Have you ever wondered about the physical and mental requirements needed to serve your community as a first responder? Receive hands-on training and instruction from the women and men within the ranks of law enforcement, fire suppression, and emergency medicine who will help you experience first-hand what it takes to pursue these types of careers.

CampHERO will inspire you to be courageous, confident, and build character, all while preparing you for a future career as a first responder. The program is safe, hands on, and geared for teens interested in career exploration. When you successfully complete the class you will receive a certificate from MATC recognizing your accomplishment. MATC will also keep a record of your participation.

Your week will be jampacked with activities from all three career fields:

• Crime scene analysis

• Fire suppression

• CPR instruction

• 911 dispatch communication

• Self-defense instruction

• Vehicle extrication (jaws of life)

• Criminal investigation

• Search and rescue

• Fire and Police Academy tour

• And more!

In the evenings, trade in those computers for campfires and bonding time with your friends at Girl Scout camp. All of the fun you have develops your leadership skills, increases your independence, and connects you with nature as you adventure in the great outdoors.

CampHERO is made possible by Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast, Milwaukee Fire Department, Milwaukee Police Department, Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission, and Milwaukee Area Technical College.
