Cost $240-285 (Sliding Scale)

Bursaries Available

Performing Arts: This stream will explore our expression of self through offerings of drama, theatre sports, playbuilding, improve and music (playing, creating). Brining an instrument is an option.

Spiritual Practice: This stream will explore contemporary and ancient spiritual practices that will lead participants deeper into their understanding of themselves, each other and The Sacred. During both indoor and outdoor sessions, we will explore various practices including meditation, yoga, chanting and sacred ecology.

Outdoor Adventure: In this stream we will be looking at our interconnection with nature and the world around us. Through a variety of outdoor activities (games, survival challenges and of course, adventure) we will experience a new connection to both the land and ourselves.

Time to Play: In this stream we will be going back to basics and exploring what it means to truly enjoy the simple things in life. We will be experiencing the world through our artistic and child-like senses with plenty of games, puzzles, arts and crafts.

Food & Farm: New this year, campers have the opportunity to learn about Camp Fircom’s Food to Fork program and experience the earth and the table at their fingertips. Help plant, help garden and help make and serve meals throughout the weekend.
