Summer Camp (Ingleside)

June 16 - June 22

A special and unforgettable one-week camp experience for children and teenagers who have experienced injuries from burns. Through the generosity of donors, supporters, and volunteers, Camp I Am Me offers this summer camping opportunity at no-cost to campers; including lodging, meals, activities, and transportation to and from camp (YMCA Camp Duncan – Ingleside, IL).

No other Camp I Am Me program has received greater attention from the fire service, medical community, general public and the media than Summer Camp. 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.

2024 Camper Applications will be emailed/mailed to camper parents/guardians in early 2024. If you have a child that is Summer Camp eligible, be sure to contact the Camp I Am Me office to ensure you receive a Camper Application Form.

Questions? Call the Camp I Am Me office at 847-390-0911 or email Program Coordinator, Leslie Metcalf at lmetcalf@ifsa.org.
