      The Grand Re-Opening

      Camp Fircom is having an official grand re-opening to celebrate the end of our pilot year of operation. After many hard years of rebuilding the camp is now operational again. We want to thank everyone who made this miracle happen! Come celebrate with us!

      To celebrate, we are welcoming everyone in the Fircom community of friends to join us for a day of fun at camp. Whether you want to explore the forest and ocean, or relax and enjoy the view from Jubilee porch, this day is for you. Activities are designed to appeal for all ages, babies to elders. In days at Fircom in the past, there have been appearances from pioneers, pirates, robots, and even the villanous Filthy McNasty. We don't know what kind of trouble we might have to confront this year - but come prepared for a day of excitement and adventure.

      So please, join us! This is a fantastic opportunity to bring up your friends and family who haven't yet experienced the magic of Fircom. Tickets are only $10 to open this opportunity to as many as possible; however, please consider adding a donation to your total if you are able.

      We have done our best to make Fircom an accessible place for those with disabilities, but please feel free to call our office if you have questions or concerns. If you would like to canoe or hike, be sure to bring appropriate footwear, and it's always a good idea to bring your rain jacket to Gambier.
