Calgary Fire Summer Camps

Bucket Brigade is a four-day camp sponsored by ATCO. It gives youth, ages 14 to 18, a chance to learn about life as a firefighter. It also gives them a taste of our Fire Cadet program.

Campers will learn a variety of firefighter skills. They will learn how to:

  • wear and operate a self-contained breathing apparatus,
  • search a confined maze,
  • hook up a hydrant and handle a hose,
  • and much more!
