During this resident camp, Girl Scouts train alongside female firefighters and law enforcement personnel to learn firefighting and EMS skills, practice defensive tactics, perform physical fitness drills and develop investigative abilities. They are mentored by remarkable women who are breaking down barriers and stereotypes in what has traditionally been male-dominated fields.
Throughout this intense program, girls grow even more courageous, strong, confident and capable, ready to become our change-makers for tomorrow and role models for their fellow Girl Scouts.
This camp is a physically challenging immersive experience. Girls will be encouraged to challenge themselves to take risks and complete numerous tasks which are both physically and mentally taxing. This sometimes involves pushing past fears and overcoming mental blocks. If you have any questions about the physical challenges, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
This program is open for Girl Scouts entering 10th grade through 12th grades. No exceptions will be made.
Due to the COVID 19 Pandemic and our fire and police staff being on the front lines, we will not be able to host Camp Fury this summer. Our plan is to launch Camp Fury Kansas City in Summer 2021
