The Newport Beach Fire Department has opened registration for Junior Firefighter Camp, with two one-week sessions offered in August.
The camps run Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to noon in Mariners Park. The first session will begin Aug. 13 and the second on Aug. 20. Camps are limited to 25 participants, so early enrollment is encouraged. Camps are designed for children between 9 and 13 years old.
“The camp will be taught by our very own Newport Beach Firefighters and will introduce the participants to the firefighting profession,” said Jennifer Schulz, a Newport Beach Fire Department spokeswoman, in an email. Participants will learn about basic first aid, fire safety and firefighting tools and skills.
The camp costs $125 for one week.
To register, visit the city’s website. The camp’s registration number is CE6011 CE6012.
