Denver Kids Learn Teamwork, Confidence, and Leadership in DFD Youth Career Exploration Camp

Marta De Leon

Denver, CO — July 28, 2021, was the first day of Youth Career Exploration Camp held by Denver Fire Department. This program provides exciting activities and mentorship for interested youth that are looking to discover their future.

Kids got the opportunity to learn, experience, and recognize the possibilities of a future career as Denver's firefighters. They experienced what it feels like to be a firefighter firsthand by training with emergency equipment skills while performing simulated fire and rescue systems guided by Denver firefighters.

"The kids showed us they are strong, learned teamwork is essential, empowered each other to keep going but mostly that it's important to have fun!" as stated in the twitter account @Denver_Fire

After signing up and confirmed that the kids can participate, parent or guardian attended a mandatory orientation meeting 2 weeks before the first day of the training sessions start. The 3-seven-hour sessions camp is free and begins each morning at 9 a.m. at the Rocky Mountain Fire Academy (5440 Roslyn Building F, Denver, CO 80216) and ends around 4 p.m . at the same place. The requirement for kids to join is at least 4th through 12th grade. Kids learn valuable life lessons, along with emergency skills such as first-aid and CPR and other fire fighting skills, for three days together with the Denver firefighter.

"Out hope is to inspire these participants to consider working as a Denver Firefighter after their high school and college careers" stated by DFD on

Having fun seems to be the most important thing for kids to experience in order to consider the possibility of a future career as a firefighter and the documentary certainly proves that the camp has achieved this.
