    Default Summer Camps

    Does anyone know of any good firefighting summer camps for boys? I did a web search and was unable to find anything. Any help would be great thanks.

    I agree with Tony. The Ohio Youth Fire and EMS Training Academy is great for any explorers or cadets. It's held at Hocking College in Southeast Ohio. I attended for a few years before I actually started fire school here. It's an amazing place with great instructors and a wonderful facility. Check it out please! www.ohioyouthfire.org
