Overview

Join Camp Fircom in raising funds to send kids to camp while hiking above the Howe Sound!
We'll meet in the Cypress Mountain parking lot in the morning and enjoy a challenging, awe-inspiring hike together. 
Hikers will bring a packed lunch and we'll dine together looking down on Gambier Island from the Summit. 

The Fircom Challenge is entering it's 9th year. Previous events have been paddle trips, hikes on Gambier, camp skills contest, etc.
Last year, the challenge raised $13,000 - a new record - and this year we're aiming for $15,000. 
All funds raised replenish the campership fund and help Fircom programs remain accessible to all who want to attend. 

In 2018, Camp Fircom helped 38 kids, 6 youth, and 16 families attend camp!
As camp continues to grow so does the need!
Come hangout with all your camp friends while also making the magic of camp happen for those in need.
