The Girl Scout Council of the Colonial Coast, in partnership with Hampton Division of Fire & Rescue, will host Camp Fury this summer from July 20 through July 25, 2014.

Changes to this year’s program include making it a resident camp. Girls will spend the week at Camp Skimino, a 90 acre wooded area near Williamsburg, Virginia. Each day for the duration of the camp, they will travel to Hampton Fire & Rescue for class. Registration for the camp, open to girls in grades 6 through 12, is $375. Financial assistance is available.

The goal of the camp is to build teamwork, self-confidence, and respect while learning about the fire department. Girls will have the opportunity to experience firefighting and emergency operations techniques, and connect with women currently in the profession. Participants will earn the Girl Scout Safety Award.

Camp registration and additional information is available online at www.gsccc.org. Follow the eBiz link, and then the activities link to Camp Skimino Resident Camp - Week 5. If you have questions, contact Medic Firefighter Jami Salvio jssalvio@hampton.gov, or 757-547-4405.
