Activities typically include: canoeing, swimming, handicrafts, fishing, skits, competitive activities, nature hikes, horseback riding, and a ropes course (a confidence building activity). There are also presentations and visits by special guests.
The camp program is designed to offer special summer camp opportunity to young people who have survived injuries from burns. Bringing survivors together, allows them to share common experiences through playing and exploring life together while not feeling self-conscious about what others may be thinking of their scars. The camp will give these young people an opportunity to make new friends and realize they are not the only ones with burn injuries.
The fundamental requirement for application and approval for camp attendance is that the child has suffered a burn that has required a doctor’s care. All applicants must have medical approval by a doctor prior to camp attendance and participation.
