Firefighters Kids Camp is a program held annually to benefit young burn survivors ages six (and have completed the 1st grade) to seventeen.
Little Heroes Family Burn Camp is a burn recovery program designed for young burn survivors, ages one to six years old and their families. This unique, three-day program helps families understand and cope with physical and emotional challenges associated with burn recovery. In a supportive camp environment, families have the opportunity to meet other families who are overcoming similar challenges.
In 2005, the Firefighters Burn Institute started a scholarship program for burn survivors who have participated in programs, events and/or services offered by the Firefighters Burn Institute and who were treated as an inpatient at a medical burn facility for twenty-four hours or more.

Applicants must be pre-enrolled and accepted for full- or part-time attendance to a college, university, community college, trade school, or technical school before any funds are distributed. Recipient must maintain a minimum 2.5 GPA throughout the school year. This scholarship may be awarded to an applicant a maximum of twice.
