Ever feel you can’t attend an event because there is nothing for your children to do? Come to First Responder Virginia and enroll them in our Rescue Camp. It not a baby sitting service! Rescue Camp is hands on training of life saving techniques used in the public safety system. Kids practice similar training performed by first responders during emergency incidents. After attending they can write a "What I did this summer" paper that will make the other children envious.
The Rescue Camp is open to children 8 to 15 years old. There are two camps available depending on your child’s age. Rescue Camp for Youth is for 8 to 12 years old; while older, more adventurous children can participate in our Rescue Camp Explorers.
Camp hours are:
Thursday 9:30 AM - 4:00 PM
Friday 9:30 AM – 2:00 PM
Training varies year to year and can includes CPR / AED, vital signs, splinting, ropes and rappelling, fire extinguisher training, EVOC and relays putting all their training together in a competition style scenario.
