Camp Fury Chesapeake

Camp Fury Chesapeake Camp Fury Chesapeake provides realistic firefighting, police, and emergency services activities and leadership training for girls in a 5 day camp setting.
(10)

The Chesapeake Fire Department, the Chesapeake Police Department, Norfolk Fire Rescue, and the Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast have collaborated to provide realistic firefighting and emergency services activities and training for girls at the first annual Camp Fury Chesapeake. This exciting program features a five-day camp for teen girls entering grades 6-12 that highlight team building activities and feature guest speakers from non-traditional professions. This camp experience began in Tucson in 2009 and was successfully brought over to Hampton, VA two years ago. At Camp Fury Chesapeake, women firefighters, EMS providers, and police officers from across Hampton Roads will provide daily skill-building sessions and career information to participants outfitted in uniforms, turn-out gear, helmets and gloves. Activities will be held at various fire and police facilities throughout the City of Chesapeake.

Meetings and conversations have occurred this week regarding Camp Fury Chesapeake 2021 and what it would look like this year. Unfortunately, COVID has impacted the lives of everyone and continues to do so this year. Just like all of you, I was hoping to make this a banner year for CFC 2021, but the risk is too great, and our campers deserve so much more. It has been my recommendation to work on making CFC 2022 "The Best One Yet!" Summer 2022 is looking like the majority of our population will be vaccinated and our community will be safer and healthier for it. With all that being said, Camp Fury Chesapeake 2021 is cancelled with hopes of a GREAT return in the Summer of 2022.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. We are one more holiday closer to Camp Fury Chesapeake 2021!!!!

As you all know we should be ramping up for another AMAZING year of Camp Fury Chesapeake 2020, but this pandemic put the brakes on. As much as we'd love to see you all this year, we all have to practice social distancing not only for ourselves, but for others. I assure you we are working on Camp Fury Chesapeake 2021 and hope to see you all there!!!

Everyone knows someone whose energy is contagious and spreads like wildfire. One of those individuals happens to work at Firehouse 7, Probationary Firefighter Donna Dzieman. Firefighter Dzieman recently organized a food drive to give back to the community and particularly those who are suffering from the pandemic. Firefighter Dzieman dropped off the first round of donations yesterday at a local church food bank. We want to commend Donna on taking steps to make a positive change in the community of Chesapeake. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฅ‡๐Ÿš’

Girl Scout Council of Colonial Coast

Camp Fury Chesapeake is officially cancelled for August 2020. Please see the information below about the alternatives the GSCCC will be offering for your campers this summer.

It is with tremendous, heartfelt disappointment that Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast is announcing the cancellation of resident and day camps for summer 2020. This difficult decision was made because the health and safety of our girls and staff are top priorities for us. We know how much our girls look forward to their summer camp experiences that bring them memories for a lifetime. We want every girl to have the opportunity to create her own outdoor adventure and develop a lifelong appreciation of nature and the outdoors, whether with her troop, at camp, or with friends and family.

Know that GSCCC is focusing on developing exceptional outdoor programming that will be ready for our girls after this pandemic ends. You may request a refund or choose an exciting option we have created, U-Pick: Summer Adventure with GSCCC. If you have already made payment for camp and you choose U-Pick: Summer Adventure with GSCCC, your payment will be applied. U-Pick: Summer Adventures with GSCCC gives girls an opportunity to make memories with friends and build new skills, while choosing from a variety of options that will fit into any schedule - and allow them to complete badge components! Girls may participate on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, or Tuesday and Thursday. We will be posting full details and a FAQ tomorrow on our website!

Navy Region Mid-Atlantic FF/PM Laura Arrington and FF/EMT Samantha McCaffity received recognition this evening for playing a major roll in the success of not only #campfurynorfolk but all 3 Hampton Roads #CampFury camps throughout our 2019 season. Because of their commitment and passion, campers were able to experience aviation firefighting as well as meet multiple female naval pilots and air crew. These two are an excellent example of the #sisterhood #wearefury #strengthinsisterhood #strongwomen #norfolkfirerescue #courageconfidencecharacter

Hereโ€™s the CFC 2019 video! This video highlights some of the activities and events the campers participated in over the first four days of CFC 2019. The hard work and dedication required of all the volunteers necessary to make all this happen for the campers safely (with every moment photographed lol) canโ€™t be overstated. You all rock!

Fantastic Day 1 for Camp Fury Chesapeake. We learned about SCBA's and PPE, did each station of the CPAT (some campers voluntarily did them more than once), and learned about tools and how to tie knots. There was also PT, getting to know each other, and a little bit of dancing :) Can't wait for day 2!
