WILD SKILLS Junior Wildland Firefighter: Hood River

Join us for Wild Skills Junior Wildland Firefighter presented by Clif Bar, a day camp at Wyeth Campground on Saturday, June 8. Thanks to a partnership with the United States Forest Service and United States Department of Agriculture, young girls will learn fire safety and outdoor skills while working with the strong women & men of the firefighting community. They will learn, participate and create, plus all will receive a Wild Skills journal for joining in the fun. This event is intended for ages 6-12 girls (transgender and cisgender) as well as non-binary people who identify with the women’s community. This SheJumps' Wild Skills event is structured as full day camp experience, parents/legal guardians drop girls off, they are split into teams based on their age and then rotate through different stations.

Throughout the day, girls are taught a range of outdoor skills that are utilized by firefighters to keep the forests safe. Girls will work alongside female firefighters and volunteers to learn more about the many facets of fire safety, first aid, line construction, weather, communication and navigation. We will provide 1 to 2 female mentorship engaging all generations in the sharing of knowledge and understanding. Connecting experience, energy and love for our natural places with the technical and survival skills girls need to get out and adventure.
