Developed under a youth engagement concept, this six-day, five-night camp, hosted and staffed by camp employees, contract staff, and FEMA personnel will teach students how to safely assist in the immediate aftermath of a disaster when the professional response may be delayed or limited. Subject matter experts and local emergency responders will support the curriculum delivery and introduce campers to various emergency response professions. As part of the camp program, youth participants will identify, develop, and present a concept for a give-back project where they will utilize their skills to improve preparedness in their communities.
