Fireside Adventures provides fun and engaging summer camp experiences designed to foster confidence, independence, leadership skills, lasting memories and friendships.
Youth Outdoor Leadership
Since 2005, Fireside Adventures have been carefully crafting meaningful and fun summer camp experiences for local and International youth in some of Canada’s most stunning locations.
With help from our engaged outdoor leadership instructors and inspired by surrounding nature, campers are given the opportunity to challenge their perceived limitations, strive for excellence, and learn about their individual potential.
Our 14 to 21 day summer camps are composed of eco-community stewardship projects, outdoor adventure activities and skills development, intensive leadership training and cultural learning. Youth seeking post secondary school prerequisites and/or who require leadership certification for employment will benefit from this opportunity.
Our youth outdoor leadership camps are designed to provide an outlet for youth to examine their choices, discover their leadership abilities and most of all to have an amazing and fun summer adventure!
It's never too early to have kids exploring and adventuring. Our kids camps are crafted with these young minds in mind - ensuring our camps provide great outdoor learning opportunities that are experiential and fun. Kids from the age of 8 to 12 participate in outdoor activities like hiking, swimming, canoeing and camping, while at the same time improving their social and life skills, growing their sense of independence and self confidence. These camps are the perfect stepping stone for these young leaders to begin their appreciation of the outdoors and to recognize their their own abilities!
