Founded in 2012 - a nonprofit organization that runs a summer camp for girls. It is a Girl Scouts of Wi - Badgerland summer camp
CampHERO curriculum was designed by professionals in the protective services with guidance by Girl Scouts, the experts in leadership experiences for girls. The program is safe, hands-on and age appropriate.
Girls need to know that they are smart enough, strong enough and brave enough to pursue a paid or volunteer career as a police officer, fire fighter, EMT/paramedic or dispatcher. Nationwide, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (2022) 25.6% of paramedics, 12.7% of police and only 6.2% of fire professionals are women, leaving girls with few role-models to inspire and guide.
CampHERO is an effort to bridge that gap by helping girls to: discover their abilities and interests, connect with a network of mentors and be inspired to take action in making the world a better place through public service.
