Fast Camp

The Fire and Police Chiefs of Butte County would like to challenge Butte County teens ages 16-19 to apply to Butte County’s sixth annual Fire And Safety Training Camp. All participants will become a team member who will participate in what could be described as a “day-in-the-life-of” police officers, firefighters, paramedics, and rescuers. Campers will be required to spend five nights and six days while participating in Camp. Local firefighters and police officers will challenge, encourage, mentor, support, and guide campers through 6 days of team building, problem solving, and physical activities. Campers will be educated in fire safety, rescue, law enforcement and EMS skills. In addition campers will complete certification in CPR & Basic First Aid.

Campers will be selected through an application process, with a commitment to selecting a broad geographical, socio-economic, and gender based representation of Butte County. 20 teenagers will be selected to participate in this year's Camp.
