2014 Young Adult Retreat - Georgia On My Mind

Burn survivor support agencies from New York, California, and Georgia have collaborated once again to offer a very special program addressing issues faced by young adult burn survivors by providing a peer-based support retreat. This year’s host is the Georgia Firefighters Burn Foundation and will take place from April 3-6, 2014.   The retreat will take place at Camp Dream outside of Atlanta, Georgia.

The transition from adolescence to adulthood can be a challenging time for everyone. Having experienced a burn injury the challenges can be even more trying. Therefore, partnering burn survivor support agencies would like to offer this program for young adults, ages 18-25, to provide a mechanism of emotional support with others who have shared similar experiences. The Young Adult Burn Survivors Retreat provides the opportunity for peer-focused support and an empowering journey towards self discovery.

The Finger Lakes Regional Burn Association, Inc. (FLRBA) is pleased to be able to offer scholarships to young adult burn survivors who meet the criteria of attending the retreat. If awarded, FLRBA will cover the costs of registration fees, travel, lodging, and on-site meals. Space and resources are limited and we want to give everyone a fair opportunity to attend but we cannot take everyone. Please complete the application at the link below and tell us why participating is important to you and what you feel you will gain by attending.

To be considered applicants must be:

  • A Burn Survivor
  • Between the ages of 18 and 25 years of age  
  • Be prepared to write a narrative, if requested about your experience at the Young Adult Burn Survivors Retreat within 2 weeks of returning home
