Semester Youth Program has started
Comox Fire Rescue manages two different Firefighter Youth Programs (Firefighter Youth Camp and Firefighter Youth Semester Program). The Youth Semester Program is run twice each year for Comox Valley high school students. The goal of this camp is to provide significant learning and life experience and provide skills and attitudes that can be applied now and later in life.
Chief Schreiner states: “We are so pleased to have the opportunity to work closely with many of the great youths in our community. These programs require a huge commitment by our outstanding group of firefighters. Without their assistance this would not be possible. We are also very fortunate to have great community support from many local businesses.”
Last night kicked off the first evening with 19 students from 3 local high schools attending.
