Burn Camps in Texas

Camp I-Thonka-Chi:

Texas- Dallas
This camp is sponsored by Parkland Memorial Hospital; the meaning of the camp is “a place that makes one strong or fearless, not afraid to face life”. Survivors in this camp participate in various activities which include fishing, canoeing, arts and crafts and much more. Adult burn survivors join the Parkland Burn Center staff to serve as volunteer counselors to the children. Participation by adult burn survivors provides role models who, in spite of similar injuries, have gone on to lead normal, productive lives. Children in this camp share with others burn survivors their experience and what they have gone through making them feel that they are not alone and that there is support.
