Five days of enjoyment, encouragement, inspiration and togetherness.
We encourage physical and social activities to develop self worth and confidence. Activities are designed to develop new skills, enhance campers current skills help campers overcome anxieties and to take home what they have learnt and incorporate it into their everyday life.
What is Camp Awhi?
Camp is a 5 day, sleep-away experience for children ages 7-17 who have had (suffered?) a burn injury. It is an opportunity for children to have fun, learn life skills, meet other burn survivors and share their stories.
Although Camp Awhi campers are of varying ages, activities and groups are tailored towards each camper’s developmental needs. Awhi means to embrace and cherish. Our aim is to provide a safe, fun and supportive environment for everyone, to meet and share experiences.
How much does it cost?
NOTHING! Camp is FREE for campers.
The Burn Support Group fundraise all year round to be able to cover the whole cost of camp.
