I am a Female instructor for the California Cadet Academy located in Napa County, CA. We are trying to get the word out to all Fire Explorer Posts in California. We offer a one-week specialized Academy for kids age 13-18 who are interested in Firefighting, Law Enforcement, and Emergency Medical Services.

Our Program is designed to motivate an interest in education and develop vocational skills as a guide to the future. The Academy is a paramilitary environment with a high level of discipline. Cadets wear uniforms, follow a strict Code of Conduct and become part of a team.

We are located in the Napa Valley and use the facilities of a local college campus. The camps are one week in duration held during the months of June, July and August.

The Academy instructors are currently employed and/or retired firefighters, police officers and emergency medical technicians. The instructors and staff are dedicated to mentoring the cadets and guiding them towards a successful future.

We hold a fundraiser every year to help pay the way for kids from your community to attend the camp. Many students who attend are inner-city youth and come from low-income households who are unable to pay the full tuition.

If you would like to sponsor a Cadet please contact me for more information.

Thank you!
