Vancouver summer camp reaching out to refugees

A summer camp in Vancouver is raising money to provide 25 refugees with an opportunity to attend camp next summer.

Camp Fircom launched a fundraising campaign in late November to “find funding for 25 camper spots for refugee children escaping the conflict in Iraq, Syria and elsewhere.”

“To us, this opportunity represents the best of what BC can provide: a sanctuary in nature, and a chance to connect with a diversity of new peers, in a safe, vibrant setting,” a press release about the campaign states. “Other campers, too, will learn about their new friends’ experiences. We believe that relationships like these build peace and understanding. As a camp, we are so pleased to be a part of this effort.”
