What is Camp Janus?
Camp Janus is a unique recreational, therapeutic, and educational opportunity for children and young adults (ages 5-18) who have recovered or are recovering from burns.
Our mission is to offer burn survivors life skills helpful in handling the unique challenges of their individual, lifelong recovery. We promote an environment where burn survivors can become the best versions of themselves possible, where they can thrive in today’s world, and where they can continually go Beyond Barriers.
What is the Camp Janus weekend like?
Camp Janus is a four-day sleep-over Summer camp for children and young adults, aged 5 to 18, who are burn survivors. The weekend is completely free for campers—including transportation to and from camp.
Campers enjoy activities like swimming, paint ball, arts & crafts, book fair, basketball, canoeing & kayaking, motorcycle show, dance, zip lines, rock walls, fishing, photography, horseback riding, nature trails, archery, and water day.
Camp Janus is held from the Thursday to the Sunday before Memorial Day. It is located at Camp for All, 12 miles from Brenham, TX.
Participants are from Texas or the surrounding area, and have full parental or guardian consent. Enrollment is limited and must be approved by the Camp Janus board.
Who are we?
Camp Janus has always been run by a community-focused volunteer Board of Directors. The Board works closely with local organizations like Shriners Hospital for Children, Memorial Hermann Hospital, The Junior League of Houston, Houston Firefighters’ Burned Children Fund, Wind & Fire Motorcycle Group, and others.
Volunteers from these organizations, as well as adult burn survivors and others with special humanitarian interests, staff the Camp Janus weekend. All volunteers are individually selected and approved by the Camp Janus Board.
How do we fund Camp Janus?
Every day donors like you—who want to see our young burn survivors thrive—are at the heart of Camp Janus.
Our campers are very grateful for the support and generosity that makes their special camp experience possible.
