The Women in Fire Camp is a 6-day 5-night training and leadership Camp hosted by the U.S. Forest Service, Los Padres National Forest. The Camp is geared toward providing women with a realistic introduction to careers in wildland firefighting.

The goals of the Camp are to provide the following benefits:

  • Motivate more women in the workforce to learn about careers in wildland fire and work for the Forest Service.
  • Expose participants to a comprehensive wildland fire orientation using team building, leadership development, and professional development.
  • Allow participants to gain a better understanding of the physical demands of the job by providing simulated activities such as challenging uphill hikes that wildland firefighters regularly perform.
  • Participants also have an opportunity to complete and pass the Physical Agility Test and the basic fire training courses required of entry-level firefighters working for the Forest Service.
