Camp Phoenix North
Camp Phoenix is for children and youth aged 6 to 16, who have been patients in the Children’s Hospital burn unit. Every year between 30 and 40 children and youth from Manitoba, Northwestern Ontario and Nunavut, attend Camp Phoenix. The camp is fully funded by the Manitoba Firefighters Burn Fund, is coordinated and staffed by Momenta with support from an Occupational Therapist that works with the campers in the hospital setting. Each year volunteers attend the camp to provide additional support, volunteers include camp alumni, firefighters, burn survivors, health and education professionals. Camp Phoenix is one of the longest running camps in North America of its kind, and provides an environment for children to be themselves and talk with other burn survivors about their experiences.
