Join Camp Fircom in raising funds to send kids to camp! 100% of pledges for this hike-a-thon go towards the campership fund. As camp continues to grow - so does the need. Help us support even more campers and families in 2020.

Get pledges from your friends just to hike it - or maybe even do it in costume! This year we're encouraging participants to take it up a notch and get pledges for publicly showing how campy you can be for camp! #campyforcamp

Don't think you'll know anyone? Don't worry about it! Hikers will meet early and play some fun camp games to get warmed up and introduced. This event is all about loving and supporting camp - and camp is all about making new friends!

How it Works

1. Form a team, or join solo, and register for the hike. Registration fee of $15 includes the gondola trip down!
2. Complete a profile so people know why this is important to you.
3. Start inviting your community to support you! 
4. You can ask for basic pledges, or commit to wearing a costume if you reach your fundraising goal! Fircom will provide all hikers with tools and templates to use to help with fundraising.

The Campership Fund

This hike-a-thon is in support of the Fircom campership fund. The campership fund helps cover part of the cost of going to camp for children and families who wouldn't be able to come to camp otherwise. Through both individual applications and community partners, Camp Fircom is proud to support upwards of 80 campers this year.
