A twist on the traditional kids camp, focused on building independence, friendships and having fun!


At Fireside Adventures, campers explore, discover and play in some of Vancouver's, Howe Sound's and Whistler’s most stunning locations while learning the essentials of outdoor wilderness skills, being immersed in nature and becoming environmental stewards.

Each week is partnered with a community organization to give our campers a newfound skill set. We are very proud to partner with Sprouting Chef, Navigo Adventures and Indigenous Roots for our Vancouver Adventure Summer Camps.

OUR 2018 PROGRAMS WILL BE POSTED IN EARLY 2018
