This camp will encourage young women to push through any mental, emotional, and physical barriers they may have, through a series of fire related challenges. Other activities may include; an aerial ladder climb, search and rescue techniques, vehicle extrication, and working with hose lines while suited up in protective firefighting gear and breathing apparatus.
The highlight of the week is a live fire exercise where the Summer Heat participants will extinguish a real propane fire!
Just like real firefighters, these young women will participate in team building and camaraderie.
There are no physical requirements in order to participate in this summer camp program.
We encourage all to apply.
