Description

Girls Empowerment Camp (GEC) is a free two-day camp open to teens ages 14-18 that introduces them to the fire service and provides campers with a realistic, hands-on overview of firefighting. The camp exposes the teens to all aspects of a fire service career beginning with requirements. The program also empowers campers with life skills and professional guidance that encourages them to pursue a career in public safety. The camp is being held at the Orange County Fire Authority (OCFA) Training Center.

Dates: June 29-30, 2019, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
