A new camp for young women and girls who are interested in becoming first responders, has been launched in Calgary..

From July 4 to July 10, 2022, 24 girls and young women aged 15 to 18, will be attending the seven-day camp. Participants of Camp Courage will learn from inspiring guest speakers, fitness professionals and women who are currently serving as first responders, on how they too can become a first responder and fulfill their dreams.

Camp Courage sessions will offer basic skills and knowledge to help participants learn more about what life is like as a first responder, and provide connections to current police officers, firefighters and paramedics.

Applications will be accepted until May 15th. Instead of a fee, organizers ask the interested candidates to detail how they can positively contribute to their community or make a positive impact on an individual in their community upon completion of the camp.
