The Great Lakes Burn Camp operates entirely on Donations and Fundraisers. These donations allow the campers to come for a week of summer camp and a 4 day winter camp with no out of the pocket expense to the parents. The Great Lakes Burn Camp provides all the transportation needed to get to camp and get home.

Volunteer labor allows the camp to operate in this fashion. All of the staff (cabin counselors, kitchen help, and support staff) donate their time to allow the campers to have a super fun filled week. The camp does pay our Cook (who provides very hearty meals!) and on-site Psychologists which may be needed during the week.

The summer camp itself has an expense of $60,000 - $80,000. This includes camp property rental, insurance, food, camper transportation, etc. The cost per camper is averaged conservatively at $600.
