Camp Courage is an empowering, life changing, award winning, one of a kind, free camp for young women. It is a registered charity that introduces women aged 15-19 to careers as first responders. Camp Courage provides information, inspiration and education, as well as, opportunities to experience the physical demands placed on a police officer, firefighter and paramedic. The ultimate goal is that the young women leave with a sense of empowerment and increased confidence to believe that they can achieve any goal, career or dream that they desire.
The camp is 100% free. The selection process includes writing an essay on how to improve someone else’s life that is less fortunate or on how to improve their community. Instead of paying cash, the young lady must do what she described in her essay.
