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

DEPOSIT: A deposit must be paid to secure your spot in a program. 

PAYMENT: The full cost must be paid in full at least two weeks prior to the start of your program.


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.

Are there sibling discounts?

Yes. Families will get a discount of $20 off the registration fee of a second child, and $30 off the registration fee of a third child. Campers must all be siblings and must be registered at the same time.

Can I register using paper forms?

How do you keep my information confidential?

Your application and financial information are kept confidential. Your registration information is managed through secure software and is password protected. Your registration information will be received by the Camp Registrar who will process your application. The Camp Director will also have complete access to the medical, financial and other information. The Camp Nurse and Camp Counsellors will receive the medical and personal (not financial) information they need to best care for your camper. 

How does the photo waiver apply to camp?

Camp Fircom Society is constantly updating its website and promotional materials. We are proud of our programs and would like to be able to show pictures that demonstrate what we do. We take pictures during all our programs. We ask for permission to use your image or your child’s image in promotional material, and on our website to promote the benefits of Camp Fircom Society's camps 

Am I eligible to receive financial assistance? How Much?

Camp Fircom can help subsidize any summer camp programs for families whose financial circumstances make them unable to pay the full fee for their child's camping program. You may apply for one session per person per summer.

The subsidy will vary depending on income and is determined based on a combination of annual income and family circumstance. While we are able to distribute substantial subsidies in accordance with circumstances, every family must pay some portion of their registration fee. 

Please complete the subsity application form as you proceed through the registration process.

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.

CONFIDENTIALITY

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 reviewe

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.
