Youth Burn Survivors Summer Camp

August 1-4, 2019

At Watson Homestead and Retreat Center in Painted Post, NY

You are invited to join us at Camp Courage on August 1-4th, 2019. Our theme this year is Carnival Days! 🎪

If you’ve never been to camp, you will meet other burn survivors of all ages and make lifelong friendships. It’s a welcoming, fun, safe and secure place to be where you can be confident with other burn survivors like you.

There isn’t a cost to attend Camp Courage. It’s made possible by The Finger Lakes Regional Burn Association and its many supporters. We have a lot of great activities planned. So you don’t want to miss it!
