The Denver Fire Department Career Exploration Camp is an excellent opportunity that allows young adults to learn, experience, and recognize the possibilities of a future career as a Denver firefighter. Campers will participate in hands-on simulated emergency fire and rescue situations, while earning certificates in first-aid and CPR. It is the mission of our instructors to instill participants with team building and leadership skills, along with valuable life lessons, while having fun! Our hope is to inspire these participants to consider working as a Denver Firefighter after their high school and college careers.
The Career Exploration Camp is three, seven-hour sessions dedicated to introducing local youth to the life of a firefighter with the Denver Fire Department. Our firefighters will help attendees build a sense of teamwork, responsibility and career awareness during the camp.
