The Beverly Hills Fire Department (BHFD) has announced that its first-ever Girls’ Empowerment Camp will take place on Nov. 5 and 6. The camp is open to young women in grades 9-12 and will provide the opportunity to see firsthand what it takes to be a firefighter. It will feature hands-on exercises, drills and training. 

“This incredible camp, put on by our amazing Beverly Hills Fire Department is exactly what is needed to show girls across our community and beyond that they can do anything and be anything they want to be,” said Beverly Hills Mayor Lili Bosse. “We want them to feel inspired, confident and be ready to be our next generation of firefighters!”

The camp will be held in person at the Beverly Hills Fire Department at 445 N. Rexford Drive.

“We want to invite curious minds to explore this field where women are underrepresented,” said Melissa Hills, BHFD Fire Engineer. “Hopefully, after spending time at our camp, we will inspire girls to join the ranks of the Beverly Hills Fire Department in the years ahead.”

Registration for residents is $50 and officially opens Oct. 7. Non-resident registration is $63, and opens Oct. 14. Registration will remain open until camp is filled. To register, visit beverlyhills.org/bhrec.
