Camp Funshine is an annual retreat for children who have survived traumatic burn injuries. This camp provides tremendous value to these young survivors in many ways, including some that might not seem obvious. Like traditional camps, the children get to experience fun recreational activities and outdoor adventures like boating, swimming, music, arts and crafts, and more. But perhaps more importantly, Camp Funshine serves as a safe place for these children to bond with others their own age who understand their pain, and can relate to what they’ve felt, seen and experienced. They’re able to make friends, find acceptance for their scars—both physical and emotional—and build the self-esteem and confidence that every child deserves.
Many families of pediatric burn patients struggle to make ends meet, and an experience like Camp Funshine wouldn’t be possible without financial assistance. The Mississippi Burn Foundation depends on the generosity of people like you to help us give more children the chance to attend this important, life-changing retreat.
