Burn Camps

What are burn clubs and camps?

Burn clubs and camps are an opportunity for young people who have suffered burn injuries, to meet others, share experiences and improve self esteem. Clubs usually offer a range of activities ranging from day events to a residential camp experience offering a variety of challenging, creative, socialising and fun activities.

This focus on physical challenges is based on evidence that if young people with scars, who may not feel good about how their bodies look, can feel good about what their bodies can do, then this helps them have a better body image and higher self esteem.
