Fire School Summer Camps



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

Camp Dates: June 26 – 28, 2018


The Junior Fire Camp was developed to let kids ages 13 to 17, experience training and applications available to the Fire Service. This camp is similar to others in the region, that allow campers who may not be eligible to join their local fire company, to experience some of the aspects of training that they could experience if they pursued becoming a firefighter.

The first year, the camp was a three-day, all-day camp. The campers learned skills essential to the fire service, how to work as a team, and gain new relationships in the fire service. Activities included Fire/Rescue boat rides, and a tour of a firehouse, learning about apparatus, local fire service history, and the day-to-day life at a fire station. On the last day, campers were able to have family members come and see them demonstrate skills that hey learn with a cookout.

In June 2108, the camp will have a similar organization and will again be three days long. Keep an eye out for the new application!

2018 Junior Fire Camp Information and Application Coming Soon!

 

CAMP FURY DELAWARE

Camp Dates: August 10 – 12, 2018

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.

In it’s first year, the camp was a two-day, weekend day camp. The campers were taught by all female instructors, teaching them and guiding them through hands-on skills sessions throughout the weekend. The campers also had 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 ended with family being able to come in for a closing ceremony where the campers were recognized.

In June 2018, the camp will now be three days long. More information will be coming about the additions to the camp! Keep an eye out for the new application!
