El Paso Fire Department to again host Summer Youth Camp

The El Paso Fire Department is offering a unique opportunity for local youth to gain understanding of fire and life safety issues while developing valuable skills.

Via their Summer Youth Camp, participants will learn about the El Paso Fire Department, search and rescue operations, team-building skills, and become advocates for safety.

The Summer Youth Camp is limited to 20 students between the ages of 13-17. Preference will be given to those who have not attended the camp previously. Campers will be chosen on the basis of their suitability for the program, as will be determined by the application found at youth.elpasofire.org .

EPFD officials share that learning at the Summer Youth Camp is “highly interactive and hands-on in nature. Most activities are conducted in pairs or teams, in which the campers must work together and rely on each other to succeed.”

They add that the nature of the activities and the locations where they are conducted require campers to follow explicit rules in order to ensure everyone’s safety. Campers should wear comfortable clothing, sunscreen and closed toed shoes, no sandals.

The Summer Youth Camp is free and will run from 8 AM – 1PM, July 17 thru July 19. All activities will be held at the El Paso Fire Department’s Training Academy.

Applications should be submitted to the Training Academy located at 6800 Delta Drive, inside Ascarate Park, Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The final deadline to submit applications is June 15, 2019.

To learn more the Fire Department and receive updates, resident are encouraged to visit elpasofire.org and follow the Department’s official social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
