Our Vision

Camp amigo exists to provide kids who have physical and emotional scars a place to be themselves and build a network of support that will last throughout their lives. The camp is fully funded by private donations and the campers stay free of charge.

Our History

It sounds simple enough, but it was quite the undertaking to make it happen! For years, several Tallahassee Firefighters attended camps run by the Southeast Burn Foundation in Florida. Rusty Roberts was one of those firefighters and one year, he decided that the North Florida area needed to have a camp too! With help of several of his friends, the Tallahassee Firefighters had the first camp at Billy Jo Rish State Park on Cape San Blas in 2001.

The campers had such a great time that Rusty decided that it should be an annual event, the group should incorporate, and become a real non-profit organization. After a couple years of amazing camp experiences, The Children's Burn Camp of North Florida, Inc was incorporated and issued 501(c)(3) status by the IRS. They also attained Charitable Organization status with the state of Florida.

These days Rusty and company are as busy as ever! Despite minor issues and a little hurricane, 2005 was a great success. We changed locations at the last minute and had to cut camp short a little, but it was still a great time. In 2006 we were back on the beach at Cape San Blas.

Camp Amigo this year is looking like it will be the best year ever as the camper count is the highest it has ever been! With Sunday and Saturday both being travel days, there are five full days of activities and fun for campers. Free transportation Buses run from the Tallahassee, Gainesville and Jacksonville areas.
