The mission of the IFSA Camp I Am Me is to provide a safe environment for children who have experienced significant burn injuries. It is our goal to provide a non-judgemental atmosphere in which children have the opportunity to build their selfesteem as they enjoy the varied activities that make up their camp experience.
A special and unforgettable summer camp experience for children and teenagers who have experienced injuries from burns is being offered by the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance.
Camp I Am Me provides the setting for burn survivors to share their common experiences while being able to play and not feel self conscious about what others may be thinking of their scars. Camp I Am Me provides campers with some of the best friends they will ever make. After camp, the children will continue on with their own lives but it will be different - they will have new friends and realize that they are not the only one with a burn injury.
THE ILLINOIS SAFETY ALLIANCE CAMP I AM ME IS STILL THE ONLY AMERICAN CAMPING ASSOCIATION (ACA) ACCREDITED BURN CAMP IN THE UNITED STATES!
