Want to be an Explorer
The next Open House will be held in May of 2024. Visit our home page for more details.
To become a Castle Rock Explorer you must have completed the eighth grade and be between 14 and 20 years old. Interested applicants need to email Engineer Taylor Reifschneider at email@example.com. All potential candidates will be contacted in March about the Open House in May and Explorer Academy in June.
The first step will be to attend three (3) consecutive explorer meetings held in May on Tuesday from 1700 - 2000 These three (3) meetings are for you to understand what the post is all about, the commitment that is involved, and to immerse you into the explorer life style. This is known as the "Observer Stage".
Things you will need to bring to your first PARTICIPATING meeting:
The second step is to fill out an application and all required forms and submit them by your third consecutive meeting. Applicants are taken on a first come, first served basis and are encouraged to get an application in as soon as possible.
The third step is once all required paper work is filled out, you will be issued an explorer task book and bunker gear (Protective firefighting gear that includes: Helmet, SCBA Mask, Protective Hood, Coat, Pants, Suspenders, Gloves, and Bunker Boots).
While in Explorer Post 107 you will be expected to maintain an acceptable attendance record as well as perform well in school, explorers are required to maintain at least a 2.5 GPA.
We are excited about your interest in Explorer Post 107 and hope to see you at our next academy!
