Stephenville - August 6-10, 2012
Camp GLOW is a Fire Camp for women age 17 years and older. It is an amazing opportunity to learn about the fire service and to have fun. Women will develop the confidence and leadership skills to pursue their dreams or to explore a possible career change. Teamwork, problem solving, physical exercise and firefighter training is the intent of the camp. Women will leave the camp knowing they can do absolutely anything.
Camp GLOW will empower and build confidence in women through personal experiences in team-building and physical ability, to increase self-sufficiency, not only as women but also as potential future firefighters. The weeklong fire camp will be strenuous, demanding and exciting series of activities; many of them modeled on what real firefighters go through during training. Women will have a chance to use real firefighting equipment under the supervision of active female firefighters. Exercises, classes and activities include introduction to the firefighter's personal protective equipment, use of tools and ladders, search and rescue, and live fire training.
