The Delaware State Fire School has developed camps to help introduce local youth into the world of the Fire and Emergency Services. Two camps have been developed for these kids to learn more about the opportunities available to them in the State of Delaware.
JUNIOR FIRE CAMP
The Junior Fire Camp was developed to let kids ages 13 to 17, experience training and applications available to the Fire Service. The camp is a three-day, all-day camp. The kids will learn skills essential to the fire service, how to work as a team, and gain new relationships in the fire service. On the last day, campers will be able to have family members come and see them perform demonstrations with a cookout.
CAMP FURY DELAWARE
Camp Fury was first developed in Tucson, Arizona through a grant to help young women get exposed to careers in the fire service. This camp soon expanded over the years to include various areas of the emergency services including police and has developed into camps across the United States. The Delaware State Fire School, working in conjunction with the original Camp Fury founders, has developed Camp Fury Delaware. The camp is open to young women ages 13-17 and is intended to help develop confidence in their abilities, encourage working as a team, and developing new relationships with girls having a similar interest. The camp is a two-day, weekend day camp. The campers will have female instructors teaching them and guiding them through hands-on skills sessions. The campers will have an opportunity to speak with and learn from a panel of women leaders in the fire and emergency services, being able to see the opportunities available to them in the various areas of the emergency services. The camp will end with family being able to come in for a closing ceremony.
