Sponsor a Child to Attend Camp


For $100

you can sponsor a child to attend camp this summer!

Join us in supporting their journey towards healing and empowerment at Camp Gung Ho.

Your sponsorship will instill a renewed sense of hope and belonging in these young survivors.

Camp Gung Ho is just around the corner! It's more than just fun-filled days of adventure, crafts, and games.

For child burn survivors, camp is a safe space where they can truly be themselves. Instead of concealing their physical and emotional scars, campers can open up among others who understand their journeys.

Here, they form friendships and meaningful bonds that last a lifetime!

Ages 6 to14


Teen burn survivors ages 15 to18 are invited to participate as junior counselors and get school service hours and more!


Best friends are the people in your life that make you laugh louder, smile brighter, and live better.

Best friends believe in you when you don't believe in yourself.

How much does camp cost?

Camp Gung Ho is absolutely FREE!


Camp Gung Ho focuses on activities that encourage friendship, confidence-building and wellness. For young burn survivors, camp is more than fun-filled summer activities. It provides a unique opportunity to surround themselves with other children who can relate to their experiences. It offers a chance to open up about their scars in a safe environment. And instead of worrying about upcoming medical procedures and doctor's appointments, campers can enjoy days to the fullest and just be kids!

Children's Burn Foundation spoke with long-time camp attendee Jaqueline, who shared how camp helped her move past her injuries and build self-esteem. Similar to many other children, she described Camg Gung Ho as an event that she looks forward to all year long and the highlight of summer! Camp would not be possible without the incredible Council of Children's Burn Foundation and many generous Board members and volunteers.
