Bus Information

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!
