Registration Information

How do I register for camp?

    Registration online is the fastest way to register yourself or your child for a camp. 

    The registration has a number of forms as we need to know quite a few things to make camp a safe, fun experience for everyone. You'll be prompted to create a Household Account and you may re-login as many times as needed to finish your application. Applications that are in-progress do not have a reserved spot in camp.

                  What sessions can Camp Fircom help subsidize?

                    Camp Fircom can help subsidize any summer camp programs.You may apply for one session per person per summer.

                    Is it possible to attend camp for free?

                      Every family must pay a portion of the fee themselves, even if they are eligible for ministry or other outside funding.

                      How does Camp Fircom determine how much I subsidy I can receive?

                        Each family needs to contribute as much as they can afford and families are welcome to make monthly payments to help manage the cost. The subsidy will vary depending on income and cannot be determined without going completing the application.

                        Where does the money come from?

                          The campership program is supported by individuals, United Church congregations, business partners, charitable foundations, and others who donate to the Camp Fircom Society. The Polaris Youth Leadership program is made possible by the Vera Radcliffe-Thompson Memorial Fund through Ryerson United Church.

                          If I receive a subsidy through the campership program, what is expected of me?

                            Applying for subsidy requires a commitment of completing your payments before you arrive to camp. You also must complete the Camp Session Registration Form and Campership Application fully with all supporting documents and send them to Fircom at the same time. 

                            Is my application kept confidential?

                              Yes. Your application and financial documents are kept confidential. Your application is managed exclusively by the Camp Registrar who will contact you once your application has been received and reviewed.

                              If I received a campership from Camp Fircom in the past, can I apply again?

                                Yes. It is our goal that if possible, you continue to contribute more towards the camp fee each year.
