Teen Fire-Rescue Camp Scheduled For June 8-10
At Collin College's Central Park Campus In McKinney

May 15, 2009 – Many kids at some point in their life dream of becoming a firefighter.

For a group of boys and girls aged 14-18, this dream will become a reality – sort of – thanks to the 11th annual Fire-Rescue Camp from June 8-10 at Collin College’s Central Park Campus Fire Academy, 2001 Community Ave., in McKinney.

The camp is limited to 18 participants and includes a $150 registration fee. The registration fee includes a T-shirt and is required to reserve your place in the camp, which is designed for attendees to participate in hands-on training exercises and learn the skills of professional fire fighters.

Campers should be in good, physical condition and are required to bring a sack lunch each day. They also should wear blue jeans, athletic shoes, leather work gloves and be willing to learn and enjoy working as a team member.

Additionally, fire-fighting gear will be provided and participants will not be allowed to leave the training grounds unless accompanied by a parent.

The Fire-Rescue Camp will conclude with a skills demonstration for family and fiends.

To registrar or for more information, call Leslie Thetford, Monica Wright or Tiffany Rosen at 972.548.6836.
