The next chapter!
Polaris 1 is the exciting evolution of our foundational Kids Camp programming. 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 of peers, 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 more, as well as a 3-day out-trip.
Polaris campers stay in Sibley Tents, in their own part of camp a bit away from the rest of Kids Camp programming. This allows teens to stay up later and create their own experiences. During the outtrip Polaris campers will stay in tents with three of the group members. Sleeping arrangements are separated by gender.
Camp Fircom is continuing and deepening its partnership with the Squamish Nation and the David Suzuki Foundation during our last week of camp.
This partnership week will happen in the week of August 12th: Polaris 1, Session 3. Campers participating in this session will do many of the Fircom activities they love while also being immersed in culturally based programing led by Squamish elders. The Camp Suzuki Leadership program (age 19+) will be on site over the week and all the programs (Juniors, Intermediates, and Polaris) learn about the natural ecosystems within the Howe Sound from staff from the David Suzuki Foundation.
Staff are working hard on designing this exciting collaboration. More detailed information will be available in February and registration will open for this week then. It's going to be an incredible week! Stay tuned for more information.
