British Columbia has endless camping and recreational activities available in pristine natural settings that provide countless learning opportunities.
Fireside campers are guided through western Canada’s most scenic areas, from hiking along wild Pacific coastal shores, biking through Galiano Island, walking amongst massive old growth forests and discovering secret waterfalls.
Fireside Adventures offers programs with varying levels of intensity and duration. For detailed camp information, including tentative day by day trip plans, visit www.firesideadventures.ca.
