IAFF Burn Foundation’s International Burn Camp
The 2019 International Burn Camp was held this year in Washington DC
The IAFF Burn Foundation’s International Burn Camp has earned international acclaim over the last decade. Each year, the Foundation selects a young burn survivor, ages 13-15, and a professional fire fighter/camp counselor from regional burn camps across the United States and Canada . These individuals come to the Nation’s Capital for the week-long program which includes tours of the monuments, memorials and museums, visits with national leaders and other activities with local fire fighters.
Many IAFF affiliates and members, regional burn foundations, interested individuals and businesses partner with the IAFF Burn Foundation to sponsor events during the National Camp. They provide financial support, donate apparel and memorabilia, arrange for special transportation for attendees and make other extraordinary efforts to ensure each camp attendee’s experience is memorable.
This internationally recognized program was developed to give young burn survivors the opportunity to explore Washington , DC and share their experiences with other teens who have fought back courageously and successfully from burn injuries.
The friendships developed last well beyond their week together at the IAFF Burn Foundation’s International Burn Camp.
