Gallery: Mid-Atlantic Burn Camp

Ending each meal in song is one of the many traditions honored each year at the Mid-Atlantic Burn Camp, founded in 1992 by physical therapists working at the Baltimore Regional Burn Center.

The camp is specifically designed for children who have experienced burn injuries, so they can safely enjoy the outdoors with peers of shared experiences, where scars are the norm.
