Burn Prevention Network Unveils New Camp Susquehanna Logo
The nonprofit's summer camp will continue to provide programming to youth burn survivors.
Camp Susquehanna is a free sleepaway summer camp for children ages 7-17 who have had a burn injury and is made possible by generous donors, supporters, and sponsors each year. Campers of all ability and function levels can have fun, learn life skills, and meet other burn survivors through activities such as swimming, music, communal meals, fishing, ropes courses, and campfires. Each year, campers form special bonds with camp counselors who act as their role models and inspirations.
"We are quite excited about having a new logo and the opportunity to usher in a new era of Camp Susquehanna,"
Camp Susquehanna has been making a difference in the lives of youth burn survivors since its founding in 1994. Alan Breslau, a burn survivor and founder of the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors, gave a lecture to the Lancaster Byler Sertoma Club in 1994. The members were so inspired by his words and actions that they were moved to collaborate with him and start Camp Susquehanna. It hosted eight children in its inaugural summer and has only grown since then. BPN began managing the program in 2015.
