Alpharetta Fire Camp Builds Teamwork

Released June 16, 2016 12:43 PM

Call out to all rising sixth graders...spend an exciting week this summer at Alpharetta Fire Camp!  Discover more about life as a firefighter during this challenging, educational and fun camp, held July 25-29 from 8:30AM-3PM daily at Wills Park on the open field near the equestrian center.

Fire Camp is a great opportunity for Alpharetta’s firefighters to help youth build a sense of teamwork, responsibility, and leadership. Camp activities focus on fire and life safety issues, basic first aid, search and rescue, and other fire service related topics. Short periods of instruction are followed by active participation exercises to reinforce lessons learned. Campers will be divided into “fire company” teams and have a chance to be “company officer” for a day.

Applications for Fire Camp are available at Alpharetta Recreation and Parks centers, with registration available on-site during general hours of operation. Cost for the camp is $125 for City of Alpharetta or City of Milton residents and $187.50 for non-residents. For more information about Alpharetta Fire Camp, contact Capt. Jeff Garreau with Alpharetta Fire Department at jgarreau@alpharetta.ga.us.
