Every year the Big White Fire Department hosts a campout on the roof of the Kids Centre, raising money for the Thrive Foundation. This incredible charity provides education on burn prevention and survivor support and recovery programs.

The Thrive Foundation is there to support burn survivors and their families through the recovery process.

Big White Fire Department runs a multitude of family-friendly activities. Additionally, all funds raised through donations and sales of their t-shirts go directly to the foundation. Stop by and meet a firefighter and help a great cause at the same time.
