(BROOKSTON) - The Hoosier Burn Camp is underway at Camp Tecumseh near Brookston.

Executive Director Mark Koopman says firefighters, doctors, nurses and adult burn survivors lead teen burn victims through a week of traditional camp activities like canoeing and crafts.

Campers also participate in group projects and confidence-building courses.

The camp is designed to help burn survivors feel comfortable around peers who have experienced the same trauma. It runs through Friday.
