Camp Molly

Our Story

Our goal at Camp Molly remains the same; to show young females aged 15 to 18 years old that a career in the fire service is a viable and rewarding option.

Camp Molly pays tribute to the first female firefighter on record in North America, Molly Williams. In 2019, the fire departments of Halton Region hosted the Inaugural Camp Molly, and with the
generous support and donations from many charities, clubs, and business owners, it was an overwhelming success.
