25th Burn Camp back

Burn Camp 2018 is ready to roll for the 25th year starting this Sunday at the Legacy Sports Centre in Abbotsford, B.C.

Things get underway at 3270 Trethewey Street, when campers, their families and the camp volunteers - firefighters, burn unit doctors & nurses and adult burn survivors - gather for Burn Camp 2018!

The event is funded by the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund.  
Camp counselors, including professional firefighters; adult burn survivors; and doctors & nurses from the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn, Plastic and High Acuity Unit at Vancouver General Hospital and the Burn Unit at BC Children’s Hospital, donate their time.

The Burn Fund was established in 1978 by the BC Professional Fire Fighters Association, it provides life-saving, life-supporting, and life enriching services to the people in British Columbia and the Yukon.

The Burn Camp was started, by the now retired, Peter Hansen and Norm McLeod, North Vancouver District Fire Fighters. These firefighters, who were also Directors on the Burn Fund Board, saw the importance of having such a camp and worked with the Burn Fund to establish it.

In conjunction with Burn Camp, the BC Professional Fire Fighters' Burn Fund urges everyone, especially children, to take care and have a safe, injury-free summer. Campers’ injuries range from playing with gasoline and matches to scalds from hot water and liquids to accidental injuries like house fires and boating and car accidents.
