Girls Empowerment Camp – Fire Service Careers
Girls Empowerment Camp (GEC) is a free two-day camp open to teens (boys and girls) ages 14-18 that introduces them to the fire service and provides campers with a realistic, hands-on overview of firefighting. The camp exposes the teens to all aspects of a fire service career beginning with requirements.
The program also empowers campers with life skills and professional guidance that encourages them to pursue a career in public safety.
The camp is being held at the Orange County Fire Authority (OCFA) Training Center. The free two-day camp will feature six hands-on stations for the campers to gain familiarity and experience with fire service functions. The activity stations will include: Ropes and Knots, CPR/First Aid, Aerial Ladder Climb, Confidence Course, Roof Prop and Hose Handling.
Dates: June 29-30, 2019, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Register here.
Additional Information: Thanks to the generosity of the Orange County Fire Authority Foundation, campers will receive an OCFA/GEC t-shirt, hat, water bottle, and backpack. The OCFA Foundation will also provide lunch, healthy snacks, and water for the campers. Teen-aged children of OCFA employees are welcome.
