 P2 is a two-week advanced-leadership program designed to extend traditional camp programming to include team & individual skills workshops designed to develop and hone advanced leadership skills. Participants enjoy everything from: kayaking, archery, SUP boarding, outdoor living, leadership challenge initiatives, canoeing, improve games and more, AS WELL AS completing a 4-day hike across Gambier Island!

 P2 is a senior camp experience. While this program builds on the foundation of work completed in Polaris 1, P2 is open to all 15-16 year old youth with an interest in pushing the development of their leadership skills. 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.

Announcement!     Camp Fircom has partnered with the David Suzuki Foundation to create a new stream of programming in our Polaris 2 session. Kids participating in this session will do all the Fircom activities they love and get to try DSF staff led programs that highlight the natural ecosystems within the Howe Sound for an environmental perspective. The Camp Suzuki Leadership program (age 19+) will be on site over the week and all the programs (Juniors, Intermediates, Polaris 2, and Camp Suzuki) will jointly participate in activities related to reconciliation efforts with indigenous Coast Salish peoples.  It's going to be an incredible week! Don't delay in signing up today!!

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!
