The Oklahoma Firefighters Burn Camp is a summer camp provided, free of charge, for children aged 6 to 16 that have suffered major burns or disfiguring injuries any point in their lives requiring hospitalization.
Burn Camp offers a chance for child burn survivors to make new and life-long friendships with other burn survivors, in a setting of love, support, and unconditional acceptance. Adult burn survivors donate their time to show these children that their scars do not limit their ability to succeed in life and to help others.
Burn Camp is held each August at Dry Gulch USA, located between Pryor and Adair, Oklahoma, on the shores of Lake Hudson.
Dry Gulch USA is a sprawling and professionally staffed facility that allows campers to enjoy a variety of outdoor and indoor activities, which includes: swimming, go carts, horseback riding, bumper cars, arts and crafts, a ropes course, and fishing at nearby lakes with some of Oklahoma’s top anglers. Campers also get to hang out with firefighters from across the state of Oklahoma!
Counselors at this camp are made up of adult burn survivors, firefighters, nurses, burn techs, teachers, and other professionals from all walks of life. We maintain a 2:1 camper-counselor ratio. Counselors are chosen very carefully with full background checks performed. Oklahoma Firefighters Burn Camp is a 100% volunteer, non-profit organization.
