Please have your student dress in comfortable school-appropriate clothing, and sturdy shoes (no flip-flops or open-toed shoes). Some of our activities will be outside involving running, and we want to ensure the proper footwear is worn. Cadets not wearing appropriate footwear may be unable to participate in certain activities for safety reasons.
Meals will not be provided; however, there will be a small snack and drink provided daily.
Students will need to be at the Schertz Fire Department between 8:00 a.m. and 8:15 a.m. each day. Parents will be required to sign their student in each day for the 5th and 6th-grade students only. Pick-up will be from Noon to 12:15, and the parents will be required to come in and sign the students out. Students will only be released to adults listed on the registration form.
On the last day of camp (Friday), there will be a small “graduation ceremony” where the cadets will be presented with a certificate of completion. The parents are encouraged to attend the ceremony. Cake will be served following the ceremony.
