What are Fireside Adventure Camps all about?
Our Fireside Adventure camps about giving our teens and children the skills, knowledge and confidence to be self-propelled young leaders of their generation.
Explorer and Quest programs are a blend of an ultimate road trip for teens wanting to explore some of the most popular places to camp in British Columbia, while participating in an enriched leadership experience.
Our instructors support and teach participants how to lead themselves and develop a stronger sense of who they are, while learning the value of teamwork. Youth strive to understand their world and are eager to discover their leadership potential. Our 14/21-day programs are a great educational stepping stone for youth to determine their vision and understand their potential.
