The Mission


The Clay Fire Summer Camp is an excellent opportunity that allows children to experience and understand what a Firefighter / EMT does on a regular basis.  This program is targeted for children aged 10 – 13 years of age and the activities will be directed accordingly.  Campers will actually participate “hands on” with equipment and have the opportunity to learn skills while performing at mock fire and rescue situations. It is the mission of our instructors to inspire the participants and to teach them team building and valuable life saving skills while having fun.

Parent or Guardian:


The Clay Fire Summer Camp is a 5-day, local camp dedicated to introducing local children to what it is like to be a Firefighter with the Clay Fire Territory. Fire Camp is a great opportunity for firefighters to help kids build a sense of teamwork and responsibility.

Fire Camp is June 18-22, 2018

Camp will begin each morning at 9 AM at the Clay Fire Station #25 on the corner of Anderson & Bittersweet Roads in Granger. Camp hours are from 9 AM – 3 PM. Registration is limited to 30 applications, so apply as soon as you can. Applicants will be issued a spot upon receipt of their application.

Priority will be given to all new campers first.  If you attend in 2017, you will be placed on a waiting list.  If your child is selected to attend, we will be holding a mandatory orientation meeting on Wednesday, June 13, 2018 at 6:30 PM at Clay Fire Territory Station #25 on Anderson Road. In order for your child to attend this camp, you must attend this meeting or contact the Chief’s office by this date.
