About the Trip

Gear up and work alongside the elite women from Southern Arizona’s fire and police services. You’ll rappel over the edge of a six-story building, climb a 110-foot ladder truck, investigate crime scenes, and ride along with driving instructors in a high-speed obstacle course! You’ll sleep in the engine house at the training academy and get plenty of fun in too!

You’ll start each day early with physical training. After breaking up into girl-led crews you’ll take on the day’s activities, which will include hands-on learning stations which are a blend of both fire and police service tasks. These stations include the activities listed above, plus lifesaving compression-only CPR (a technique developed at the University of Arizona) and more. Learn the stories of real women breaking the glass ceilings in these male-dominated professions. Your training leaders will be your friends and mentors for life. Your evenings are spent on fun leadership skill building and bonding with your crew.
