About The Great Lakes Burn Camp

Our mission, to strive to provide a unique experience that promotes healing, self-esteem, confidence, and general well-being for burn-injured children, is what camp is all about. We are a volunteer-run organization comprised of caring compassionate adults. Our goal is to provide unconditional love and acceptance to all burn survivors that attend our camp. We are dedicated to creating a safe space for campers to grow and bond with other burn survivors.

We have held a summer camp for the past 25 years and a winter camp for 22 years. Very often, our former campers return to be staff! They love paying it forward and can relate their own personal experience to the kids attending camp.

Many of our campers have needs beyond their injuries. Through generous donations, we are able to provide all kinds of items to campers, including clothing, toiletries, coats, boots, and many other items. Campers at summer camp also receive free backpacks and school supplies.

We also offer scholarships for former campers to attend college or trade school. More information is available on their website http://glbcforkids.org/
