Advance Fire Department is preparing for its 7th annual Fire Camp, open to rising sixth-ninth grade boys and girls.

“The camp provides campers an opportunity to experience the exciting and challenging task of firefighters,” said Capt. Ronnie Robertson.

Each day is filled with hands-on learning activities, including: hose handling, rope rescue, flashover box, vehicle extrication, driving simulator and more.

“Advance Fire Camp is truly unlike any other camp a young person may attend,” he said. “The goal is to create interest in community service through their  local fire department.”

Fire Camp is a full three-day camp and will be held June 17-19. Camp begins at  8:30 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m.  The early registration fee is $50 and $30 for a second sibling.

The registration fee includes activities, lunch, snacks, camp T-shirt, and closing night graduation picnic.

Applications are required as the number of participants is limited.  Applications are  available at www.advancefiredepartment.org, through the Advance Fire Department Facebook  page, or stop by the station at 1869 N. 801 S. Early registration ends on May 3rd.  Late registration will remain open until June 12.
