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 is not a baby-sitting service! First Responder Camp is hands on training of life saving and rescue techniques used in the public safety system. Kids practice similar training performed by first responders during emergency incidents.
It is open to children 8 to 15 years old. There are two camps available depending on your child’s age. First Responder Camp for Youth is for 8 to 12 years old; while older, more adventurous children will participate in our First Responder Explorers.
Camp hours are:
Thursday, August 8th 9:30 AM - 4:00 PM
Friday, August 9th 9:30 AM – 2:00 PM
Training varies year to year and 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.
There is no fee to register your child in First Responder Camp if their parent/guardian is registered for the First Responder Virginia Convention.
