Cadet camp returns this year and will take place on Wednesday, March 27 and Thursday, March 28. Youth between the ages of ten and 14 are welcome to take part in a fun filled two days of cutting apart cars, discharging hose lines, learning first aid skills, discovering ways to escape a burning house, and putting out real fires with fire extinguishers.
Running from 10:30-3:30, the program has something different each day. The cadets and their families are invited to the firehall on the Thursday evening for a dessert potluck where the cadets can show off their new skills and take part in the award ceremony.
The cost is free and we serve lunch for both days. For more information and to register, check out www.hifd.org, call the fire hall at 250.335.2611, or register online. Pre-registration is essential for us to know how many lunches to prepare and because we have to limit the size to a maximum of 20 participants.
