ISSUE 3 * VOL. 4 | JUNE 2023
Family Camp 2023
When a person experiences a burn injury, the whole family is affected. It is for this reason that the Family Burn Camp has been part of the Burn Camps Program for over 30 years. Six families from Ohio, Colorado and New Mexico met up at the Estes Park YMCA in early June for a four-night camp. Participants ages 1 through 60 created a camp community focused on connecting and continued healing. A staff of eight professionals crafted a program that included daily age-based breakout groups that focus on psychosocial support. A trip to the low-ropes course at Cheley Colorado Camps gave campers and families a taste summer camp while also promoting communication, team building, problem-solving and FUN! Everyone enjoyed a visit from Estes Valley Fire Protection District firefighters with two fire engines to explore including spraying a real fire hose. Visiting historic MacGregor Ranch and enjoying free-time activities at the YMCA gave families a chance to play and heal as a family.

Reflecting on the Family Camp experience one family wrote, “Getting to connect with other kids has improved his self-image a lot! He knows he's not the only kid that got burned anymore. And other people have siblings like him too. The whole experience was very much needed and more so than I realized myself. Thank you for everything!”
