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.
Camp Dates: June 26 – 28, 2018 – Cost: $50
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.
Camp Dates: August 10 – 12, 2018 – Cost: FREE
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.
