SOUTH BEND, Ind. — A summer fire camp hosted by Clay Fire Department hopes to inspire the next generation of paramedics and firefighters.

The cost is $50 for children 10-13 years old.

Camp dates are set for June 17-21 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

Organizers say campers will learn lifesaving skills as well as the importance of teamwork and responsibility.

Registration is limited to 30 applicants with priority given to new campers.
