Event Details

The Camp Fircom Society is hosting a one-day hiking event to raise money to make summer camp more affordable for children and families. 

An intrepid group of hikers will criss cross Gambier Island, climb up an over a mountain or two and trek through some spectacular Howe Sound wilderness. In the weeks leading up to the big day, they will be seeking pledges and support from family and friends. The money each hiker raises will go directly to "camperships" to make summer camp accessible to everyone. 

There will be a challenging option for adults age 16+. This group will come up to camp early in the morning on June 1st to begin their long hike through the woods and get back again in time for dinner. 

There will also be a family-friendly adventure to get kids in on the fun which will arrive a bit later in the mornign. This shorter hike will be fun for parents, grandparents, and kids to do together. Upon returning from their hike families can enjoy some free time on the site, join in on some fun programming options, and cheer on the hardcore hikers as they finish their trek. Everyone will enjoy a delicious sit-down dinner together and awards will be handed out for top fundraisers. 

Top fundraisers in both the Family and Challenge catergories will win a two-night stay in Fircom's Farm House cottage. The Farm House has two Queen size bedrooms and a double pull-out couch sleeping a maximum of six people. This beautifully appointed cottage has a full kitchen, open concept living-dining room, and comes with linens. Must be used in the off-season (Oct to April).

Come join us for this fun filled day at camp and help raise money to ensure camp is accessible to anyone who wants to go!
