Dear Parent or Guardian,
FIRE CAMP is a local 4-day camp, dedicated to teaching middle school age kids what it is like to be a firefighter for the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District. Fire Camp is a great opportunity for firefighters to help kids build a sense of teamwork and responsibility. We only accept applications from children that are 11, 12 or 13 years of age.
FIRE CAMP takes place at Fire Station 21, located at 7641 Greenback Lane, Citrus Heights, 95610, near Sunrise Mall. In order for any child to attend camp he or she will have to rely on you or another adult for daily transportation.
Hours for FIRE CAMP are as follows:
Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.
Thursday and Friday from 8:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. *Friday end time is flexible
You will be notified by EMAIL following the June 5th application deadline as to whether your child was accepted or put on a waiting list.
If your child is selected to attend, we will be holding a MANDATORY orientation meeting on Tuesday, June 27, 2017 from 7:00 P.M. to 8:30 P.M. to give you further information about Fire Camp. The mandatory meeting will take place at Fire Station 21, located at 7641 Greenback Lane, Citrus Heights, 95610, near Sunrise Mall. In order for your child to attend camp, you must attend the orientation meeting, so please put the date June 27th and the dates of FIRE CAMP (July 11-14) on your calendar now.
At the orientation meeting, please bring a check for $100.00 per child. Please write FIRE CAMP in the ‘for’ line on the check.
In order to offer this program to as many children as possible, if you have previously attended Fire Camp, please do not apply again as we are only accepting first time campers.
Due to the logistics of supporting Fire Camp, we are not able to accept applications from those interested in being helpers/assistants.
If you have any questions please email us at email@example.com. We look forward to meeting you and having a fun-filled week!
*Students that reside outside the District boundary may also apply, but their application will only be considered after the students that live within the District (depending on the amount of remaining openings).
