Camp Phoenix is an annual injury recovery family camp that is run by the KIDS Foundation to support children, adolescents and adults who have experienced burns or other life-changing injuries. Phoenix encourages peer-to-peer and family support, along with professional support from volunteers including nurses and psychologists.
At Phoenix, families enjoy a wide range of experiences including indoor and outdoor group activities, support sessions and group outings. Phoenix aims to provide participants with a supportive environment in which they can make social connections and enjoy new experiences.
The camp offers opportunities for those who have experienced trauma to share experiences with others who have been through similar circumstances. Participants are welcomed to attend Phoenix with family members.
This year camp Phoenix is being held on the 24th to the 27 of November in Queensland.
