my 4 year old daughter and offer her a weekend of new experiences. After two days and nights of fun, friends and fire side songs it was like I had never left. It was so good to come home.
