We are excited to offer this unique opportunity for local youth to gain an understanding of fire and life safety issues while developing valuable skills used in search and rescue operations, team-building skills, and become an advocate for safety and the El Paso Fire Department.
The Summer Youth Camp is limited to 15 students between the ages of 13-17 who will be selected based on the attached application. Preference will be given to those who have not attended the camp previously. Campers will be chosen on the basis of their suitability for Summer Youth Camp, as will be determined by the enclosed application. The final deadline to submit applications is Friday, June 15, 2018. Applications should be submitted to the Training Academy located at 6800 Delta Dr. inside Ascarate Park Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Learning at the Summer Youth Camp is highly interactive and hands-on in nature. Most activities are conducted in pairs or teams, in which the campers must work together and rely on each other to succeed.
Summer Youth Camp activities will be held at the El Paso Fire Department’s Training Academy located at 6800 Delta Drive. The Summer Youth Camp will run from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on June 26-28 and is FREE to all eligible participants.
