Camp Fully Involved at NH Fire Academy
Sunday July 28, 2013 - Friday August 2nd, 2013
Concord, NH- Camp Fully Involved, an experience that provides young women with a comprehensive overview of the firefighting profession, will be held at the New Hampshire Fire Academy July 28-August 2. Cadets, young women 14? (completed the eighth grade) to 20 years old, and who are considering the fire or emergency medical services for a career though those looking for a summer adventure are also welcome. Applications are available at www.campfullyinvolved.com.
The camp provides the cadets a safe, dynamic, interactive and physically challenging environment to gain strength and knowledge while building confidence and leadership skills. This is done by providing the opportunity for young women to do things that they may have never done before and may never do again. The objective is to build that inner strength and confidence that comes with accomplishment and success.
Last year cadets came from all New England states, New York, Florida, California, and Oregon. International campers came from New Brunswick, Ontario, Quebec, and France. One successful cadet was a young deaf woman who completed the program with help from interpreters and her teammates. The interpreters were provided by the fire department that sponsored the camper.
The instructors of Camp Fully Involved reside all over New England and rank from Firefighter, Fire Marshal, Firefighter/Paramedic to Chief of Department, including many ranks in between. Instructors, both male and female and are the best in their field and many teach all over the US and Canada. The instructors do not receive any compensation and participate on their own time.
The camp is hosted by the New Hampshire State Fire Academy, located in Concord, NH and all technical and classroom programs are held and supported by this state of the art facility.
Camp Fully Involved is sponsored by Fire Instructors and Officers Association of New Hampshire, Daniel Webster Council's Learning for Life Division, Bergeron Protective Clothing, the Portsmouth Fire Fighters Charitable Association and the Barnstable County Fire Chiefs Association. Camp Fully Involved is non-profit program.
