Update 6/30/17

Registration has closed for junior high students as part of our Emergency Services Youth Summer Camps, but registration remains open and active for high school students. 

We had an overwhelming response, and wish we had more space for even more Junior High students. But, due to logistics, we are closing Junior High registration early and limiting it to the 50 students currently enrolled.

We want to thank the community and our partners for their interest and support.

The Senior High Camp is still accepting registration. Deadline to register is Friday, July 7.

Forms can be downloaded at icgov.org/emergencyservicescamps or picked-up at any Iowa City Fire Station, the Police Station, 410 E. Washington St., or at Johnson County Ambulance Service, 808 S. Dubuque St. They can be returned via email to Brandon-Smith@iowa-city.org or delivered/mailed to Fire Station No. 1,  410 E. Washington St., Iowa City.

Those with questions can contact Lt. Brandon Smith at Brandon-Smith@iowa-city.org or firefighter Sadie McDowell at Sadie-McDowell@iowa-city.org. Both are available by calling 319-356-5261.

Students grades 6-12 are invited to join Iowa City firefighters, police and Johnson County Ambulance Service for a hands-on, summer fun experience!

The Emergency Services Youth Summer Camps are free for participants, and expose kids to the work emergency responders do to keep our community safe. Kids will be able to practice fire skills, like ladders and hoses, emergency response tactics, like CPR and first aid, and work with police resources, like the K9 unit and bomb squad. The camp is also designed to help participants develop leadership, decision-making and self-confidence skills.  

Camps are divided into two age groups, and will meet at Fire Station No. 4, 2008 N. Dubuque Road, Iowa City.
