12TH ANNUAL JUNIOR FIREFIGHTER CAMP
JULY 17th – 22nd, 2023
The Manlius Fire Department will be hosting their 12th Annual Junior Firefighter Camp. The Camp will be held for one week in July and is open to all students in the Fayetteville-Manlius School District that will be entering grades 5 through 8 in the upcoming 2023-2024 school year.
Throughout the week, Junior Firefighters will experience what it is like to be a Firefighter/EMT in a “Fire Academy” like atmosphere. Each Junior Firefighter will receive a uniform shirt and official photo ID, which must be worn each day. Daily routine will include formations and marching, physical training, classroom sessions, demonstrations by local and state firefighters, as well as lunch and break time.
Junior Firefighters will receive training from Firefighters, EMT’s and Paramedics in the areas of:
History and Tradition of the Fire Service, Fire Prevention/Safety, CPR/First Aid, Fire Service
Tools and Equipment, Fire Suppression, Search and Rescue, Vehicle Extrication, Physical Fitness and much more. The weeklong camp will conclude with an award ceremony on Saturday morning.
Registration will run May 1st, starting at 6:00am, through May 8th, ending at 6:00pm. Registration will be web based and will be done by lottery. Our 2022 Award Winners have automatically been given a spot. Past attendees will be given 2 entries in the lottery selection.
More information about registration will be sent out closer to May! Keep an eye on the socials and your emails!
