Camp Fury for Girls
Earn the Girl Scout Safety Award & CPR Certification
This hands-on resident camp allows girls in grades 7 through 12 to participate in a variety of activities which build leadership, self-confidence, and respect through teamwork. The camp, presented by the Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast, in partnership with Hampton Fire & Rescue gives girls the opportunity to experience firefighting and emergency operations techniques, and connect with women currently in the profession, as well as those in other male-dominated fields. Participants will earn the Girl Scout Safety Award and CPR certification. Registration is now open for the July 16-21, 2017 camp.
Resident and Day Camp Options
Again this year girls will have the option of staying at Camp Skimino, located on 90 wooded acres near Williamsburg, where they will get the true camping experience - swimming, canoeing, and s'mores by the camp fire, or being dropped off and picked up at the fire station. During the day they'll enjoy learning to tie knots, carry ladders, don fire gear, and even run a Bucket Brigade!
Registration Now Open

Camp Prospect for Boys
Male Youth Ages 14 to 19
Camp Prospect, Hampton Fire & Rescue's camp for teen boys, seeks to address some of the needs of at-risk male youths with a two-pronged approach; mentoring, and an actual week-long camp which will be held July 23-29, 2017.
Making young men aware of local resources, many of which they may not be aware, and of how positive choices can bring desired outcomes; hope for a bright future. Teens between the ages of 14 and 19 will participate in the mentoring portion of the program, and up to 12 teens will be able to participate in the camp. During the week-long camp, youths will have an opportunity to experience the day to day activities of firefighters and explore the world of firefighting from the inside.
Participating in the program will be non-violent male youths who are less likely to transition successfully into adulthood and achieve economic self-sufficiency; or those who require temporary intervention in order to succeed.
Allowing students to participate in Camp Prospect provides them with another tool with which to aide in crafting their own successes. Activities are not limited to the fire service; participants will share in team building and individual achievement exercises, as well as be exposed to local business and other city operations through day trips. Both prongs of the program will utilize city resources and volunteers. The Camp is being co-sponsored by Hampton Volunteer Fire Companies.
