Advance Fire Department is preparing for its 10th annual Fire Camp open to rising 6th-9th grade boys and girls.

The camp provides campers an opportunity to experience the tasks of firefighters.  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,” said Capt. Ronnie Robertson. “The goal ois to create interest in community service through their local fire department.”

Fire Camp is a three-day camp and will be June 19th, 20th, & 21st.  Camp day 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, or through the Advance Fire Department Facebook  page.  You may also stop by the station at 1869 NC 801 S.

Early registration will end on May 31. Late registration will remain open until June 16.
