An opportunity for families to share their stories and live together in a supported environment while learning and growing with each other.
Why a Family Camp? When a significant burn injury occurs it affects not just the person that was burned but other family members as well. Recovering from burn injuries goes beyond the burn and includes emotional healing for parents and siblings.
This camp offers the support to continue the healing of each person allowing them to move forward and grow as a family.
The goals of Family Burn Camp are to: Give families a chance to connect with others that have had similar experiences; give families time to connect as a family to focus on their special strengths and support their growth; give families a chance to learn new skills to apply in their lives after camp; offer opportunities to build confidence while decreasing guilt, shame, stigmas and other negative feelings that family members often experience after a burn injury.
Family Burn Camp offers the opportunity for families impacted by severe burn injuries to come together, form a supportive community and share their experiences.
