From the get-go, your scamper will be safe, supported and having age-specific fun rooted in wonder, imagination & story! Our goal is to help your scamper transition from parent-supported fun to independent, confident and thoughtful adventure. 

 

In modified program blocks (just 45 minutes compared to the standard 1-2 hours for kids camp), Scampers will enjoy activities that get their imaginations racing! With each day following a new theme—from “Animals Wild!” to “The Big & The Small”, Scampers will explore camp, get dirty, and engage through story and self-directed learning. Starting each day in the “Scamper Home Base”, each day begins with a story that kicks off the day’s theme which leads into arts & crafts and helps shape their daily adventure to different areas of camp for brand-new activities ranging from: fairy-houses & forest exploration to baking cookies, writing songs, beach exploration, waterfront play and arts & crafts.


Scampers will also be offered healthy snacks more frequently and more “BOB” rest time (“Bodies on Bunks”) to rest and recharge. For kids who prefer not to nap during this time, we’ll have quiet story time and quite craft time in the shade. Scampers are also integrated with big kids camp! They will share meal times, morning circle programming and evening vespers with campers ages 8-16. Since scampers retire to bed earlier than the ‘big kids’, they will also have their own special campfire each night.

Let the adventure begin!

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!
