Dear Applicant,

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, teambuilding skills, and become an advocate for safety and the El Paso Fire Department.

The Summer Youth Camp is limited to 20 students between the ages of 13-17 who will be selected based on the attached application. 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 Monday, July 15, 2013. 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. or faxed to (915) 775-7312.

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 July 23rd – 25th 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 George De La Torre at (915) 485-5665 if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,
Training Chief Rafael Reyes
El Paso Fire Department
