Burn Camp 2021 Announcement
The Burn Camp Committee and Burn Fund Team have made the decision to host Burn Camp virtually, rather than in-person, this upcoming July. Although it is with heavy hearts that we won’t be meeting in-person this year, we remain fully committed and excited to deliver virtual activities during our regular camp week.
These difficult circumstances do not diminish the spirit of Burn Camp or the love that we feel for our Burn Camp Family. After all, we all know that attitude is everything!
If you are a part of our Burn Camp Family and have any questions about Burn Camp 2021, please contact email@example.com.
About Burn Camp
The Burn Fund hosts young burn survivors for one week of camp each July. Over one thousand children from across B.C. 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 counselors 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 counselors – themselves burn survivors – and from their counselors. Doctors, nurses, medical therapists, adult burn survivors and professional fire fighters donate their time as counselors.
The camp is free for young burn survivors to attend. The cost to the Burn Fund for each camper to attend is approximately $2,900.
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.
