Welcome to Paramedic Camp (Half - Up to First Responder certifciation), an immersive and empowering experience designed exclusively for young individuals between the ages of 13 and 17. Over the course of three action-packed weeks, participants will embark on a transformative journey of learning and personal growth in the field of emergency medical care.
At Paramedic Camp, our primary focus is to equip young minds with the essential skills and knowledge needed to make a difference in emergency situations. The camp kicks off with a comprehensive Standard First Aid and CPR Level C course, ensuring that all participants have a solid foundation in basic lifesaving techniques. From there, the program is structured to progressively enhance their skills, confidence, and understanding of emergency medical procedures.
This camp includes:
Our experienced instructor(s) will foster a supportive and engaging learning environment, encouraging participants to actively participate and develop their skills. Through a combination of hands-on training, interactive workshops, and engaging simulations, campers will gain a deep understanding of various medical emergencies and learn how to effectively respond to them.
Throughout the camp, participants will have the opportunity to explore a wide range of topics, including CPR, wound care, splinting, patient assessment, and much more. As they progress, those who demonstrate proficiency and dedication may even have the chance to pursue additional certifications. By the end of the two weeks, successful participants can proudly earn a First Responder certificate, solidifying their commitment to saving lives and their readiness to handle emergencies.
Paramedic Camp is not just about learning medical skills, it's also about fostering teamwork, leadership and personal growth. Participants will engage in team-building exercises, develop effective communication skills, and learn how to remain calm under pressure. Friendships will be formed, memories will be made, and invaluable life lessons will be learned, shaping the campers into confident and compassionate individuals.
