TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Teenagers with Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona will get a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to be a firefighter and police officer today and throughout the week, thanks to Camp Fury; a program designed to help empower them.

The goal of Camp Fury is to inspire these girls to look into non-traditional jobs that generally tend to be male-dominated. The interactive training begins today, for girls from 15 to 17 year old. 

During the week they will learn rescue skills, fitness drills and crime scene investigation techniques. They will also get a chance to suit up. 

It is all thanks to a partnership between the Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona and the Tucson Fire Department, Tucson Police Department, the Oro Valley Police Department and the Northwest Fire District. 

Women from these agencies are expected to be there to talk with participants about the careers in law enforcement and firefighting.

The message the camp's organizers hope these girls can take away is that they can do anything.

This is the sixth session of Camp Fury, registration is currently closed, but 17 girls are registered for the 2014 program.
