Juniors Summer Camp

Juniors camp is a fantastic way to engage with the best that Fircom has to offer! As one of our classic "Kids Camp" programs, it’s chock full of summer adventure. Monday to Friday are packed full of fun and bonding with a community where you can truly be who you are!

Junior campers participate in a variety of activities that are fun, engaging, and instructive. Monday through Friday, campers spend part of the day enjoying their individual-choice activities, while the rest of the day is spent on adventures with their cabin group. Campers are encouraged to balance team work and independence in a highly supportive and safe camp environment. These campers will participate in Theme Days, friendly camp-wide games and all-camp campfires to close-out the camp day.

Camp Philosophy

Everything at camp is “challenge by choice”. No kid is forced to anything they don’t want to do, but they will be encouraged and supported through whatever is challenging them to try it. For first time campers, this ensures camp is safe and fun. The variety of options means there will be something for everyone to enjoy.

My 8-year old daughter (who was very anxious about going to camp and adamant about not going right up until 2 days before) had the time of her life and came home thrilled that she had made 11 new best friends. Thank you Camp Fircom for providing such a wonderful experience!
