Whether caused by a house fire, scalding cooking fluid, or an insurgent’s explosive device – burn injuries can have devastating consequences. Physical disfigurement and emotional scars make the recovery process a long and painful one. While the “outside” scars may require several complex surgeries, the “inside” scars are much more difficult to heal.
We believe that Burn Camps are the best way to support young burn survivors, as they learn to cope with their new lives. Our campers build self-confidence, make new friends, and forget about their scars while participating in ballgames, drum circles, surf lessons and unforgettable camp experiences.
We operate 3 burn camps, all run by volunteers and funded by donors. We have created the first specialized center for treating scars with lasers. Our camps restore the spirit while lasers heal the scars. Both are essential for a return to a stable and productive life.
