Firefighters Burn Fund
Camp Phoenix is for children and youth ages 6 to 17 who are burn survivors, many of whom have been patients in the Childrens Hospital burn unit. Every year children and youth from Manitoba, Northwestern Ontario and Nunavut attend Camp Phoenix. The camp, fully funded by the Manitoba Firefighters Burn Fund, is coordinated and staffed by Momenta with support from an Occupational Therapist that works with the campers in the hospital setting. Each year volunteers attend the camp to provide additional support, including camp alumni, firefighters, burn survivors, and health and education professionals. Camp Phoenix is one of the longest running camps of its kind in North America, and provides an environment for children to be themselves and talk with other burn survivors about their experiences.
