THE STORY:

About Camp Janus
Camp Janus is a unique recreational, therapeutic, and educational opportunity for children who have recovered from burns. The children have an opportunity to socialize with their peers in a pleasant out-of-doors-camp environment where both their physical and psychosocial recovery is enhanced and where physical challenges are only incidental. The Camp Janus project was initially established in 1986 as an official sesquicentennial activity sanctioned by the Governor of the State of Texas organized and supervised by an array of volunteers with a special humanitarian interest in the care of burned children. Although Camp Janus initially was a project of members of the Memorial Hermann Hospital burn care team supported by funds provided by grateful adult burn survivors, the project now boasts a volunteer staff from the Memorial Hermann Hospital, the Houston Fire Department, the Shriners Hospitals for Children - Galveston, The Junior League of Houston, recovered adult burn patients and others, selected and approved by the Camp Janus Board. The Camp Janus facility used is Camp for All (www.campforall.org), located 12 miles from Brenham, Texas and provides the site for this annual three-and-a-half day camping experience that provides an opportunity for swimming, fishing, canoeing, arts and crafts, and other exciting activities. Camp for All (CFA) is a barrier-free, fully accessible camp working to enrich the lives of children and adults with chronic illnesses or disabilities and works to serve those with special needs and their families through a variety of unique programs and facilities. Since its inception, Camp Janus has been extremely successful in accomplishing its purpose. The Camp Janus weekend is completely free for the children including local transportation to and from the camp. Funding for the camp is provided through donations handled by the Memorial Hermann Foundation and includes such local agencies as the Houston Fire Fighters Burned and Crippled Children's Fund, Wind & Fire Motorcycle Club, The Junior League of Houston, and through the generosity of many private donors. Children age 5 to 18, who have sustained burns, and with full parental or guardian consent, may attend.
