What do we do at the Children's Retreat?
Children meet at designated spots in the Lower Mainland and at ferry terminals to meet their leaders and the chartered bus for their trip to Camp Fircom. Participants and leaders will arrive at around 3 pm after a quick trip on the water taxi from Horseshoe Bay to Gambier Island, greet other leaders, get settled into their cabins with their leaders, have dinner, connect, sing, play games, and meet the community for the weekend, snack and then off to bed!
Our meals are in the Dining room where we are greeted by our Camp Fircom hosts and are served amazing, yummy food. During the day we will have time for worship, singing, storytelling, workshops (like games and craft activities), a campfire evening program and much more!
We eat (again!), sing, worship together and say farewell to our amazing community of friends! After lunch time, our Water Taxi and chartered bus takes us back to our designated drop off place, ready to be picked up by our families!
