Advance Fire Department is preparing for its 11th annual Fire Camp.

The camp is open to rising 6th-9th grade boys and girls.

“It 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.”

These include 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.  The goal is to create interest in community service through their  local fire department.”

Fire Camp is three days June 17-19. 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 a closing night graduation picnic.

Applications are required as the number of participants is limited. Applications are available at, or through the fire department Facebook page; or stop by the station at 1869 NC 801 S. Early registration will end on May 31. Late registration will remain open until June 14h.
