The following Burns Camps are also being arranged for you to go away and meet old and new friends
Outdoor activity Centre – For children 7 – 12 years
Outdoor Activity Centre – For children 13 – 16 years
Sherwood Forest – For children 0-7 years and families
Day events for 18-25 years
Our Halloween and Christmas Parties will be held annually
If you would be interested to attend the correct camp for your age group, please complete the attached sheet with your name, address, date of birth and age.
We are also in the process of updating our database to ensure that the Burns Club is still targeting those children who require support. Please could you also complete the slip if you do not wish to attend any of these camps but still wish to be part of the Burns Club.
Return forms ASAP
Please remember that the Family Burns Club costs a considerable amount each year to run, therefore we need help with fundraising. If you think you could run a fundraising activity or would like to help with any activity, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or send a message via the Facebook group.
Family Burns Club
We take children to residential activity centres in various parts of the country where we can have access to outdoor activities. The most important thing is to provide a secure environment where the young people can be themselves, away from some of the pressures which come from being ‘different’.
During the time away at camp there are many activities which are fun and exciting for all ages. Some of these are quiet things like arts and crafts. However, many of them are much more adventurous and offer personal challenges. The camps provide children, with opportunities that they may not otherwise be given, including caving, climbing, canoeing, high rope challenges and orienteering.
Family Burns Club have approximately 160 members. It provides an opportunity for young people who have had major burn injuries, whether still receiving treatment or not, to meet with others who have had similar experiences and join in with activities and events.
Annual events include
- Family weekend for burn injured children 0-7, parent’s carers and siblings
- Activity weekend camp for burn injured child 7-13 years
- Activity weekend camp for burn injured child 13-18 years
- Day events for families and young adults 18-25 years
- Halloween & Christmas parties
