Summer Youth Camp 2018

Thank you for expressing interest in the El Paso Fire Department’s Summer Youth Camp.

We are excited to offer this unique opportunity for local youth to gain an understanding
of fire and life safety issues while developing valuable skills used in search and rescue
operations, team building skills, and become an advocate for safety and the El Paso Fire
Department.

The Summer Youth Camp is limited to 15 students between the ages of 13-17 who will
be selected based on the attached application. Preference will be given to those who
have not attended the camp previously. Campers will be chosen on the basis of their
suitability for Summer Youth Camp, as will be determined by the enclosed application.
The final deadline to submit applications is Friday, June 15, 2018. Applications should
be submitted to the Training Academy located at 6800 Delta Dr. inside Ascarate Park
Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Learning at the Summer Youth Camp is highly interactive and hands-on in nature. Most
activities are conducted in pairs or teams, in which the campers must work together and
rely on each other to succeed. The nature of the activities and the locations where they
are conducted require campers to follow explicit rules in order to ensure everyone’s
safety. Campers should wear comfortable clothing, sunscreen and closed toed shoes, NO
sandals.

Summer Youth Camp activities will be held at the El Paso Fire Department’s Training
Academy located at 6800 Delta Drive. The Summer Youth Camp will run from 8 a.m. to
1 p.m. on June 26-28 and is FREE to all eligible participants. Meals ARE NOT provided
so each person will be required to provide a sack lunch each day.
We are pleased you want to support your child’s interest in life safety through this
unique, fun, educational and hands-on program!

Please contact Public Information Officer, Enrique D. Aguilar, at (915) 317-8943 if you
have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Kevin Mende
Training Chief
