Millard Learning Centre, Galiano Island, British Columbia
At Camp Fireside, we specialize in children’s gourmet cooking, wilderness camping, environmental education, outdoor adventure sports and connecting the best of a summer camp experience with childhood.
Each week is theme-based to ensure our BC summer camp experiences offer variety and meet the needs of different campers. Every week is designed to be interesting, inspiring and dynamic so your kids can enjoy multiple weeks with us. We are located on Galiano Island (partnered with Millard Learning Centre) where campers can enjoy and explore a beautiful 188 acre property comprised of a food forest, foraging garden, eco-learning centre, endless shoreline trails, an abundance of forested areas and access to a secluded waterfront cove for swimming, paddle boarding, and tide pooling.
Every week will include some shared core elements such as gourmet cooking, forest-ology, and paddle boarding, while bringing in a unique educational component such as language learning, outdoor adventure skills, field trips, and climate change education.
