Burn Survivor Family Camp
May 31, 2018
This past Memorial Day Weekend, the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills Hospital celebrated its fourteenth year of “Burn Survivor Family Camp" at The Canyon Creek Sports Camp of Lake Hughes, approximately 18 miles east of Lake Castaic.
The Grossman Burn Center Family Camp offers an important emotional outlet for burn survivors and their families, as well as meets the goals for a comprehensive burn treatment center.
More than 150 burn survivors, family, burn center staff, and volunteers thoroughly enjoyed this confidence-building event through recreational activities including waterfall hikes, go-karts, a ropes course, arts & crafts, talent show, archery, softball and soccer games, and star gazing in age-appropriate support groups.
Sharing personal experiences in a safe and fun environment has a tremendous emotional effect on everyone in attendance and speaks to the spirit of traumatic healing.
