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.
Three parallel programs make up a unique camp where families are able to play, laugh, and learn. The Burn Survivor Program focuses on healthy emotional and physical recovery through therapy play and socialization with other burn survivors. The Sibling Program provides therapeutic recreational activities for non-burn survivor and older children and a daycare for infants and toddlers. Siblings are recognized as important and unique supporters to their burn survivor brother or sister. The Adult Program assists parents and caregivers by providing the support and education necessary to nurture a child who has suffered a severe burn injury. Infant care is provided while adults are in their sessions.
On behalf of the partners in recovery hosting this unique family burn camp program, we invite you and your child to “Come Play & Grow Together!” For more information, please contact Valorie Smart at (916) 739-8525.
