    • The other field trip is to a local Fire Department where we get tours of the station, see equipment demonstrations and try out a fire hose!

  • Visitors to camp vary, but in the past, we have had demonstrations from police departments, bomb squads, K9 units, marine units, and border patrol

  • We learn basic first aid, Hands-Only CPR, and abdominal thrusts (Heimlich maneuver).

FAQ

If my child has participated in camp in the past, can they attend again?

In order to give as many children as possible the opportunity for this experience, priority is given to children who have not attended in the past. Children who have participated in camp in prior years will be put on a wait list and will be given a spot based on availability. 

When will I be notified if my child got a waitlist spot?

Registration is kept open until the day before camp starts. If the camp is full, we contact the first person on the waitlist as soon as we receive a cancellation.

Can siblings under 8 attend camp too?

Camp is limited to children ages 8 - 12. The material is most appropriate for children in this age range. 

Who can pick up my child from camp?

Each camper has an emergency card, there is a spot to indicate names of adults who are allowed to pick up your child. All adults picking up a camper must bring a valid ID - the name on the ID must match the name on the emergency card. 

Once i am registered will I get more information?

Yes! About a week before camp we will send you a detailed email with a parent information pack, a detailed itinerary, and forms to fill out about your child.​​
