About Camp Connect

 

The NSFFBTS, influenced by the QEII and the IWK burn units, established a camp where adult and child survivors of burns could come together.  The camp started in 1998 and has been a great success ever since.

 

The primary purpose of the camp is to provide an opportunity for burn survivors to come together in a relaxed atmosphere and enjoy all the fun that a camp can provide. Itís also an opportunity for the campers, if they wish, to join in discussions about being a burn survivor.

 

Our camp is unique in that it offers programs for all ages, as well as an opportunity for children and adults to interact and share experiences. But mostly, camp is about having fun!

 

In 2002 a contest was held among campers to name the camp. Today it is known as Camp Connect and is held annually at Scotian Glen Camp near New Glasgow, NS. Camp is staffed by volunteers including fire fighters, volunteer hospital staff, paramedics and Scotia Glen Camp Counsellors.


Families are responsible for their transportation to and from camp, however if special arrangements are required, please call: 1-902-835-0166.
