Camp Description Camps are free to any Georgia resident between the ages 7-17 who sustained a burn injury that required treatment or hospitalization in a Burn Center. Children who are not residents of Georgia but have been treated or hospitalized in one of the Burn Centers in Georgia are also eligible to attend. Camp staff is primarily comprised of fire service, burn survivors, and allied health that volunteer and generously give their time. The Georgia Firefighters Burn Foundation partners with Camp Twin Lakes at both its Will-A-Way and Rutledge facilities. Camp Twin Lakes is a nonprofit organization that offers year-round recreational, therapeutic, and educational programs for children and young adults facing serious illnesses and other life challenges.

Program Details Camp programming is designed to be “fun with a purpose” and our campers had a week of exciting activities including high-ropes, archery, ceramics classes, drumming circles, cooking, and horseback riding… each structured with focus on teaching life skills. Campers connected with new and old friends, created new memories, and were reminded the best part about camp is learning new things about themselves too!

Camp Program Name Burn Survivor Family Weekend

Ages of Participants All ages

Camp Dates September 20-22

Average Number of Participants 125

Program Description The GFBF recognizes the roots of trauma from a burn injury, whether an adult or child, reach far beneath the surface of the individual experiencing the physical injury. This weekend provides a unique opportunity for families to connect with others who share common experiences associated with burn trauma (both burn injured and non-burn injured) and acknowledges the voice of those who may not have experienced the physical burn injury but are closely connected to the trauma.
