Kids can learn what it’s like to be a firefighter (without the danger) at CCFR Kids Fire Academy. Campers will spend the day at five activity stations trying out real firefighting equipment like fire hoses, thermal imaging cameras and fire extinguishers, seeing fire trucks up close and learning how they work, experiencing first-hand some of the other firefighter/EMT duties, and playing fun firefighting games.
Activities Will Include
- Firefighting Obstacle Course
- Fire Truck Tours
- Fire Extinguisher Lessons
- Kid-Sized Bucket Brigade
- Ladder Climb
- Safety Lessons
