2020 Burn Survivor Family Campout

Dear Campers,

We have been actively monitoring the developments of COVID-19. Clearly, it has taken a more serious turn in the last 24 hours regarding holding social/public events.  We sincerely regret to inform you that after consulting with the Kern County Public Health Department, we must make the difficult decision to cancel the family camp out. The well-being and safety of our survivors and their families are our priority.  We look forward to seeing you all next year!
