Camp "I Am Me"


The mission of 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-judgmental atmosphere in which children have the opportunity to build their self-esteem as they enjoy the varied activities that make up their camp experience.


No other IFSA program has received greater attention from the fire service, medical community, general public and the media than Camp “I Am Me”. Camp provides the setting for child burn survivors to share their common experiences while being able to play and not feel self conscious about their scars. The benefits to the campers -- physical, psychological, and emotional -- have been enough to inspire a long list of eager volunteers and contributors.
