The Delaware Burn Camp was established to provide a safe and natural environment for the promotion of physical and emotional healing to young victims of burn injury. The mission of the Delaware Burn Camp is to assist young burn victims in their adjustment to injury through the provision of a safe, supportive environment and providing companionship through physical and social activities in a camp setting.
The camp welcomes free of charge any child between the ages of 6 - 18 that has sustained a serious burn injury. The Delaware Burn Camp raises money through the fire service, private organizations, and supportive community members. All of the costs for camp are covered by the organization and there is no charge to the camper's family, despite their income.
The burn camp is staffed by nurses, fire fighters, volunteers, professional, and non-professional people from around the state. Our staff is filled with caring individuals with an interest in helping others.
The camp is filled with a variety of activities that are designed for fun, learning, and development of self-esteem. Our activities are tailored to meet the physical and special needs of burn survivors. Some of the activities held at the camp include: Boating, Fishing, Swimming, Movies, Dancing, Archery, Hiking, Horseback Riding, Arts and Crafts, and more!
