A group of young women are being put to the test at a week-long camp in Dartmouth.

At Camp Courage, they're pushed to learn the basics of three careers filled by emergency responders: police officers, firefighters and paramedics.

In order to qualify for the free camp, the girls have to do something to help someone less fortunate or help their community.
