Steam reaching temperatures greater than 200°F builds rapidly in covered containers. When removing lids from hot foods, lift the cover or lid away from your face and arms to avoid burns from steam contact.

CAMP COURAGE

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. In recent years due to its highly recognized programs, Camp Courage has also been serving and supporting campers from Nevada, and California. 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.

YOUNG ADULT RETREAT

For those effected by a severe burn injury, entering into adulthood has its unique challenges. Relationships, intimacy, career possibilities and a support system are all issues they must learn to deal with as a thriving burn survivor. The Young Adult Retreat brings burn survivors ages 18-25 together to address these issues in a safe and caring environment. For more information contact programs@azburn.org.

FAMILY CAMP

Family Camp was created to address the needs of Preschool burn survivors and their families. A burn injury affects the entire family, especially when the injury occurs to a young child. There is anxiety for the parents concerning wound care and subsequent surgeries. There is confusion for the other siblings due to attention given to the injured sibling. These issues are addressed in a therapeutic setting at Family Camp. For more information contact programs@azburn.org.

SAVE THE DATE!

Family Camp 2018 will be February 9-11.
