Burns Camp - £30,449

Burn injuries can require years of painful treatments and aftercare and children can face many problems adapting to their scars, rebuilding their self-confidence and reintegrating into a society that isn’t always kind to people who look different.

The Burns Unit runs two week-long, residential Burns Camps per year – one camp for younger children (aged 5-10) and one for older children (aged 11-16). Both camps provide fun activities geared towards rehabilitation and increasing self-esteem.

The cost of sending one child to the camp, as well as the staffing costs, is £1,218. We would like to provide this opportunity to 25 children. 

We've put together a short safety guide for protecting your child from burns and scalds in the home, which you can download here.
