Junior Fire Academy

Junior Fire Academy day camp is a chance for children to learn about some of the daily operations of the San Marcos Fire Department, and have some fun in the process.   

The program is open to boys and girls, ages 8 - 11.  It gives children an opportunity to interact with San Marcos firefighters and make friends with positive role models.  The mission of the day camp is to instill camaraderie, servant-leadership, teamwork, self-confidence, and citizenship.

Children are introduced to the different facets of firefighting and the equipment used in daily operations by members of the fire department.  All campers receive a t-shirt, lunch, and snacks free of charge.

Dates for summer 2019
1st Session: June 17 - 21, 2019

The San Marcos Fire Department would like to extend our gratitude to State Farm Insurance that awarded us a grant to make the summer camp possible.
