Campers at Bulls Disaster Camp will have the unique opportunity to learn from a distinguished lineup of experts, including the USF Police Department, Medical Response Unit, Tampa Fire Rescue, the United States Coast Guard, USF Office of Emergency Management, the National Weather Service, FEMA, and more. These professionals bring real-world experience and invaluable insights into the multifaceted world of emergency services.

Throughout the week, participants will engage in hands-on activities, workshops, and simulations designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of emergency management. From basic first aid techniques to advanced disaster response strategies, campers will gain practical skills that can make a difference in critical situations.

A highlight of Bulls Disaster Camp is the certification component. Campers will receive official certification in first aid and CPR, enhancing their ability to respond effectively in emergency situations. This certification not only equips them with life-saving skills but also adds a valuable credential to their personal and academic portfolios.

The culmination of the camp experience is the eagerly anticipated mock disaster scenario. Here, campers will put their newly acquired knowledge and skills to the test in a realistic and controlled environment. This hands-on exercise allows them to showcase their abilities, work collaboratively with their peers, and receive feedback from seasoned professionals.

Bulls Disaster Camp at the University of South Florida is not just an educational experience; it's an adventure that fosters leadership, teamwork, and a sense of responsibility. As participants immerse themselves in the world of emergency management, they not only gain practical skills but also develop a deep appreciation for the critical role played by first responders in keeping our communities safe.

Join us this summer for an unforgettable journey into the heart of disaster preparedness at Bulls Disaster Camp – where tomorrow's leaders in emergency management are honing their skills today!
