This camp will take place March 6-8 at the National Responder Preparedness Center in Greenville and will focus on fire control operations. There is no charge associated with this camp and meals and lodging are provided. Campers are responsible for their own transportation to and from camp. Registration will run Jan. 6-Feb. 14.

Camp is open to any junior ages 15-17 on the roster of a program recognized by the Kentucky Fire Commission. If your program is not recognized by the Fire Commission (or contact information needs to be updated), and you wish to register participants, please complete all paperwork that is found on our website’s junior program page and submit Attachment #1 (Notification Form) to the Fire Commission office.

Ensure the registration form is filled out in full, legible, and that an email address is included, as this is how future communications will be handled. All signatures, including the Chief’s, must be present for the form to be accepted. The form is set up with fillable fields if you wish to type in the information; you will still have to print it out to indicate shirt size and for all signatures. Note that training will be conducted at the Wendell H. Ford Regional Training Center. It is a requirement of the installation that participants submit the last 4 digits of their social security number to access select training areas which will be utilized during junior camp.

We realize that some departments allow 18 year old high school students to remain in their junior program until graduation. However, the Fire Commission only recognizes juniors ages 15-17, and therefore, participants must not have attained their 18th birthday prior to the start of camp.

All campers must have NFPA compliant gear (with a manufacture date no later than March 6, 2010), an SCBA with a current hydro date, and facial hair that does not impede mask seal. Gear will be checked prior to participation in hands-on training.

Welcome packets will be sent via postal mail two weeks prior to camp, and will contain further information, a packing list, and additional forms to be completed and brought to camp.

Once the camp has reached capacity, a waiting list will be formed. Check the Fire Commission website and the Junior Program Facebook page (@kyjrffprogram) for registration updates.

If you have any questions, please contact Ericka Cole (ericka.cole@kctcs.edu).

We look forward to another great session at camp!
