Each year Camp Fully Involve strives to reach as many young women who are interested in the fire service as possible. Through our generous sponsorships and supportive organizations, we continue to offer this aggressive hands-on training at a very low cost. In this struggling economy we understand that programs like this can become cost-prohibitive for potential program candidates. We have been working very hard to establish a scholarship program through various avenues. We are now pleased to present them here to you.
