TUCSON, Ariz. — Law enforcement and firefighting careers are traditionally male-dominated, but a local camp aims to teach girls they have what it takes to make it in those fields too.
Happening this week, 24 teenage girls from across Arizona and one from Maine will participate in the Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona's annual Camp Fury. It's a hands-on five-day, four-night experience that takes place at the Pima Safety Academy on Tucson's southeast side.
The girls will get real-world training from public safety personnel and will learn rescue skills and crime scene investigation techniques. The interactive experiences encourage leadership and physical fitness.
