From putting out fires to repelling down a five story building, kids at Roseville’s Fire Camp are doing it all.
For six days, the kids are immersed in an intense program that allows them to see first hand what it takes to be a firefighter.
“Last year I decided I wanted to be a firefighter. You can not have this experience anywhere else,” camp attendant Bethany Brooding said. “You are doing all of this fun stuff, but still learning a lot.”
Firefighters with the Roseville Fire Department have been conducting the camp year after year and all of the volunteer their time.
“We do it because we love what we do and we want kids to grow up and be firefighters. This is the best way to let them experience what we do,” camp coordinator Joe Lapenna said.
The camp accepts kids between the ages of 11 and 14.
