This two-day experience is designed to engage young women who are current high school seniors, in what it is like to be a female firefighter through fun hands-on activities. The camp itinerary will consist of various stations and scenarios each day, such as: taking hydrants, hose practices, live fire training, forcible entry, fire extinguishers, emergency medical skills, and stop the bleed. It is an all-encompassing introduction to an amazing and rewarding profession.
The All Future Female Firefighters Camp not only shows young ladies what it takes to be a firefighter, but it will also show them what it takes to be a strong, independent woman. The girls will learn leadership, followership skills, and confidence-building by using firefighting as a medium. Each participant will learn about firefighter duties and responsibilities, physical fitness, nutrition, and breaking through stereotypes. Most importantly they will learn about pushing past limits, encouraging each other, and working as a team.
This camp is typically held in April. Watch this page for details about the 2024 camp.
