Summer camp brings confidence and hope to burn injured children

A special summer camp for burn-injured children is held is each year in the Midwest. The camp centers around giving children with burn injuries a fun-filled experience, where they can be free to be themselves without any kind of shame for their scars and other disfigurements.

Burn injuries can be devastating for children who might be insensitively criticized by classmates and other children they make contact with, but this summer camp seeks to change that. The camp offers all kinds of activities for kids that help boost their self-esteem in a safe and judgment-free environment. The camp is called "I Am Me" and just like the name implies, it strives to help kids feel good about who they are.

One young girl, who attended the camp this year, was burned severely when she was six by a crockpot filled with soup. She suffered disfiguring burns on her arm, hand, chest and neck as a result of the accident. This year, she attended the camp for a second time and was selected to be one of the camp's representatives in its 25th Anniversary celebrations. She will be featured as one of 25 faces for 25 years.

It is always good to see things done for children and others who are suffering from disfiguring burns. Many of these individuals may also have the ability to seek compensation for their injuries in court, if their burn injuries were caused by another party's negligence. If successfully navigated, such a claim could bring financial compensation to pay for medical car, reconstructive surgery and other expenses relating to the injuries.
