Camp I Am Me Dates June 18-24 2023 YMCA Camp Duncan Ingleside IL

The Illinois Fire Safety Alliance is excited to announce the dates for 2023’s Camp I Am Me! The 32nd annual “Burn Camp” will be taking place from Sunday, June 18th to Saturday, June 24th at YMCA Camp Duncan in Ingleside. 

Illinois’ camp for young burn survivors provides a special and unforgettable one-week experience for children and teenagers, ages 8-17, who have experienced injuries from burns. Through the generosity of donors, supporters, sponsors, and volunteers, the IFSA continues to offer this unique experience at no-cost to campers! Everything is covered!

2023’s camp is expected to run at full capacity, with all of the annual events, programs, and opportunities it’s provided for so many years. This includes blended activities and off-site opportunities for campers, the Fire Apparatus Parade, as well as the return of Appreciate Day and Fun Fair – all some of the campers’ favorite camp events!

Camper Applications will be distributed in early 2023 to parents. To ensure receipt of the application, or if you know a child who is eligible for Camp “I Am Me,” complete the Request for Support Information Form to ensure the most up-to-date information is received!

The IFSA is currently accepting requests to volunteer for the entire week of 2023’s camp. To learn more about this opportunity and to complete this initial form to be considered, click here!
