Registration Opens for Orland Fire District Fire and Life Safety Camp
Beginning June 1st, registration for the 4th Annual Kid’s Fire and Life Safety Camp will open. This year the camp will be held July 9th – 13th for children ages 7 – 12. Camp activities include: Combat challenge, CPR/First Aid, weather preparedness, fire prevention, Fire Safety Trailer, using fire hose, watching live fire and
scenarios, water day and many other activities.
Short periods of lectures and lessons followed by hands on exercises
will help reinforce lessons learned. The Fire and Life Safety Camp is intended
to be a learning experience for the children but also a fun and challenging way
to learn about safety.
Attendees will be grouped into teams and will operate as a “fire or rescue company” for each day’s activities. Children are taught teamwork and leadership skills throughout the camp which they can use in everyday situations.
Last year we had approximately 60 children in attendance and held 2 camps. This year there will only be one camp from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., free for Residents, $30 for Non-Residents. Registration deadline is June 29th, but once the camp is full, registration will be closed sooner. All campers will receive a T-shirt, educational materials to supplement the learning sessions, graduation certificate, water and a snack each day.
