Camp Mission Statement

The Wisconsin Alliance for Fire Safety's Summer Camp for Burn Injured Youth (sometimes called WAFS Burn Camp) is a statewide effort to provide a summer camping experience for youth 7-17 who have endured significant burn injuries.

 

The purpose of the camp is to provide for the unique needs of burn injured youth, while they are having fun, making friends, sharing feeling and developing self-esteem. We offer this to promote coping and life beyond the burn injury for these children.

In cooperation with:
  • The Wisconsin Fire Service
  • Children's Hospital of Wisconsin
  • Columbia St. Mary's Regional Burn Center, Milwaukee
  • University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics
  • American Family Children's Hospital
  • And other Public/Private Benefactors
