Reaching Explorers for Summer Camp
I am an instructor for the California Cadet Academy in California. We are trying to expand our program. The Academy is open to any youth aged 14-18 and are interested in any of the following: Firefighting, Law Enforcement, and Emergency Medical Services.
The CCA is a non-profit 501(c)(3) Public Benefit Educational Corporation. The organization was established to provide high school aged students the opportunity to experience what it would be like to become a Firefighter, Law Enforcement Officer or Emergency Medical Technician.
In recent years, several school boards throughout the country have reduced and/or eliminated high school vocational training programs that were traditionally offered as an alternative to college.
The CCA strives to promote an emphasis in education as well as provide basic vocational training. The program is designed to give the students who attend a head start when applying to college and/or attending certification programs to become Firefighters, Police officers, Deputy Sheriffs, Park Rangers, Paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians.
Our program is intended to mentor the students and assist them in evaluating their options for the future. We stress higher education and devote approximately 50% of camp time in the classroom. Our goal is to expose the students to the many facets of a public service career in a controlled, safe, and fun setting.
If you would like more information please contact me on here. Thank You so much!

I am the Senior Advisor/Instructor for San Jose Fire Department Explorers. We have, currently, 52 Explorers ages 14-22. I would be interested in seeing what your summer camp has to offer for our young people. We are an extremely progressive and hands-on oriented program. We enjoy the unwavering support of San Jose Fire Department, Boy Scouts of America, and the City of San Jose. Feel free to email me any information you have regarding your summer program.
