Fircreek Programs

What Programs Does Fircreek Offer?

In order to effectively meet the needs of children entering grades 1-6, the Fircreek program divides this broad range into two age groups. Children entering grades 1-3 are referred to as “Fircreek” (FC) and those entering grades 4-6, we call “Summer Blast” (SB).


Grades 1–3

Summer Blast

Grades 4–6

Fircreek Day Camp

The Fircreek program is designed for children entering grades 1–3.  Campers start off their day with open play time. Then at 9:00 AM, the day kicks off with songs, skits and a story. After that, campers participate in a Fircreek Adventure Zone Activity. This could include art, water activities, sports or activities in the woods. After lunch, there is a full afternoon of activities, including Cabin Free Time, a God Encounters session, and all-camp games and activities. Parents pick up their kids from 4:45–5:30 PM.

Both Fircreek and Summer Blast

Both age groups, Fircreek and Summer Blast, share similar program experiences and schedules, with the exception of Adventure Zone and Cabin Free Time. While Fircreek campers are at their Adventure Zones, Summer Blast campers are in Cabin Free Time, and vice versa.

Summer Blast

The Summer Blast program is designed to give 4th-6th graders a graduated experience at Fircreek Day Camp. Campers will experience all the things that have made Fircreek a summer highlight, plus the added bonus of intensified activity classes that we call “Majors”. This high-energy program focuses on skill development and implementation in a wide variety of activity streams, within the four Fircreek Adventure Zones (see Activities).

Examples of Summer Blast “Majors” from past summers:
  • “Extreme Sports” (climbing wall, paintball, skateboarding, blobbing)
  • “No Fear Camping” (wilderness survival skills)
  • “Ceramics”
  • “Uncle Bob’s Woodshop” (woodworking)
