The transition from adolescence to adulthood can be a challenging time for everyone. Having experienced a burn injury the challenges can be even more trying. Therefore, partnering burn survivor support agencies would like to offer this program for young adults, ages 18-25, to provide a mechanism of emotional support with others who have shared similar experiences. The Young Adult Burn Survivors Retreat provides the opportunity for peer-focused support and an empowering journey towards self discovery.
Burn survivor support agencies from California, New York and Georgia have collaborated once again to offer a very special program addressing issues faced by young adult burn survivors by providing a peer-based support retreat.
The Georgia Firefighters Burn Foundation is hosting the retreat May 11-14, 2017 at the Camp Dream facility inside Roosevelt Warm Springs in Warm Springs, Georgia. For Directions to the facility please click here: Camp Dream Directions
The deadline for applications is April 21, 2017. We will notify applicants by April 28, 2017 regarding their participation.
Please note: You are responsible for your own transportation arrangements to and from the retreat.
If you are a burn survivor between the ages of 18 and 25 who is a resident of Georgia OR if you were treated in a Georgia burn center please consider joining us for the weekend!
