Overarching Goal: To address the current gender imbalance within the firefighting profession by promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion.
MissionStatement: The mission of Camp Cinder is to provide an empowering camp experience for young women where they can learn job specific skills and attain the confidence to be successful in a future firefighting career.
How It Works: Camp Cinder is a five-day four-night camp for young women ages 16 to 18. The camp is led by CAL FIRE female firefighters and free to all participants. Campers will experience what it means to have a career in the fire service through hands on wildland and structural firefighting, rescue and helicopter operations, team building, and much more.
