The next chapter!

Polaris 1 is the exciting evolution of our foundational Kids Camp program. In this co-ed seven day leadership program teens are given a more active role in shaping their week, and learn to lead themselves within a group. After a week of specialized camp based programming, the Polaris team will embark on a 3 day out-trip that combines canoeing and hiking and will expand teens love of camp to include a knowledge of Gambier Island and Howe Sound. Destinations will include Halkett Bay, Doug Bay, or Gambier lake. This out-trip includes a day of canoeing and a day of hiking!

Polaris 1 is a week-long introductory-leadership program designed to mix traditional camp activities, back-country skills and spirit while introducing participants to the idea of stepping up and becoming strong leaders amongst their peers. By overcoming personal challenge in the context of a supportive group, Polaris 1 campers will recognize their own potential and leave ready for the next adventure. Participants enjoy everything from: kayaking, archery, SUP boarding, outdoor living, leadership challenge initiatives, canoeing, improve games and a 3-day out-trip!


Polaris campers stay in Sibley Tents, large canvas tents that fit 8-9 people comfortably and have foam mattresses and space for luggage. These tents are a great way to prepare for the outtrip, where Polaris campers will stay in 3 or 4 person tents. Sleeping arrangements are separated by gender. Counsellors sleep next to the Sibley tents in their own one person tent.

We couldn't be happier with the experience our daughter had in Polaris 1 at Fircom this summer. It was her first time but we felt so confident dropping her off. Communication with the camp was great leading up to the start. All questions answered promptly. And her leaders Julie and Layla were awesome! Professional, strong and fun. She's definitely signing up for Polaris 2 next year. Thank you!
