EMS Summer Camp

EMS Summer Camp logo

Wake County EMS Summer Camp is a 5-day program for ages 15–19 years old, which is held 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at our EMS Training Center. 

Do you know someone considering EMS as a career or simply interested in exploring more about what EMS is all about? This is the perfect opportunity. 

Make no mistake, this is about hands-on summer activity that teaches many components of the EMS system and what it's like to take care of people as a paramedic or EMT. 

Now, we want to point out that there are no certifications issued, because we want to focus on the activities rather than sitting in lecture. Our goals are to show you what it's like to work in EMS and how to begin working toward the training and education for a career in EMS. 

We'll teach a number of EMS skills, and we'll learn about all the vehicles and equipment in the EMS System. Standard Covid safety rules will be in place including use of masks and social distancing at all times. We will not be able to take field trips or perform field ride time this year, but look for that to return in 2022.

What Is Advanced Camp?

Advanced Camp builds on previous camp experience and goes into greater detail on EMS clinical care. It also includes more advanced real-life patient care scenarios. Basic Camp is a prerequisite for Advanced Camp. 

There are no fees.
