About Camp

In January of 2008 planning for the first camp began. A group of firefighters representing the different fire departments in Vigo County discussed the goals of the camp. The general consensus was to establish a safe and fun learning environment that accurately portrayed the specific job functions of firefighters.

The campers learn about the tools used by firefighters, put on fire gear, connect a fire hose to a fire hydrant, roll fire hose, spray water, crawl through a maze, use fire extinguishers to extinguish a real fire, and more. The campers also get lessons on basic first aid, hands only CPR, and learn what to do in the event of an emergency.

We randomly divide the campers into groups and watch them as they learn to work together as a team to achieve success.

Camp is fun for everyone. The campers go home at the end of the day smiling and the staff is filled with the satisfaction of knowing their hard work was worth it.

Lunch is provided each day for the campers. All campers will get a t-shirt, a sport bottle, a group picture, and a certificate of completion.
