A Burn Camp for Children
Dates: August 5–9, 2022
Located in Millcreek Canyon, just outside of Salt Lake City, this five-day, four-night camp introduces children to the burn survivor world. Kids will meet, talk, play, and live with other survivors their age, fully supported by our experienced counseling staff. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, camp will be split into two sections this year.
Activities such as canoeing, rock climbing, and archery give them a chance to build self-esteem and create lasting friendships. Psychosocial professionals additionally provide role-playing activities and mentorship for the young survivor to take on the challenges that life presents.
This application is for anyone wanting to be a full time staff member at Camp Nah Nah Mah (this is a volunteer position). Full time staff will be required to be at camp for the entire length of the camp. New applicants will be contacted to schedule an interview. Due July 1, 2022.
All applicants will be sent information to complete a background check and the University of Utah Youth Protections Departments online training.
This application is for anyone over 18 years of age wanting to volunteer at Camp Nah Nah Mah. Camp volunteers typically attend for a block of time on one day or multiple days of camp. Duties include setting up activities, cleaning the lodge, and set-up/take down of archery, canoeing, and pool area.
If you have never attended a burn camp program before, we encourage you to apply to be a volunteer staff first. This gives you a chance to see what camp is all about and if it will be a good fit for you in the future. All applicants will be sent information to complete a background check and the University of Utah Youth Protections Departments online training. Due July 15, 2022.
