Great fun for a great program
ACBC and MetroHealth Medical Center have partnered to provide pediatric burn survivors with exceptional ongoing physical and emotional healing and recovery. Proceeds from ACBC provide fire safety education, a winter and summer camp call Camp Phoenix, a scholarship program and a young adult program.
Staffed by Metro Health Medical Center Burn Unit personnel and firefighters from local departments, Camp Phoenix allows burn survivors, ages 5 to 17, the chance to enjoy the experiences of summer and winter camp.
Camp Phoenix gives burn survivors an opportunity to meet others who have gone through the physical and emotional challenges of burn recovery. Many of the campers who attended Camp Phoenix since its beginning in 1988 are now adults and return to camp as mentors and counselors.
