FAMILY CAMP SEPT 23rd  TO 25th, 2016.

Camp BUCKO’s Family Camp 2016 will be held at our new home, Cedar Ridge Camp on Friday September 23 to Sunday September 25, 2016.  This will be an opportunity for families to participate in camp programs similar to those that are offered during the week of Camp BUCKO. Come on out and practice your rock climbing skills, test yourself on the ropes course,  go for a paddle in our massive war canoe or perhaps a nature walk. Not only do we offer the chance to participate in these and a few more activities,  we also offer all participants the opportunity to get to know other Burn Survivors and their families. It is an environment that offers support,  understanding , growth and fun.

If you would like to attend Family Camp  2016 and for more information  please contact Camp BUCKO soon as possible as our deadline for applications is September 12th.

We hope to see you there !!!

Camp BUCKO

Camp BUCKO (BUrn Camp for Kids in Ontario) is a camp open to burn survivors between the ages of 7-17.  The camp has grown to over 70 children attending the week long camp in August.  There is no fee to attend Camp BUCKO.

We are a registered charity providing the program through generous donations from Firefighters Associations, service groups, and other public and private organizations. A Board of volunteers from across Ontario plans for camp all year. With the donations we receive we are able to fully fund each child's stay at camp, their transportation and camp “swag”.

We will help arrange transportation for campers all across Ontario. We have also had campers from other provinces attend our camp if there was not a burn camp for them to attend in their home province.

Health providers, Firefighters, adult burn survivors, and burn support staff attend camp as Volunteer Counsellors to support the experienced Cedar Ridge Camp staff.  We also have a VIT (Volunteer-In-Training) Program for campers who wish to become Volunteer Counsellors.

If you are a burn survivor between the ages of 7 and 17, who has received 2 weeks (or more) of treatment by a Physician in order for your burn injury to heal and you would like to register for Camp BUCKO, please contact us at the 1-877-272-8256 / 647-343-2267.

We would love you to join us at Camp BUCKO 2017!  Plans are well underway for an awesome week and we are really excited about you joining us at camp.

If you are interested in attending Camp BUCKO 2017, please visit our website in January 2017 for an application.  If you are unsure if your child qualifies for camp BUCKO or would like more information, please contact us at 647-343-2267 or 1-877-272-8256.

We are really looking forward to seeing our BUCKO friends at camp this year in addition to making new ones. We need to hear from you promptly so we can continue with our planning!  Spaces may be limited so send your reply in right away! 

Full registration packages will be sent out in March 2017.
