Girls' Fire Camp

Join us for our first ever Girls' Fire Camp on June 18! 

Register Button Opens in new window

Girls that are rising 1st-12th graders 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 only 50 tickets available and registration will be open until all 50 tickets have been claimed.

1st-5th Graders Camp will be held from 8:00am-1:00pm with lunch included.

1st through 5th grade students will join a crew of women 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-4:30pm with lunch included.

6th-12th Grade students will join a crew of women in the morning to begin learning about EMS. This will include Basic First Aid, CPR and Stop The Bleed. Students will then move on to Basic Fire Science, Chain of Command, an Obstacle Course, Hands-on extrication procedures and more!
