CampHERO teaches young girls about protective services, builds confidence

From July 19 through 26, nearly 200 girls ranging from kindergarten to recent high school graduates will be learning about fingerprinting, cutting apart cars and propelling from buildings at CampHERO.

Partnering with Girl Scouts of Wisconsin-Badgerland, CampHERO allows young girls to learn what it is like to work in protective services, which are career paths girls are not normally encouraged to pursue. It spans a week and immerses the campers in hands-on activities.

 

 

Nationally, only 31.2 percent of EMTs, 12.4 percent of police officers and 3.6 percent of firefighters are women, according to the camp’s website. CampHERO is working to fix this gender gap.
