Burn Camp 2019 will be July 21 – 26
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. Help support our camp by purchasing Burn Camp Apparel
