Fire Camp runs Monday through Friday the week of July 25-July 29, 2016. The camp is dedicated to exposing kids entering 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students to what it is like to be a firefighter with the Alpharetta Fire Department. This camp is a great opportunity for firefighters to help kids build a sense of teamwork and responsibility. We accept applications for Fire Camp from children who are going into sixth grade in August 2016.

This camp is intended to be fun, challenging, entertaining, and educational. We want the children to learn safety lessons about things around their homes and schools that they encounter every day. They will have short periods of lectures and lessons each day followed by opportunities to actively participate in exercises designed to reinforce what they have been taught.

Their lessons and activities will center on the day and life of a firefighter and fire and life safety issues, but will also branch out to cover basic first aid, search and rescue and other fire service related topics. For most activities, attendees will be divided into teams, which will operate as a “fire company.” Children will get the opportunity to be the “company officer” for a day. Leadership principles will be taught to each child directly and indirectly.
