Moms & Kids Camp is all about balance! A week at Camp Fircom gives moms (and aunts & grandmas!!!) an opportunity to both connect with their children in a magical, natural setting and take some time for themselves to slow down and 'smell the cedar trees.'
In the mornings, moms will have an opportunity to engage in 'Moms Only' activities (Ex. yoga, guided meditation, garden sessions, kayaking, paddle boarding, canoeing, painting, spiritual exploration, nature journaling, archery, etc.) while their children participate in developmentally appropriate activities with our caring, highly trained Camp Counsellors. In the afternoons, Camp Counsellors will offer a number of family-friendly programming options and there will also be ample free time for moms and kids to explore the camp and participate in waterfront activities.
Each evening, there will be family-friendly programming offered, including a range of activities from cooperative games to crafts, talent show, campfire sing-a-longs, and reflective practices. Once the kids are in bed, child-minding will be offered by Camp Counsellors so that moms can participate in some special evening programming such as drumming, walking the labyrinth, candlelight yoga, dessert on the dock and more.

We just finished our second year at the Mom & Kids Camp and are still buzzing from it. This is a tradition for my daughter and I that we won’t give up easily. I love watching my daughter go off and experience freedom and new challenges, all while I’m doing the same with a group of amazing women. This year I hardly took any photos because I was just simply too “in the moment” to care. Now that’s what I call memory building!
