Texas Burn Survivor Society hosts Camp David each year at the Texas Lion’s Camp in Kerrville. Campers love the hill country setting, beautiful pool and cafeteria in addition to the great dormitories. There are special facilities for crafts, environmental and wildlife study, fishing and horseback riding, as well as a wide variety of water related sports. The camp has certified camp counselors and a 24-hour, staffed medical facility. It is located on Hwy 27, one hour north of San Antonio.
Camp David is a week of adventure and discovery, designed specifically for pediatric burn survivors aged 7 to 16. Camp David is unique among burn camps because it also includes siblings and children of burn survivors whose lives are also severely impacted by burn injury.
While at camp, children learn skills such as fishing, archery and horseback riding, all of which could be the first encounter they have ever had. More importantly, kids learn the soft-skills of how to interact with others. These values enhance their ability to not only survive the injury but, to gain self confidence, self-esteem and the coping skills which helps them to re-enter and function happily in society.
Surrounded by caring mentors, volunteers of the Texas Burn Survivor Society and the incredible men and women of the San Antonio, Austin, and Kerrville Fire Departments, Camp David allows the children to discover that anything is possible. Here, potential has no limit!
