SMFD Junior Fire Academy

We’re inviting children ages 8 to 11 to join the San Marcos Junior Fire Academy this summer! At the Junior Academy day camp, children will develop skills in leadership, teamwork, self-esteem, citizenship, friendship, and service. In each session, campers will be issued personal protective equipment, participate in safety discussions, engage in hands-on-training for CPR, Search and Rescue, Forcible Entry, Rope training, Extrication, etc.


The campers will also have a homework assignment over the course of the week to establish safe evacuation routes for their own homes! All campers will receive a t-shirt, lunch, and snacks, all free of charge. 

Session 1 begins June 19 and ends June 23. Session 2 begins July 10 and ends July 14. Classes are between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. each day. 

Registration is open until Friday, May 25. Once spots fill up, a waitlist will begin. JFA is open to kids who have completed 3rd, 4th, or 5th grades by summer, no exceptions.
