Intermediates Summer Camp

Intermediate camp takes everything your junior camper learned and adds a couple extra fun twists. Intermediate campers also get a chance to challenge themselves on an overnight trip tailored to their level of experience! Intermediates will spend one night camping outdoors under the watchful eye of their camp counsellors. This is a great way to prepare our Intermediate campers for out trips in our Polaris youth programs. They also get to stay up until 9:30pm for special late night programming and enjoy two waterfront blocks to develop their canoe and kayak skills!

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.

Attending camp Fircom was one of the most worthwhile experiences of the year. My son returned from camp more comfortable in his own skin than I’ve seen in years. He keeps singing the camp songs and we’ve adopted them in our family and love them. Can’t wait to develop the disposable camera pictures!
