About Hoosier Burn Camp (HBC)
When a child sustains a burn injury, their life is changed forever. HBC, founded in 1997, was started to provide peer support for these children. Summer camp is a special experience for all children, but HBC combines the “good old fashion fun of summer camp” with the life skills kids need to fully recover from a serious trauma of burn injuries. The cost to send one child to camp is $1000.00 per week. Our donation will help defray some of the cost to operate HBC. To find out more, visit
