Applications are now available from the Claremont Career Centre for this year's Camp Ignite Mentorship Program with the Saanich Fire Department

Open to girls in grades 11 & 12Camp Ignite is a 4-day camp that introduces them to the world of firefighting. Each girl will learn about fitness, nutrition, health and teamwork.

The camp is organized and run by fire fighters from several municipalities throughout the Greater Victoria, Vancouver and Fraser Valley areas assisted by several women fire fighters so there are no costs and no barriers to participate.

Girls will be introduced to firefighting skills as well as participate in teambuilding activities, and they will also receive a CPR level A certificate.

This year’s camp will run from August 11 to August 14, 2017, and we are aiming to sponsor one high school aged girl from Saanich to take part in Camp Ignite for 2017.

The deadline for applications is June 1, 2017. More information about Camp Ignite can be found at
