In coalition with the Ashland Fire Department and the Ashland Board of Selectmen, Camp Bailout Summer Program will be held, for the eighth consecutive year, July 16-20, 2018.

Camp Bailout is a week long program designed to educate young women on firefighting and emergency service skills, in a dynamic and fun environment. The week long curriculum is interactive and physically challenging, where the girls will gain strength and knowledge while building confidence and leadership skills.

During the week, the girls will be taught basic skills in: Rappelling from the training tower; motor vehicle extrication with the Jaws of Life, search and rescue, CPR, first aid, live fire extinguishment and much, much more.

Campers should possess a positive attitude, be in good physical conditioning and be prepared to have fun!
