The PFFWCF Alliance for Fire Safety's Summer Camp for Burn Injured Youth is a statewide effort to provide a summer camping experience for youth 7-17 who have endured significant burn injuries. The purpose of the camp is to provide for the unique needs of burn injured youth, while they are having fun, making new friends, sharing feelings and developing self esteem. We offer this to promote coping and life beyond the burn injury for these Wisconsin children.
The Alliance is a 501 (c) 3 organization that leases space at Camp Timer-Lee in East Troy, Wisconsin for the free week-long camping experience.
