Family Retreat is a support-based program designed for burn survivors, ages 0-8 years old and their immediate family members. This unique two-day and overnight program helps children along with their families understand and cope with the physical and emotional challenges associated with burn recovery. Family Retreat will provide an opportunity for families to spend time with others overcoming similar challenges in an informal, supportive camp setting.
The program focuses on healthy emotional and physical recovery with an emphasis on providing the children the opportunity to socialize with other burn survivors. The adult sessions assist parents and caregivers by providing the support and education necessary to encourage a child who has suffered a severe burn injury and the sibling program provides therapeutic recreational activities for older children and a professional daycare for younger children. 2020 dates and applications coming soon.
