Culver City Fire Department Girl's Camp

 

October 13, 2022

The Culver City Fire Department Girls Camp, is set to take place Saturday

and Sunday November 12th & 13th 2022, 9am – 4pm.

Last year’s camp was a huge success with an overwhelming response

from the community and students of Culver City, with the camp selling out in

just 2 days. The Culver City Fire Department proudly hosted 35 girls ages 14

– 18, for this free two-day hands-on camp at our training facility on Jefferson.

The mission of the CCFD Girls’ Camp is to introduce young adults, ages

14-18, to a career in public safety. The program is designed to provide individuals

with a realistic hands-on introduction to firefighting and Emergency

Medical Services (EMS) skills. Over the course of two days, campers

will learn how to wear personal protective equipment, climb ladders, pull fire

hose, Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and more. Each student will be

supervised by firefighters in a safe and physically challenging environment,

with an emphasis on building self-confidence and fortitude.

The CCFD Girls’ Camp is a free two-day day camp. All teens, ages 14-18,

are welcome to attend.
