The Arizona Burn Foundation is committed to providing a leadership development experience that helps serve its mission to improve the quality of life for burn survivors and their families while promoting burn prevention education and fire safety.
Leaders-in-Training is a comprehensive, multi-year leadership development program for burn survivors aged 16-20 who have attended Camp Courage. Our year-long programming combines leadership and real-world skill development with fun and social leisure activities.
In addition to activities throughout the year, LIT members participate in special Camp Courage programming, including leadership workshops and classes. They then spend the following two years at Camp Courage as counselors-in-training, where they might be placed with a bunk, or work in an area like arts and crafts.
Camp Courage is staffed by volunteers –– including doctors, nurses, social workers, physical and occupational therapists, fire service personnel, teachers, and other professionals.
Each year we need volunteers for the following positions: Counselors (guide campers through all activities all week); Ropes Crew (be a part of the ropes course, challenge course, archery or rifles); Art and Crafts (help campers express themselves creatively); and lifeguards (for the swimming pool and Lake Day).
All volunteers will be provided with professional development, team-building, and training sessions designed to prepare them to deal with the specific needs of burn survivors. Click below for application due dates and guidelines.
