Girls' Fire Camp

Join us for our 3rd Annual Girls' Fire Camp on June 8! 

Attendees  will go through multiple age appropriate modules and learn what Fire & EMS is about! We hope this camp allows girls of all ages to see possible future opportunities in this field. There are a limited number of tickets that will be available and registration will be open until all tickets have been claimed. There will be a waitlist for those that were not able to secure tickets during initial registration. If a ticket is made available, we will contact you in order of your place on the waitlist.

Elementary-Age Camp will be held from 8:00am-1:00pm with lunch included.

Elementary-Age students will join a group that will teach them about Fire Safety, Fire Science, and different types of equipment. Through age appropriate modules, they will use small hose lines, learn how to make a fire escape plan, join their own bucket brigade and more! 

6th-12th Grade Camp will be held from 8:00am-3:30pm with lunch included.

Middle & High School students will join a group in the morning to begin learning about EMS. This will include Basic First Aid, relays and Stop The Bleed. Students will then move on to Basic Fire Science, an Obstacle Course, Hands-on extrication procedures and more!  

The schedule is subject to change. Attendees will be notified of any changes.
