DThe Delaware State Fire School is hosting its first Camp Fury Delaware that is scheduled August 19th and 20th, 2017. This is an all-girls camp for girls ages 13 to 17, which will show teenage girls a variety of areas in Emergency Services.

This camp is designed to expose teenage girls to a variety of areas in the emergency and public service sectors, to share what career paths that they can follow, that were traditionally male dominated fields.

Guest Speakers will be from the areas of Fire, Rescue, and EMS, as well Law Enforcement and Emergency Management, and will allow the campers to experience some hands on skills.

The camp is a two-day, “day camp”, which will involve some minor exercises and stretching in the mornings, and lead into speakers and the “hands-on” sessions for each area represented. The girls will have a chance to speak to women from each field and will be allowed an opportunity to experience some of the skills involved with each job. There will also be some static displays planned, like emergency services vehicles, as well as a tour of the Delaware Emergency Management Agency’s Emergency Operations Center in Smyrna. The camp ends with a ceremony with a special guest speaker.

The camp is open for registration for Camp Fury until July 28th through the Delaware State Fire School Website: www.statefireschool.delaware.gov or through the Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/CampFuryDelaware/.
