Basic Fire Science Camp

For young men and women, ages 15-20, with any level of experience or knowledge in the fire and emergency response field.

Advanced Fire Science Camp

For young men and women, ages 15-20, who have already attended a Basic or GO! Fire Science Camp or who currently serve or have served as a fire department intern or belong to a fire science explorer program (with adviser/chief's signature).

Explore a career in fire and emergency response!

The Fire Science Career Exploration Program is a residential camp experience that provides young men and women with opportunities to explore careers in fire and emergency response services.

Through a combination of instruction and hands-on application, campers will participate in a variety of activities that present a  realistic view of fire service careers; be challenged with problem-solving, team building and leadership development activities; explore college life; and get career and resumé planning assistance.

The camps are held on the UW Oshkosh campus with off-campus field experiences at the Appleton Fire Department, Grand Chute Department, Fox Valley Technical College Regional Fire Training Center and Oshkosh Fire Department.
