- Build Self-esteem
The primary goal of camp is to help campers build self-esteem. This is the single most valuable tool we can give them to help them. We do this through activities that are designed to foster teamwork, confidence, and individual accomplishments.
- Develop Social Skills
Campers are exposed to the rewards of group living and are assisted in the development of skills necessary for group living.
- Enhance Judgment and Decision-making
Each camper will be given opportunities to make decisions that affect him/her as an individual. They will be able to take sensible risks. A policy of “Challenge by Choice” exists for all potentially stressful situations.
- Acquire an Appreciation for the Environment
Each camper is exposed to a variety of outdoor educational programs.
- Instill a Sense of Teamwork
Camp stresses the importance of overcoming differences and working together as a team.
- Promote Healthy Recovery from Burn Injury
Campers are assisted in appropriately caring for themselves physically, psychologically, and socially.
The mission of the Mid-Atlantic Burn Camp Fund is to assist young burn survivors from the Mid-Atlantic region and their families in their adjustment to injury by providing an annual therapeutic residential summer camp and other year-round activities that support their physical, psychological, and social needs.
