About Burn Camp
The Burn Fund hosts young burn survivors for one week of camp each July. Over one thousand children from across BC. between the ages of 6 to 18 have attended since 1994. The camp provides young burn survivors with an opportunity to share experiences with their peers. The Burn Camp Committee works hard for many months planning for an exciting and memorable Burn Camp! This year’s host for our Burn Camp are the friendly folks at Cheakamus Centre in Paradise Valley.
Campers and their counsellors participate in group activities such as swimming, hiking, kayaking, rafting, waterskiing, skit night, and arts & crafts. They also receive valuable one-on-one support from junior counsellors – themselves burn survivors – and from their counsellors. Doctors, nurses, medical therapists, adult burn survivors and professional fire fighters donate their time as counsellors.
The camp is free for young burn survivors to attend. The cost to the Burn Fund for each camper to attend is approximately $3,000.
Thanks to the support of donors and sponsors, the Burn Fund covers the campers’ travel, accommodation and the cost of coordinating and operating the camp.
