The Central Virginia Burn Camp was established in March of 1994 by the Charlottesville Professional Firefighters Association, providing a fun, safe, and exciting summer camp for young burn survivors. The Camp now begins it's 12th year, since it's inception firefighters from across the Commonwealth and numerous organizations have assisted in making the Central Virginia Burn Camp a success. This residential camp is designed to meet the social, physical, and psychological needs of young burn victims. It also allows Firefighters the opportunity to share experiences with these unique children, most of whom, much like a Firefighter, posses a first hand understanding of fire and its devastating effects.
School Age (6-12), Adolescence (13-21)
The camp is free to children between the ages of 7 & 17, and is staffed by Nurses, Firefighters, Physical and occupational therapists, and other interested volunteers. Our main focus is to meet the special needs of the young burn survivor, and to provide an environment which stimulates his/her curiosity, leading to the exploration of issues with other burned children.
