The Arizona Children’s Burn Camp, Camp Courage, was created to address the emotional needs of children who have suffered severe burn injuries. The inaugural camp at Friendly Pines in Prescott began on August 18, 1991. Today, approximately 80 youth burn survivors from around the state attend this free, therapeutic camp each year. Activities include: horseback riding, mountain biking, fishing, swimming, arts & crafts, tie dye, high ropes, rappelling, and more. It is through the generous support of donors that the Arizona Burn Foundation is able to offer this at no cost to camper families.
Each year for the past five years the Arizona Burn Foundation has contracted Prescott College’s Centaur Leadership Services (CLS) program to provide therapeutic equine experiences for their week long Camp Courage in Prescott. Video courtesy of Prescott College.
