About Mississippi Burn Camp Foundation

The Mississippi Burn Camp Foundation offers a free camp for young burn survivors ages 6-17, staffed by volunteers and funded by donations. All proceeds go directly to the camp operations & activities — there are no paid personnel.

The camp began in 1996 and has been helping survivors and healing hearts for over 20 years.

Camp is staffed by volunteers, including firefighters, teachers, healthcare workers, nurses and others. The camp is offered at no charge to the participants and includes food, lodging, activity supplies, camp T-shirts and a week of fun, friendship and entertainment.

A scheduled ‘tour & fun day’ is available to children under 6 and their parents to experience camp. Please contact us to sign up.
