Polaris 1 (P1) is a two-week 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 in the communities. Participants enjoy everything from: kayaking, archery, SUP boarding, outdoor living, leadership challenge initiatives, canoeing, improve games and more. Campers will also complete a 4-day hike across Gambier Island!
P1 is a senior camp experience; it can be completed on it’s own or can be part of a graduated program that aims to train future staff and leaders at large.
Depart Horseshoe Bay -- 10:00am
Depart Fircom -- 10:30am
In order to make the transportation process easy on everyone, Fircom is providing bus transportation to and from Horseshoe Bay from East and West Vancouver!
Horseshoe Bay is a very popular spot during the summer months and Sundays and Fridays (the first and last day of camp) are especially busy with very limited parking. We’re encouraging all parents to use our Camp Fircom Bus to let us take care of getting campers to and from camp. And besides, the camp experience starts on the bus - our staff will be playing bus games and singing songs!
