Thank you for your interest in serving as a counselor for the Connecticut Burns Care Foundation’s Arthur C. Luf Children’s Burn Camp.

The 2020 camp that was to be held from July 12 through July 19th has been canceled due to the current COVID crisis. We will post the 2021 dates as soon as they are made available. You will all be missed this year.  Please stay healthy and feel free to contact the office at 203-878-6744 or at any time, for anything.

All individuals interested in participating must be at least 21 years of age. Fully complete the enclosed application and submit it to the Connecticut Burns Care Foundation, Burn Camp Selection Committee, 601 Boston Post Road, Milford, CT 06460. The deadline for the receipt of all applications for the 2019 Children’s Burn Camp is May 1, 2020.

Please note the following:

  1. Only fully completed applications are reviewed by the selection committee.
  2. By applying, you do not automatically qualify for acceptance as a counselor in the camp.
    The selection of counselors depends on many factors, including: experience at this camp
    or other camps; certifications actively held in various activities like archery, ropes
    course, canoeing, lifeguard, kayaking, or sailing; special interests like arts & crafts,
    carpentry, culinary, plumbing, music, etc. and the number of campers attending.
  3. Submit three letters of recommendation with your application.
  4. A background check will be completed on you as part of the application process.
  5. Every counselor must submit a copy of his/her physical exam (the exam must have been
    completed within the last three years) using the special state required physical exam
    form in the application packet. No other form can be accepted.
  6. The Director of the Camp requires that each counselor make every effort to participate
    in a few scheduled work parties to help prepare for the opening and closing of the camp.
  7. All counselors serve on a volunteer basis.
  8. Only one member of any immediate family shall be a counselor or staffer at any given

We thank you in advance for your willingness to serve as one of our counselors. Thank you for helping to make a difference for our kids.
