Youth Firefighter Camp Update from Kara Shuler 02/01/2021

Youth Firefighter Camp Update from Kara Shuler 1/12/2021

It's time! We are very excited to be able to send this note to you because it means we are tentatively scheduling the 2021 Limerick Fire Department Youth Firefighter Camp for your kiddos!  Due to the fluid situation of restrictions and safety precautions in place by the State & County, we are asking for your patience as we negotiate the State and County regulations BUT hope they will be relaxed by the time June approaches; enough for us to gather and have a place for the kids to come and have some educational fun.

Our schedule will follow the ending of Spring-Ford School District school calendar. That being said, we have calendared our camp to run: June 21 through June 25, 2021Drop off at 8:45 a.m. & pick up at 12:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.  Having these dates/times established helps our volunteer firefighters and contributing member volunteers with planning their vacation or personal time from their jobs in order to have the camp. In case you weren’t aware, Limerick Fire Department does not have any paid staff. We must count on volunteerism and community service as our labor of love.  Also, the Youth Firefighter Camp is not considered a fundraiser for the Department; it is 100% an outreach to our surrounding communities to share our passion for community service, to educate personal safety in a fun environment, and to plant that seed in our youth that no matter how small the give-back to their community may be, it has a huge impact on so many lives.

As promised when we had to cancel 2020 Camp, we kept the registrations that wanted to stay enrolled and are moving them forward to the 2021 Camp Registrations. With the cadet groups separated by age and everyone advancing a year, it will take me a minute to re-calibrate the groups by birth dates. That being said, I have asked for the current registrants to email me with their intention to stay enrolled or to opt out with a response by Sat. 1/15/2021. I will solidify the groups and send an email to each cadet group when they are established.  While the request for new attendees is welcome, we cannot promise we can accommodate until the 2020 attendees confirm their intentions and we see the final attendee numbers by age group.

As we navigate through Springtime, we will have a better understanding as to what regulations may be in place as we approach summer.  We will share all required safety precautions as they are dictated by the State & County.  We have absolutely no reservation in refunding your registration fees, at any point & time, if you feel it wouldn’t be an ideal environment for your kids. We appreciate your concerns and will work with you.

Thank you for your patience. We will work together to get this done for our kids.

Thank you for your support,

Kara Shuler
Limerick Fire Dept.

 

Youth Firefighter Camp Update from Chief Shuler 5/7/2020

Hello Future Firefighter Families,

We hope this finds you all healthy and safe,

As a follow up to our last email, the Committee met and regretfully has decided to cancel the Youth Firefighter Camp for 2020.  This was a very hard decision on one hand due to the enjoyment it brings to our members but an easier decision on the other for the safety of all involved.

Ultimately we want to look forward to 2021 and make it a great camp for the kids.  Please pass on our heartfelt apologies to the future firefighters that we will truly miss this summer. 

NOTE – your registration for this year will be held for next year unless you would like a refund taking you off the list for 2021, no need to re-enroll.  Please let us know and we will take care of it asap.  For those that requests a refund, we will send out availability for the camp for 2021 to the current waiting list to work on filing those spots.  Also, if you son or daughter is approaching or exceeds the age of 13, we WILL make accommodations for him or her to work with our Junior Firefighters during camp week.

Thank you all for your continued support of the Limerick Fire Department and the volunteer fire service.  It is what makes our community great in every way.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.  Also watch our social media (Facebook & Instagram) communications for any open visits to the firehouse in the coming months. 

Thank you and we wish you a very safe and healthy summer break.

Sincerely,

Ken Shuler, Chief
Limerick Fire Dept.

Welcome to Limerick Fire Department's Youth Firefighter Camp.

All registered cadets will receive one LFD Fireman’s t-shirt and one LFD athletic shorts to wear as their ‘daily uniform’. The‘uniform shirt’ must be worn every day because it identifies which group the cadet is assigned to for the week. If you are interested in purchasing extra camp shirts, they must be ordered at the time of registration - $10 per shirt.

Why try this Camp? Kids will: 

  • Learn fire safety 
  • Learn about the fire house and the trucks 
  • Hands-on with the equipment 
  • Ladders 
  • Hoses 
  • Extinguishers 
  • Rescue tools 
  • Fire gear 
  • Watch several live demonstrations by the firefighters 
  • And more…. 

Due to the success of our camp, the deadline to register cannot be extended and attendance is limited.
