About Our Kids Camps
Since 2005, Fireside Adventures has been providing overnight summer kids camps in Vancouver specializing in thematic and experiential based overnight kids camps in BC connecting kids with nature, gourmet food, traditional camp activities, sense of adventure and positive peers with other like-minded kids.
We are not a large camp with a sea of campers trying to navigate their experience locked in one location. We definitely are not your cookie type of kids’ overnight camp as we strive to bring children to their “roots of childhood”. We like to be mobile, small group and focused the essentials of creating the best childhood Vancouver & BC summer experience at camp.
All Fireside overnight kids camps focus on developing strong hands on skills around healthy cooking & eating, understanding climate change education, trying awesome land and water based activities, improving children's social emotional learning, having fun with creative arts and enjoying their summer holidays.
Our campers either sleep in tents at Porpoise Bay (Sechelt), Galiano Island and Gambier Island or enjoy a cabin setting at our Camp Capilano venue. Our staff are mature, experienced, skilled and thoughtful adults who are leading, teaching and inspiring campers. We follow a 7 camper to one staff ratio to provide a safe, fun and comfortable Vancouver overnight camp experience for campers.
